Interesting story on the homeless in the SF Chronicle the other day. It's about how the political spat over the "Care Not Cash" plan (cutting aid to homeless people and giving it to homeless services instead) is being debated on religious/theologoical grounds. One of the leading critics of the program, California State Senator John Burton has put up posters all over the city with this slogan "Jesus gave money to poor people on the streets of Galilee."
Which, of course, is an excellent point and one that is important to heed. Even this Jew admits that Jesus (that is, of course, if he existed) said and did some pretty cool things. The only problem with that is this- I don't think there were any crackhead's in Jesus' time.
