"I wonder what would happen if the Catholic Church used all its church buildings as homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and free medical clinics until such time as homelessness, hunger and lack of medical care were all eradicated? My guess is that the jesus guy would be much happier than he is with the pretentious Sunday services."
