Volunteers Rejected By Local Soup Kitchen Because They Are Atheists [POLL]
In South Carolina, a director of a local soup kitchen told the group, Upstate Atheists, that she would rather “resign” than have them volunteer at her organization. Upstate Atheists, is a group that focuses on helping people in need. According to the Christian Post, this is what Lou Landrum, executive director of the soup kitchen, had to say about the situation:
“This is a ministry to serve God,” . “We stand on the principles of God. Do they (atheists) think that our guests are so ignorant that they don’t know what an atheist is? Why are they targeting us? They don’t give any money. I wouldn’t want their money.”
Instead, Upset Atheists volunteers decided to pass out 300 care packages to the homeless, right across the street from the Christin non-profit that rejected them. The group had an online fundraiser that helped them to collect $2,000 in order to buy socks, deodorant, gloves and toothpaste along with other items.
So what are your feelings on this situation?
