I am a Christian (go ahead and insult me, I'm on the internet, I expect it).   
   
I doubt all things that are this blatantly stupid when I see them online, so I looked it up.  Here is an article talking about the article:

		 [dot] com/2013/02/09/did-a-church-close-food-bank-because-it-attracted-poor-people/ . This says that it is true, but the church was against it (this was a move by the minister alone), the minister was let go that year (waaayy back in 2000).   
   
So, I want to first start by acknowledging how horrible this is, but there is more to the story.   
   
That said, this is a common object point for ministers to use (more or less). Most of the stories are false, but most churches think of these as lessons of what to avoid doing. Often paired with the parable of the Samaritan as an example of what "Love thy neighbor" looks like. In short, look at this as an outlier - a very headline friendly, very sensational outlier - but not the norm nonetheless.   
   
TL;DR: Good for you.

The article says they will be focusing more on "spiritual hunger."

I wanted to send you this friendly little letter to inform you of your imminent demise. If you're curious about the frequency of which I send these letters, it is merely to instill as much fear as I can. As if basting a turkey. Then I will proceed to have sex with.
That's right.
I'm going to **** the fear turkey.
Follow me *************** !
Sincerely, Alucard

I don't really get this. So waht? Implying any of you even ******* care about the poor outside these pretentious moments on FJ (or Facebook).
Church is not a place to feed the poor. It is a place of wellbeing of the church community.
I don't care about religion much, but I assume a happy churchee is like a well oiled car, ready to do their religious duty. Happy churchee creates benefits for the poor with value 100X. If he has not ahd church meal - 50X. Finally we can speculate that a poor person would evaluate the snack as 2X. So we see, that when we rather give snacks to the unpoor, the poor eventually would benefit.

This is actually the reality. For example when an event is held to rise funds or to discuss some welfare initiative, it is more beneficial to feed the organisers or performers, rather than to grant immediate relief to the poor on the expense of future benefits.
It's the fish&fishing-line situation.

Therefore OP is not only unfunny, but also seems to be overlooking many things just to jerk off with some pity thumbs.

An argument I left aside was that church is for those of the faith, meaning that 1) poor people could be not of the same faith, thus rendering these infidel meals completely bogous, 2) particular church maybe rather a relaxation centre for the members. E.g. sometimes it doesn't matter if you're in the same intrest club, but if you are disrupting peace, then you must leave; it's a private gathering.

...except when one of the main teachings of the church is to feed and clothe those who do not have the means to do so themselves, heck even if they do have the means to feed or clothe themselves you should help them. You know that whole "when I was hungry you had fed me and when I was ***** you had clothed me" part (i dont know exactly where that is because I'm not catholic, but I was raised in a catholic school so I know it's in there

I really have no sympathy for the homeless. They obviously did something wrong to wind up where they are now, they ****** up somewhere in life and now have to suffer. They get no pity. At least this guy found a job finally, that I respect, but usually they don't. It's really not that hard to find a job... if some 16 year old highschool kid can find one, why the **** can't they? They have no excuse. If you just lost your job, you'll do what ever it takes to keep food on the table. You'll mow a damn lawn, do some manual labor, it doesn't matter. I don't understand where this false sense of entitlement comes from. They act like they're too good to do certain jobs like fast food and stuff. They need to get over themselves. You have no reason to feel accomplished and like you deserve anything.

I agree that there are some that think the world owes them something but man homeless have mental or emotional issues and are incapable of gainful employment.
I have always maintained that people who work hard never have trouble finding work but there are cases where people are incapable of working hard.

I highly respect one particular individual in my town that has obvious mental disabilities but continues to collect bottles daily from over 40 businesses. He donates this money to the care center that houses him.

The original Christians would sell everything they had and give the money to their church which wasn't a building but a group a people. They would use that money to get them by and take care of others. The term Christian isn't made from people saying we follow Christ, but people who could recognize Christians because they were so like Christ. When the plague broke out the Christians were the only ones who would stay to take care of the sick and dieing. They would work all day for money just to be able to give it all to feeding the poor. That Church isn't following Christ, it is a daycare center for a bunch of old people who live in a rut and are just playing dress up

Well, they're right about one thing, it definitely makes it more awkward lol.

Ok libtards since you blindly bandwagon,

their food kitchen was intended for the homeless, the actually broke and destitute, and people were using it while they paid their cars/phones/houses off to eat well instead of paying for it themselves.

they have homes and possessions they have the income to pay for, while others who were meant to use it have nothing.

Not all Christians are "selfish greedy ******** ". The church in the story has forgotten the mission of the Church. I imagine Jesus is indeed doing a face palm as the picture suggests. None of us are perfect. Not even those who are called as pastors and preachers. But most of us try to do better by payuing attention to the teachings of the Bible and especially the words of Jesus foud in the books of Matthew, Mark , Luke, and John.

I'm angry of course, but I kinda figured they'd do that.
