    I'm sitting here in a restaurant listing to some lady try and get these homeless people into church. They were sitting there minding their own business drinking their coffee when some lady comes up and starts preaching.

    What really got my attention was her spraying them down perfume before she sat down. I assume they sat through this humiliation because they thought they were going to get help.

    But her closing thoughts to these people were " God loves you but it is tough love and you have to help yourself" and then left without giving them anything.

    Just another deluded religious zealot trying to convince people that invisible deities exist.

    Maybe. But by "opportunist" I meant that she had an audience without a choice. No home, in a restaurant probably enjoying some shelter and coffee, they had no place to escape to. I'm sure she knew it. Opportunist. Gotta hand it to her, really.

    If the restaurant owner/management were aware it was happening and didn't want to allow it they would have done something.

    All well and good to point out this somewhat disturbing incident...

    so long as you acknowledge there are also untold thousands of "church ladies" who volunteer their time to care for domestic abused women, orphanages, soup kitchens, homeless sheters, etc. by giving them their basic needs without a hard preaching or any preaching at all accompanying their charity.

    Of course...I'm critical of the the person not Christianity. There are millions of good Christians and a lot of good Christian organizations. And maybe the lady didn't know how disrespectful and condescending she sounded to other people.

    I am sure she made those poor people feel even better about their miserable situation.

    What a horrible woman.
