    What conclusion can one come to after reading this?

    "Bauer, who's running for the Republican nomination for governor, made his remarks during a town hall meeting in Fountain Inn that included state lawmakers and about 115 residents, according to a Greenville News account written by Nathaniel Cary.

    “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You're facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply."

    It's worse...It's like stealing your neighbor's food to feed strays.

    I wonder if he thinks it's wrong for churches to help the needy?

    What conclusion? That Bauer has a tin ear for politics but a good mindset for governing. He is right: when you reward certain kinds of behavior you get more of them. When you punish some kinds of behavior, you get less of them.

    Then it's wrong for churches to help the needy? Then Christian charity causes more harm than good?
