LOS ANGELES, CA – The city of Los Angeles is considering a ban on feeding homeless people in public. What type of Grinch’s would propose denying homeless people a meal? Politicians, of course.

If this ban sounds familiar to you it’s because our own City of Houston Grinch’s passed the same type ordinance last year.

“If any citizen goes to a Kroger or Randall’s and they purchase a loaf of bread and a package of bologna and they make food for 5 or more people and they give it out, they’ve committed a crime in the city of Houston. That is subject to a fine of up to $2,000,” says Houston attorney Paul Kubosh who opposes the ban.

Much of the debate is over how close hot food preparations areas are to the final destination but Kubosh says that’s not the real issue.

“What this ordinance has done is violate the freedoms of religious people to practice their religion in the city of Houston.”

If you get the impression this issue isn’t really dead, you’re right but for now, the City of Angels must decide whether to penalize their citizens who want to help those less fortunate.
