Cops Called on Homeless Jesus Statue Because “He Could Have Been a Threat to the Neighborhood”
(FEDERALJACK) A woman driving home one night saw what she thought was a homeless man sleeping on a bench outside of a church. Apparently the thought of a fellow human being in a time of need in her neighborhood scared her so much she called the police on him. The homeless man turned out to be a statue called Homeless Jesus. The church was surprised someone would call the police, but this type of attitude towards the homeless is no surprise.
After finding out she was wrong the woman still could not admit to it, so she then proceeded to say that the statue is “inappropriate,” and that Jesus was not homeless. I’m no biblical scholar, and I don’t go to church, but last time I checked Jesus hung out with, and took care of what the people of the day would have considered the lowest class of human beings. Hookers, the homeless, the sick, indigent, and people shunned by society. I’m pretty sure the only inappropriate thing here is the woman’s response to seeing what she perceived to be a fellow human being in need.
