It doesn’t seem very Christ-like, but a Christian homeless shelter in Williamsburg, Kentucky has just taken the rash and uncharitable step of kicking out all female residents. Emergency Christian Ministries, the only homeless shelter in the city, has decided to evict the women currently living at the facility and ban further women from seeking shelter under its roof. The reason for the pre-Christmas removal of the shelter’s ladies? Sex, reports WYMT. The director of the Christian homeless shelter, Billy Woodward said that people are having sex at the shelter, and that behavior can’t be tolerated.
The director of the Christian homeless shelter said that because the facility houses more men than women, it only makes sense to remove the women from the shelter. Over the last two weeks alone, around a dozen women were asked to leave. Those who were willing to be sheltered a half-hour away were relocated to a women’s-only shelter in Gray, Kentucky.
In addition to kicking out and banning women, the Christian homeless shelter has made the almost unbelievable decision to bar children in some cases, too. The reason? Some of them might be female or be living with a mother. When asked directly if the shelter would be willing to house children in any situation, Woodward replied, “Right now, no because of the female factor.”
Well sure it makes perfect sense to kick out the women. After all if you read your Bible you know that it wasn't the man who got all corrupted by the serpent and suddenly wanted to do unspeakable things all over the Garden of Eden.
It was the chick.
Seriously though who in the hell kicks women and children out into the cold at Christmas time?
If only there were an allegorical story in some holy book about homeless people needing lodging on Christ's birthday.
