Homeless Jesus in trouble

Bernard Weil/Toronto Star

A “Homeless Jesus” statue depicting Jesus as a homeless person lying on a bench covered in a blanket was recently installed outside of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Bay Village, Ohio. So, naturally, someone called the cops on it within 20 minutes of it being revealed.

As the Cleveland Scene reports, Father Alex Martin, the church’s pastor, received a visit from a Bay Village police officer after someone reported a homeless person sleeping on a park bench. He says he hopes the incident can serve as a lesson for how we can better help those in need.

Americans traveling outside North America say it feels like VietNam War days, once again. Pretend to be Canadians!

    It’s currently unclear how many unhoused people reside in LA—the count was stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and last year’s count of 41,000 is almost certainly lower than the current population. A report from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development found that the number of unhoused people nationwide went up by over 12,000 during the pandemic.
