    There was no name calling at all in his post. You're in error.

      Religious people and institutions do charitable work all of the time. There is a huge difference between a technical "crime" based on solely on a statute and a real crime.

      Your point is taken, but personally I cannot make myself see feeding the poor and homeless as a "crime" in any rational sense of the word. The true crime would be in doing nothing for them.

        No, you are. Look again, or shall I start referring to your posts as "rubbish", which is an insult.

        Take the chip off your shoulder before it chokes you.

          "Rubbish" as in "Bull, I disagree".

          Wow, a little tender today aren't we?

            Can you provide any evidence for that?

            So do non religious people. Your point? They violated a law if they lacked a permit or violated zoning laws.

            What if the food kills them because she didn't meet health requirements.

Maybe the owner of the parking lot was an asswhole and dropped a dime on her for trespassing.

                  She invoking her religious rights over this matter does cause some to wonder whether a Christian or a Muslim invoking the same right would received the same ruling or whether one or the other would have an advantage.

                  Me, if ANYONE was handing out food to the less fortunate and I was a cop, I would suddenly find that there was something far more pressing for my attention in that neighborhood.
                  I was just wondering about that.

                  There are all kinds of regulations on selling food (and making a profit thereby), but isn't there a bit of wiggle room in the fact that she was giving it away ?

                  I know that you aren't allowed to sell packaged food after its sell-by date in the UK, but giving it away is a bit of a grey area.

                    The comment about Muslims from you was questionable, considering how you have claimed others to be Antisemitic.

                    There is no war on Christians going on right now, there is no war on Muslims nor is there a war on Jews going on right now.

                      What does that say about the left???

                      They oppose freedom in every sense of the word.

                      R Evans,

                      IMO no real LE officer, no real court officer here in the USA would say the above.

                      Though I would disagree with you about the conservative echo chamber infesting this forum. The "conservative" members of the US gov are good people, IMO this includes folks like John Bohener and possible GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

                      Why Mountain man is bringing up Muslims in the sense that he is, just doesnt add up. I dont see Jeb Bush, Rick Sanchez, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio going around randomly talking about Muslims in the sense that Mountain man does. The views espoused by Bwaha, Mountain Man, and AJR, are not echoed by leading GOP candidates, and I find this quite interesting.

                        Its the Left's abuse of Power that makes the outstanding impression these days.

                        And, Govt abuse of power is nothing new, its been happening since the first Caveman Chief killed some guy to take his mate. Its routine in the rest of the world, but it's not supposed to be the case here in the US.
                        This country should be allowed to be different from the rest of the world, but the Left does not agree.

                        Thus, we have all of these threads about the abuse of power these days; the Left does NOT believe in smaller Govt with limited powers, the opposite is true.

                        Feel free to post up threads about the abuse of power on the Right, we need someone to keep us honest.
                        Don't you?

                          No, I am not left or right. I support or oppose an issue on merit. So when there's an idiot I don't care what party they're from. I'll oppose them.
