The new leftist ‘compassion:’ Cities across America criminalizing anyone feeding the homeless

Left-wing Democrats claim to have cornered the market on compassion, regularly accusing conservatives and Republicans of being mean-spirited, lacking in compassion and selfish.
The reality is just the opposite, however: It is liberals who are devoid of true compassion. They only hand it out in metered doses and only to favored people.
That much is apparent in Democrat-run cities that are now banning residents from helping the homeless, and then fining them if they do anyway.
Religious institutions have traditionally offered a helping hand to those most in need, and that of course includes the homeless. Food, shelter, a place to sleep and clothing are all part of what churches have traditionally offered for people who needed a leg up.
Fine would ruin church for good
But, as reported by DC Clothesline, officials in a Maryland community have now criminalized offering help to the homeless. One church in the town of Dundalk may now have to shut down, after being fined $12,000 for assisting the homeless – which is more like a Christian duty, actually.
