I have read with eminent satisfaction your refusing the charitable efforts
of some Godless atheists who have the effrontery and arrogance to
volunteer their time and resources to the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen. I
am, of course, speaking of those upstart atheists, Upstate Atheists
who seem to think charity can be freely handed out without first
securing fealty to our Lord and Savior! As we all know, charity must be
faith-based and withheld until allegiance to a God who has yet to get
around to helping them (but no doubt will, some day).
I am glad you amended your "No boundaries
" policy in soliciting for volunteers because if you don't nip this atheist indoctrination in the bud, why then, anyone
will be tempted to practice random acts of charity and we all know
evangelicals should have that market cornered. For, as it says in Luke
and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken
together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the
measure you use, it will be measured to you.
who do these heathens think they are trying to shake and pour like a
vodka martini their godless manna in the shit and piss-encrusted laps of
After all, does your mission statement
We Believe That:
human being should be treated with dignity and respect, therefore we treat
all people that eat at the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen as our guests and
everyone is welcome at our table.
a hungry person is the first step in addressing their needs.
who are hungry may have broader issues and needs that should be
volunteers and supporters are a valued asset and we know that they are
essential to our success.
continue to strive to ensure every volunteer and guest has a positive and
safe experience with our Soup Kitchen.
we do is to glorify God.
Nowhere does it say exceptions can't be made in the name of
glorifying God and that preconditions don't apply. Hallelulu, Lulu!
On your site's index page is this wonderful photograph of a
groundbreaking ceremony using gold-plated shovels that would probably
feed all of Spartanburg, South Carolina for a week. What a wonderful
message this sends, that humble people of God are pretending to do
actual work with gold shovels, symbolic of the riches that will await
them. Praise South Carolina native Rev. Ike
and Pat Robertson, if they but believe!
Now, knowing what a humble, if overmade-up, servant of God you are, no
doubt you would rebuff like atheist offers of charity any praise that
would come your way but I say poppycock! But don't listen to me, your
equally humble acolyte from afar. Let's listen, instead, to these
wonderful testimonials from your Facebook
allowing atheists to help is wrong on any number of levels. Did you
ever stop to think that you might be able to share God's love with the
atheists who come to help?
Lou Landrum is a hateful moron. Won't allow atheists to help the
homeless - even though they offered to not wear their shirts (and why
shouldn't they wear their shirts?). She is a moron because she somehow
believes atheists hang out with the devil. LMAO Lou, you need to learn
what an atheist is, and you need to keep your preaching to yourself and
just help people, and let others help people. Your help is NOT freely
given. Your help is dependent upon people sharing your religious
beliefs. Oh, and you suck.
Hello, I just read you refused the help of a secular organization, do
you often refuse people who are only interested in helping feed people ?
Jesus would be so ashamed of you.
Gee, I'd donate but you don't want my atheist, gay money.
Here is what the director of the Soup Kitchen, Lou Landrum, had to say
about atheists: " “They can set up across the street from the Soup
Kitchen. They can have the devil there with them, but they better not
come across the street,” Landrum said."*** Landrum, your ignorance is
only eclipsed by your hatred towards those who dont buy into your silly
superstitions. You should be so proud of that lump of coal you call a
Except if those that want to help and volunteer don't share your
beliefs, right? Then screw them and the less fortunate they want to help
out, right? Actually helping others only matters if you get to preach
and shove your beliefs down their throat because THAT'S what really
"Great news!!! We are now able to receive donations on-line!" Not `Great
news, the free-thinkers/atheists are volunteering their time to help.`?
I hope the hungry get mad at you when the money slows to a trickle.
You better check Goodwill out also, though. It seems that most, if not
all, of these "Christian" organizations are at least partly bizarre in
the way they deal with people and reality. And some are truly bizarre.
It was revealed years after WWII that when the Russians began
liberating the Nazi death camps, they withheld food from the Jews who
did not swear fealty to the Soviet Empire. It is heartening to know this
selective, highly conditional tough love has not completely gone out of
Yours truly in Christ, north, south, east, west and thereabouts,
