    Just another example of the right following the Bible until it doesn't suit their agenda. Why does it matter who cleans up the road? Of course, this could lead to other good deeds, like a soup kitchen or food pantry. This is obviously a sign of the end of days.

    I have no problems with it and I love God and churches.

    Trekie, I think your idea of you creating a soup kitchen or food pantry
    for the homeless in Jonesboro is a great idea!

    Kinda like how the Salvation Army got started!
