This is ghoulish.
SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — KCBS has learned that Saint Mary’s Cathedral, the principal church of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, has installed a watering system to keep the homeless from sleeping in the cathedral’s doorways. [...]
A cathedral staff member confirmed to KCBS the system was installed, perhaps a year ago, to deter the homeless from sleeping there.
In case you hadn't heard, California only has one year of water left.
Even if California wasn't on the verge of thunderdome, why is a Catholic church drenching homeless people "every 30 to 60 minutes" during the night?
What did the church have to say for itself?
The statement goes on to say, “Catholic organizations in San Francisco serve thousands of homeless people every year, providing shelter, food, and critical services. That is the true picture of compassionate Catholic care.
They provide them with shelter and food but also occasionally shoot water at them so they will go away.
