Reader: Fake Christians Ignore Homeless Issues

Kristin Pazulski's recent post about the Right to Rest Act, which would codify the right of the homeless to sleep, sit and lie down, among other things, stirred passions among our readers.

Many of those who responded were unhappily surprised that such basic issues remain in question.

Others expressed frustration that more progress isn't being made when it comes to this subject
