My friend's church, which is fairly notorious for harboring terrible people who use the fact that they attend church as an excuse to be... well terrible people, is having an event called "Homeless for the Holidays".

What they're doing is the youth group is going to be sleeping outside of the church for the night of the 20th in order to "help bring awareness to homeless this holiday season".

When I heard about this, I asked if they were going to actually be doing anything to help the homeless or are they essentially just camping out for a night and my friend got pissed saying that I'm always trying to start **** about his church.

I just sorta laughed when he said this. The youth group at his church goes around vandalizing buildings and cars, and on dozens of occasions kids have been caught making out or even having sex INSIDE the church.

This is exactly why there's so many people who dislike Christianity.

Well, just like in Jaws, if they know there's a massive fucking shark why do they keep going into the water?

room in the church should be offered up and the youth group should cook them dinner, get the homeless out of the cold and the youths can go back to their houses...that would make more sense

That would make a lot more sense. Sleeping outside isn't helping anyone, feeding them and showing support does.

We did that before in my university. It helps to raise awareness and we got lots of clothes and money from it.

Yea, I've heard from a mate of mine about how church youth groups here tend to not really do anything constructive and just screw around doing pointless stuff, which does defeat the purpose of church really. He says they some kids turn up to "youth advice" night just to get free food and drink, and they tag on the walls and stuff. Then I'm a bad person because I don't believe in welfare for people that are fully capable of working in at least a part time job. Riiiight.....

Any church that has youth ministry explicitly labled a "youth group" or that employes someone who is solely a "youth pastor/minister/etc" is a bad church IMO. Thems is just the signs of ol' fashioned brain washin' & indoctrination.

I mean it's not like a kid can really make a spiritual decision like that, exposing him/her to youthspecific ministry is like McDonalds marketing its bull**** at kids, we can't blame them for adults because they should no better, but you can't blame little kids for wanting that happy meal.

They'll never manage, you need to be wasted to sleep outside a church. (there's no alcohol involved is there?)

Raise awareness of what? That homeless people are homeless?

And why were you getting clothes and money from it?

Sleeping outside could help the homeless if they got people to sponsor them to sleep outside. They could raise some money, and donate it to a charity that helps homeless people.

Raise awareness of homelessness. You don't see many homeless people on a university campus and having to walk by us everyday reminded people that the problem exists.

People donated clothes and money to us.
