It will help those who want to be helped, but the percentage of those is unknown. Those with mental illness and/or drug addictions need help with those issues first before they can appreciate a safer place to live.

As long as they are managed by responsible people to help the people living there.

Absolutely! I do not think people should be allowed to live there for more than a couple of years, until they are on their feet though. They can then move to low income housing, and move up from there. A lot of this is needed, and it works. Look at how much it helped in Utah! It saved a lot of money

Unless you screen them you'll end up with addicts and free loaders instead of people who need and want to be helped to get back on their feet.

As long as we continue to support them they will never get back on their feet and work at many of the 1000's of jobs available out there.

You can't give people anything. They will destroy it because they don't care.

The vast majority of homeless people want to be homeless. It is like a badge of honor for them. The more you do for the homeless the more there will be. The dogooders are creating another society of dependents. How has LBJ's "Great Society" worked out?

It will "help" the parasites who enable the bums by providing them with a permanent income stream.

Of course. Why not? Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

A person is free to pray wherever they want. I you don't like it, move on.

What a stupid question. Who could oppose allowing "coaches...to pray at games", or anywhere else? But, should coaches, or anyone else, be "allowed" to coerce anyone to pray anywhere? You fail, again.

So, you're good with praying to Satan and allowing government employees to coerce people to do so?

What ever happened to the separation of church and state? I'm so sick of the religious right dictating our laws.

Today's Supreme Court religio-extremists have ruled otherwise, but a founder, namely Jefferson, desired a "wall of separation between Church and State." He produced a version that excludes all miracles by Jesus and most mentions of the supernatural, including the resurrection.
