Reply To: Shelter discrimination blurs separation of church, state

Here’s the long awaited reply from the MATS program:

We have two other shelters they can go to that are merely blocks away. One for males and one for females. Also, we have a shelter down the road that we can drive them to. In addition to this information, we only had one person who fits your description who did not want to go to any of the shelters in the area and we were able to find a home for him.

Thank you for your compassion and hard work for your fellow man. Please discontinue correspondence with MATS. We will continue to be diligent and faithful to do our job here and I’m sure you will do yours there. But I see no reason for further correspondence.

He didn’t want to share this info and now he wishes I “stop correspondence” with him, which you all should know doesn’t discourage me at all from replying. Maybe someone else can get better info from this person if we turn up the heat a little bit.
