New Poll: "But, why? How?"

From the words of Jesus in the Gospels, to St. Francis, St. Vincent de Paul, Dorothy Day and Mother Teresa - 2,000 years of Christian tradition has always pointed to Jesus being one with the person of the outcast, the homeless, the abandoned and crushed. But, why? How? If questioned, could we somehow verbalize this mystery to others?

Today, a new poll is launched and begs your response - "Do you believe that you have a relatively good understanding as to why and how Christ is present in the outcast/homeless and could articulate it to others?"

Take a brief moment and scroll down to the bottom of the page and vote. Thank you for giving your opinions in all the Homeless in America polls!

It is not just the money situation that makes homeless - mental health with its drugs etc has destroyed so many , making them thus homeless. It is why they falsely brand so many and gives them no right to look for a job. When many of the homeless were young, they were left out, unloved and then mental health problems set in and then confirmed they were not worthy of any love. They received freaky labels [by peers, parents, etc.] which was as good as saying "they are garbage" take it away [dump them in the trash]!!!!!!!!! ... It's not just about Jesus, it's also about mental health in this country. P.H
