Georgia Homeless Shelter Throws Out Couple They Thought Were Gay
Georgia’s “House of Mercy” homeless shelter kicked out two women they suspected of being gay. (h/t Think Progress)
Both women told the local news that they weren’t even gay, and one of them said she came from an abusive home. Elder Bobby Harris, the director of the organization, told the local press that he would welcome “non-practicing gay people,” but even if the residents were to engage in sexual behavior on their own time off the premises, they would be rejected.
The shelter’s director, Bobby Harris, has his reasons:
“We have little children here,” Harris explained.
One of the women kicked out said even if she was gay, as a Christian, she disagrees with the organization’s stance on the issue.
“It was unholy,” she said. News 3 is concealing her identity as she is recovering from domestic violence. “It was not a place of God.”
Other residents testify to the healthy spiritual environment Harris fosters.
“It’s great,” one female resident told News 3. “God is so good.”
