Redding's Saint George Greek Orthodox Church - Hypocrisy




In Redding the storm of fellow human hatred intensifies, created by the dark dynamics of those presumed to be in control, and ignored by those presumed to be in spiritual authority.

As I walked into Redding's Saint George Greek Orthodox Church, two signs hung above the door.



One an Orthodox cross, another a No Trespassing Sign, which was suggested I am  told by Redding  Police Chief Rob Paoletti.  What message does this send to the non believer ? What message does this send to the multitudes of homeless that take refuge in from cold and rain at the doors of this church? Sacramento California church's rotate days and take multitudes of homeless and shelter them in the doorways of their sanctuary, why cant you? Are we not instructed to "uphold the poor?" What does Gods Holy Word say about cowards?

They don't make it to Heaven.......






Infallibility



So after listening to the service , the priest told everyone that was going on the Platina Monastery tour that they MUST take the old windy DANGEROUS  road. When one fellow asked if he could take Red Bluff up the much safer Hy way 36 route he was admonished !!

"You Americans want to be free to do your own thing, no obedience, your not like the Greeks!"

"Remember we talked about that?"

 "See me shaking my finger at you"  the old priest said... 

The man said he would not disobey!!!


Pope shakes a finger at Sandinista leader Ernesto Cardenal in Nicaragua



The infallibility of the pope and now what I call newly demonstrated infallibility of pastoral flesh is nothing new. Many many children have fallen into that satanic trap, using such so called "holy" pastoral authority to justify inappropriate vile sexual molestations.


Hypocrisy

noun
noun: hypocrisy; plural noun: hypocrisies
  1. the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.
    synonyms:dissimulation, false virtue, cant, posturing, affectation, speciousness, empty talk, insincerity, falseness, deceit, dishonesty, mendacity, pretense, duplicity


If one could know and look into the heart of this old priest would we see that since the odds of any languishing , suffering homeless being Greek outside his church doors, or in Library park are non existent and could this perhaps be why we see the disregard of Christ's commands and the hell with them all?

"Has God called a fast, that we should hide from our own flesh" at the Greek Orthodox church?

We know how our Lord Jesus Christ feels about how you do it to the 'Least of these My brethren you do it to Me" and "Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith."

No Trespassing indeed....... Perhaps the Holy Spirit sees that sign as well.......

Redding California Police Chief Paoletti Verses Commands of Jesus Christ



Lester - 71 years old - Redding Homeless

One may find themselves asking as of late
why is the love in our community growing so cold for the poor, the homeless, what Jesus calls"The Least of these My Brethern  ?

Surly no city official would very publicly say in one breath "Nobody tells me what to do" at his last quarterly town hall meeting and yet have the audacity to tell God in the next how His ministries and charities need to be ran and by what amount of love and compassion may be applied to His people?


One without a doubt would find themselves very directly opposing the desires and direction of that very same God.



Homeless people good, Transients bad Redding California Police Chief Robert Paoletti?


For we are directed  quite clearly by his son Jesus Christ that we are NOT to separate or differentiate  who is worthy of His Love   ...and who is not.


Who is good? ...  Who is bad...  Who is Wheat? And who is a Tare Redding Police Chief ?

Oh thanks due to in large part to police chief Robert Paoletti the talk in Redding California as of late has reached a fevered divisive pitch.. What is a homeless person ? What is a transient ? Is one worthy of love and another is not?

Should a policeman dictate to the Christian organizations that serve them who should stay, and who should be gathered up and removed?

Now homeless Lester who's pictures you see  is a perfect example of what is called hospital patient dumping.

Will Lester possibly see any justice from the Redding Police Department and chief Paoletti and his seat on  Prime Healthcare's Hospital Board ?

Not Likely...

Who is Wheat ... And who is a Tare?

Shasta County Mental Health Center Director Dean Germano recently was quoted in the news as saying chief Paoletti's recent town hall comments on the local homeless population were "Bizarre", and his perceived by many as a negative comment about the Shasta County Hope Van for poor and homeless left many in the community shocked and dismayed.


A wonderful compassionate resource retired Redding Police Chief Peter Hansen helped develop in the City



No one really can imagine a government official directly opposing the commands of Jesus Christ and of all things expecting HIS Christian Charities to do the same ?






One again cannot imagine this same Redding Police chief AGAIN directly opposing the desires and commands of Jesus Christ wanting the Good News Rescue Mission to stop serving three free meals a day ?



Sometimes we love people nobody else will in hopes that they survive just another day... And that God will provide a Healing Miracle.




Who is good? ...  Who is bad...  Who is Wheat? And who is a Tare Redding Police Chief ?

Redding Record Searchlight, Politics & Death





At a recent city wide so called Safe City Project , with its leader April LaFrance , and interesting admonition was made, and Tweeted by a Redding Record Searchlight Reporter.

With the Good News Rescue Mission being the ONLY nightime rescue mission shelter in all of Redding and Shasta County California this fact, if reported... this crucial Tweet... if turned into a news story would rally the generous and caring community Redding has become, and positive steps surely would be taken that would change the dynamics of homelessness in our community, and quite possibly SAVE LIVES.

Not only that, If the facts and truth were released, to be ticketed by Redding Police Chief Robert Paoletti and his department for homeless sleeping now would be more than ever a very real violation of homeless persons civil and constitutional rights.

A situation here in Redding already determined to be cruel and unusual punishment in other California cities  by a Judge for the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Needless to say, in those cities positive changes were made, services added, lives saved....

Indeed one would think the Record Searchlight  /  Redding.com as a whole would be interested in the health, safety, and well being of our local homeless families, children, and veterans.

With temperatures that can dip to single digits in the winter here you would like to believe there is a news reporter somehow, somewhere with the courage and compassion to report on this crucial Tweet information.

Tweet information that Redding California's desperate homeless have long been painfully aware...

"Redding Good News Rescue Mission turned away 500 people last year."
