Only 4 NYC houses of worship sheltering migrants nearly nine months after program launch
Story by Chris Sommerfeldt, New York Daily News • 12h

NEW YORK — Less than a half dozen houses of worship in the city are currently operating as temporary shelters for migrants as part of a program that’s supposed to involve 50 faith institutions, the New York Daily News has learned.

Upon first announcing the program last June, Mayor Eric Adams said his administration had 50 houses of worship on tap that would shortly be able to start housing 19 single adult migrants each. At the time, Adams told reporters the program would alleviate pressure on the city’s overcrowded shelter system and save his administration money as his office estimated it would be cheaper to house a migrant in a faith institution like a church than in a hotel or an emergency site.
But in a private briefing with local elected officials on Friday afternoon — nearly nine months after Adams’ announcement — Rudy Giuliani, executive director of the mayor’s Office of Housing Recovery, said just four houses of worship are currently providing shelter for migrants as part of the program.
Would you be willing to fight and die for multiculturalism?  Would you put your life on the line for “Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity” (DIE); “Environmental, Social, and corporate Governance” (ESG); or other Marxist worldviews?  Would you go to war to preserve the right of delusional men to use women’s restrooms and dominate women’s sports?  Would you fight for any government that hunts down and imprisons J6 protesters as political hostages but celebrates Antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters who cause physical injury and property damage?

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
I am not sure the NGOs are proceeding with the full blessings of the Churches whose names they invoke. It seems they are their own organizations operating on their own.

Does anyone have any info on that?

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
