Chef Joan Cheever has been feeding the homeless in San Antonio TX, once a week since 2005.
She has been ticketed for her illegal activities, which carries a $2,000 fine, and plans to fight this at her court appearance in June.
How is she going to fight it? What is her argument?
Religious freedom. This is her way of praying – to help the needy. Yes, this is the first time I’ve read about using this argument for a citizen’s activities for a good purpose.
The officer who gave her the citation told her, “If you want to pray, go to church.”
