This Space for Rent

Christian compassion in action.

Stories are being published about the people who fled coastal towns in Texas as hurricane Rita approached, and they don't paint a pretty picture of the United States:

As they sat outside on folding chairs, having a smoke, they described seeing people on their front lawns glaring at them with shotguns in hand, and pickup trucks with nooses hanging in back (most of the bus passengers were black).The drivers said whenever they tried to stop to rest or let their passengers use the restroom, town officials had court orders waiting for them to get out of town, an assertion those town officials later denied.

Doesn't, um, the Bible have some unkind things to say about this sort of behavior?
