Father Constantine has replied this morning:

Constantine Osuchukwu Samuel Johnson once said that "the true test of any civilization is how it treats those on the margins." By cutting the funding for the homeless we are really showing what kind of civilization we are building -one that looks after and protects the rich, powerful and influential and ignores or doesn't take very seriously the plight of the 'least among us'. We should be cutting spending on the billions we spend on incarcerating refugees by closing detention centres and use the money on helping our homeless people tackle the issues that lead them to homelessness, like addictions, domestic violence, mental illness, etc. What can I do? May I help? I agree with Brigid that we ought to do something about this FG spending cut for homelessness advocacy.
