A Christian-based homeless shelter in Columbus, Ga., is being accused of not accepting gay people after evicting two women and their children.
According to a Jan. 13 report by CBS affiliate WRBL Channel 3, the House of Mercy kicked two women out after rumors were spread the women were gay. However, one woman denied the rumor.
"It was unholy," she told the TV station. "It was not a place of God." The woman’s identification was kept anonymous because she said she is a victim of domestic violence.
Shelter officials said, however, that the women were kicked out for smoking and not abiding to the curfew.
From the report:
“Elder Bobby Harris, director of the House of Mercy, says most people have an agenda when they come in and ask for help. He runs a tight ship. House rules include no secular music, no hats indoors and no sexual activity of any kind. Regular church service is required. Harris says the shelter would welcome non-practicing gay people, but even if the residents engage in sexual activity off the premises during their free time, he discharges them."
"We have little children here," Harris told the station.
