Integrity Village lasted a few hours in St. Louis County. How does a small community of believers defend the rights of the homeless when every move is blocked by local government? Zoning keeps the undesirables out, who, incidentally, are desirable so long as they have money. All the good wishes in the world doesn’t create the political will to do something about the crisis. Neighbors everywhere in Metro St. Louis say, “Absolutely not” to a homeless anything in their area. If the folks have income then we can talk, if they’re the kind the hospitals and police dump, well dump them somewhere else. Hello! Knock, knock! You’ve run out of “somewhere else’s”. Downtown St. Louis has lost its tolerance too.
