Who Can Best Help The Homeless?

The photo I showed on my recent Facebook page with people carrying clipboards at a homeless camp in Bucks County, PA was not of officials serving eviction notices to make room for homes for illegal aliens. This was pure satire. 

The photo was from a January 30, 2013 article on Phillyburbs.com of a visit from Penndel Mental Health Center and from the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission. Each organization represents two different paradigms of how to help the homeless:  

    • Penndel Mental Health uses legal dope and psychobabble, cognitive behavioral therapy and virtually puts them out to pasture. They want to fund their program by hook or crook. 
  • Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission counsels them with the Bible and gives them a mission.

Homeless in Philly_1

A mantra in Bucks County is that homeless people need mental health treatment. Here’s a parody that illustrates this: 

Don’t Think Freely (parody of Buck Owen’s Act Naturally) 

Well, they’re going to put me in the nuthouse 

They want to make a monkey out of me 

They’re going to put me in the nuthouse 

And all they have to do 

Is round up me 

  

Well, they are going have to chase me real far 

They’re going to hunt me and they can’t really tell 

If I really need to be in the nuthouse 

They expect me to play the part for them real well 

  

I hope you’ll come and see me in the nuthouse 

Maybe you can slip me a file in some cake 

I hope you’ll come and see me in the nuthouse 

Where I’m all doped up and can’t think freely 

  

They want to put me in the nuthouse 

That’s because they don’t think I am OK 

Well the only reason that I’m in the nuthouse 

Is that I’m homeless in Bucks County PA 

  

Well, they are going have to chase me real far 

They’re going to hunt me and they can’t really tell 

If I really need to be in the nuthouse 

They expect me to play the part for them real well 

  

I’ll be a homeless collection in the nuthouse 

From the state they want to collect their precious bounty 

I’ll be a monkey caged there in the nuthouse 

Where I’m all doped up and can’t think freely 

  

Well the only reason that I’m in the nuthouse 

Is that  I’m homeless in Bucks County PA 

The only reason that I’m in the nuthouse 

Is  that I’m homeless in Bucks County PA 

  

Dupe-dupe a looney Dupe-dup a looney Dupe-dupe a looney… 

They’re coming to take me away ah-hah he-he ah-hah ah-hah he-he ah-hah he-he… 

 

There Are Homeless in Bucks County; A Journey with The Homeless illustrates the silent battle between worldly, secular psychology and Christianity over how to help the homeless.

Update: The photo was from the January 30, 2013 edition of Phillyburbs.com, not June 30, 2013. You may have wondered why people are wearing coats in June. Perhaps Penndel Mental Health Center representatives gave them some legal dope samples and they wore coats in June?
