Granted, I have a limited experience with churches, but it seems so counterproductive to close down a program that is enriching the community and helping those who need the most help. Isn't that what religion is out to do? Reach out to those in need, those in trouble, and show them the way of spirituality and compassion? In theory, of course.

In fact, they are waaaay liberal, pantheistic, "everyone is God" sorts without even an official creed.
