Ongoing problems with the area's homeless population has led a downtown church to lock its doors during the day.

Trouble with vagrants? In Lawrence, who'd thunk it.
Some kind of world we live in....
some that need help refuse it, and some that don't need help, demand it.
Then of course.... we have those who destroy everything in sight...... which only makes things worse for those that are working to better themselves.
What can you do..... call Jesus??
probably a case where a few homeless people ruined a good situation for all the others by acting inappropriately
Waka, clean yourself up, get a job and stop being a drain on society. Then again, with grammar so atrocious I presume you cannot find work or perhaps you have no desire to work.
I cannot fault a church for wanting to protect its employees. Many vagrants and homeless are violent threats if they don't get their way. Not all are like that, but apparently enough that even a church has to take security measures.
If I am not mistaken FUMC may have been the last downtown church to stay unlocked during the day.
As a member of this church I can tell you that the poop and pee that was left by the homless in the church (they didn't use the bathrooms for fear of being seen, I guess) was nasty.
They would sneak in during the day and stay all night.
By the way wak1 you are a moron and your I'm on crack humor wasn't funny a long time ago!
