Which Religion Cares Most about the Homeless?

 

 

 

In the streets of Austin, in the United States, a homeless man became a sociologist by asking the following question: "Which religion cares most about the homeless?”

The young man then decided to put passersby to the test with the help of nine small plastic bowls each labelled with the name of one of nine mainstream religions.  

He then posted a sign which read: "Which religion cares the most about the homeless?” The little bowls were intended to receive alms from the passersby who, by bending down, could discover the religion which corresponded to theirs, according to the Huffington Post.
