Mayor Adams invokes the Apostles to justify New York’s homeless encampment clean-up policy | app

NEW YORK – Mayor Eric Adams and dozens of religious leaders held a Christian praise rally in City Hall Park on Thursday – an event in which Adams invoked the apostles to justify his policy of removing encampments from homeless from city streets.

“We are on the wrong road as a city. We tolerated homelessness, we walked past our brothers and sisters who live in tents on the street, and we normalized it,” he said. “I can’t help but believe that if Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were here today, he would be out on the streets with me, helping people get out of the camps.”
