Upstate Atheists, a South Carolina group, wanted to offer its services at the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen, but were denied the opportunity to help the poor because they don’t believe in God.

You would figure that atheists joining a soup kitchen to help the less fortunate would be embraced by good Christians, but Lou Landrum, the executive director of the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen, made it clear kindness and goodwill for all does NOT apply to nonbelievers.

Lou Landrum… told the Herald-Journal she would resign from her job before she let atheists volunteer and be a “disservice to this community.”

“This is a ministry to serve God” she said. “We stand on the principles of God. Do they (atheists) think that our guests are so ignorant that they don’t know what an atheist is? Why are they targeting us? They don’t give any money. I wouldn’t want their money.”
