Jesus told people to give to the poor. But Mayor Michael Bloomberg says not before he can check the salt content of what you’re giving.

Check out the latest insanity from CBS:

Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!

Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from Bloomberg’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.

So the homeless can starve but Nanny Bloomberg will make sure it’s not from heart disease associated with too much salt. Thank goodness for Nanny Bloomberg.
