What's the worse that could happen?

Found this excerpt from an article talking about Salvation Army Thrift stores (thanks Stephen Court!). Here's the last part which mentions Youth For Christ:

"In Winnipeg, a non-profit group called Youth for Christ is investing $11-million to build a downtown complex for troubled youth that would be open to all, and the city is kicking in $2.6-million and a land grab to help.

The response?

Complaints. A university of Winnipeg professor named Jim Silver, whose research is urban and inner-city studies, whined that "city council [is] supporting these outsiders who are coming in and think God will solve everything. It's awful. This isn't the right way to meet the needs of kids in the inner city. This is a colonial attitude."

Spare us the drama. Youth For Christ stands a good chance of keeping a large number of kids off the streets and out of juvenile detention. What's the worst that could happen? Some of these kids become religious and go on to effectively help others? God forbid. "

What's the worse that could happen? Some people could get saved. Ahh, praise God.
