"Now what was it that Jesus said? 'Give me your poor and needy, and I'll go tell them to pound sand.' That's at least the Republican vision of Jesus." |

Comment: Here's one reaction to this quote, as posted on a Free Republic webpage: "There’s no discussing the issue rationally with a liberal blatherer like him. I would just point out that we can’t look to The Bible or Jesus’ teachings and find that Jesus was in favor of Obamacare or food stamps or school lunch programs. I would also point out that, in times of tragedy, such as Hurricane Katrina, which the liberals love to bash Bush over, volunteer members of churches arrive to deliver aid and comfort to the victims. Various Christian charities also get involved to help the victims as part of their Christian mission. But this dude doesn’t care about any of that. The only proper way to deliver any aid to people is through officially sanctioned government programs. And if aid is not delivered in that manner, nothing else matters. He can’t recognize all the good that Christian charities do, because then he can’t bash Christians for not doing enough."
