Ohhh, let's get a summary on all the articles about religion and Jesus run in the NYT. It's such a religious newspaper :-)
Anyway, of all the misleading hypocritical lies from the left, this is one of my favorites.
"Like Abrams and Senator Cory Booker, Mayor Pete says his faith made him a progressive. Scripture directs him to defend the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the societal castoffs."
The left uses phrases like this to claim the moral high ground.. They've done so for decades. Because, to a leftist, confiscating significant portions of other peoples money and wasting between 80-100% of it on failed government programs that, at best, develop a multi-generational government dependency is just what Jesus would want us to do, and anyone who disagrees is then actually disagreeing with Jesus...
Besides the obvious flaws in the logic, it ignores the multiple studies that show that conservatives are far more charitable with their time and money than liberals.
But, what's one more lie in an ideology constructed of lies.
“Just keep asking yourself: What would Jesus not do?”
I've been hearing that one about "what would Jesus do" for awhile about climate change?
metmike: Some of us actually apply the principles in Jesus parables in the real world, independent of the politics. This includes calling out hypocrisy and lies. Caring for the environment? The left has captured the moral high ground with a big fat lie for political agenda. Jesus tells me to expose it:
Where is the "what would Jesus do" importance when interpreting the liberal laws of abortion?
Ignoring the religion, as a scientist, life begins at conception. Not up for debate, it's a scientific fact. To define human life based on passage thru the birth canal? Hugh?
But Jesus would be for life, especially human life........and you can't pick what life you want to defend under convenient circumstances to fit a political agenda and be for destroying that same life under different circumstances.
I have the best answer of all to this question "What would Jesus do?"
He would act like the person in this story:
My sister, Patti has 10 children, the last 2 were adopted Aids orphans from Kenya. Great story below:
I will assume though, that you are sincere and would really like to do things that would actually help these poor people in Central America which are the focus of national attention right now vs just stating it on a forum.
Actually, I feel confident that you would like to help them and am positive that it would make you feel good if you did. 99.9% of people are not helping them and probably don't even know how they might.
I have a way that you can help them, directly help specific children in Central America, living with a person that I know who is helping dozens of them right now.
Actually, it's one of the sons(not adopted) of the person(my sister) in the story above.
Are you interested?
No need to answer because I will give you some information later this month that you can use or not use if you want to help some children in Guatemala.
If I am not mistaken, Jesus said "obey the law of the land". In his case, it was the law of Rome. In our case, it's the US immigration laws.
Yes, the US has always helped and accepted the poor, the down-trodden, the persecuted... but entry into the US has to be done following a certain protocol.
Go to a US consulate or embassy and fill out visa applications. It's so simple!.
Breaking down fences, breaking into the US under the cover of darkness, throwing rocks at border patrol, using children as human shields, applying for asylum as a 'family unit" with kids that are not your own..... these are all crimes, for which there should be jail time, not "refugee status"
