Matty the atheist bitterly clinging to religious beliefs of pols discussing why they decide to take billions in federal aid...
Kasich is sincere, I repect what he is saying. However, and it doesnt sound like he is claiming the Bible mandates the omnipotent federal government must spend 89 bazillion dollars for the inefficient fraud-riddled Medicaid program, not 88 bazilion. Nor is he saying that Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, a Catholic as well, is going to hell for not agreeing to surrender state sovereinty to administer the unpopular massive federal government takeover of private heath care , known as ObamaCare.
I do know for sure, if Kasich cited to his religion to explain his pro-life views, he would have been rudely mocked and libs would have lectured us on "separation of church and state"....
The thing is, no where in the gospel does it say government should take care of the hungry, the poor, the downtrodden. It says we, individuals, are responsible for that work.
So, by all means, let's separate church and state. First up: end all social programs and turn them back over to the people.
The people have chosen the government to help those that cannot help themselves through social programs. It's been going on since the mid 1800s. Where have you been?
And have you ever heard of the social gospel? Our reform movements have often been rooted in the religious conviction that we should act COLLECTIVELY to improve the lot of the downtrodden.
You don't know compassion, it is alien to your mindset. Odd that you call yourself a Christian...
The social gospel, liberation theology, and the like is socialist nonsense with a cross. Don't fall for it. It is a pack of commie lies. Read up off some of the work of Father Torres.
my observation stands. The gospel NEVER indicates that government is responsible for feeding and clothing the poor. Tough it clearly indicates that we as individuals are responsible. Read Matthew 25. It will open your eyes, hopefully your mind and heart as well.
nice that you got the anti Christian jab in at the end. But, I know I will be persecuted by people like you for following Jesus. Jesus said as much. Read Matthew 5.
