(Conservative) Christians are waging a war on the poor and it is absolutely disgusting
Today is the day in which you will see a bunch of Christians and Catholics go to a church and pretend to care about everyone.
That’s because tomorrow, these Christians and Catholics will go right back to their evil, wicked ways in waging a war on the poor – literally.
The Christian War on the Poor has been around longer than the so-called Moral Majority movement by roughly three years, and this War on the Poor got started with the Hyde Amendment.
Then came the Helms Amendment in the 1990s.
And now, after being dormant for over a decade, the Christian the War on the Poor has taken a nasty turn for the worse.
It all began in 2011 when the immoral Congress decided it was a good idea to micromanage what welfare recipients, the only group of people in America who actually spends their money wisely, do with their money. They illegally and unconstitutionally infringed on the rights of welfare recipients by barring them from using their federal benefits – benefits they actually EARNED – at adult establishments.
Now, the monsters in the Kansas state legislature has decided to copycat Capitol Hill and apply this ban to the state benefits welfare recipients in the Sunflower State actually EARNED themselves by paying taxes on items they purchase – and that’s not all on their end.
They are also banning said people from using the benefits to fish for their food by banning them from using boats to do so.
And in Missouri, it’s actually worse.
In Jefferson City, the ALEC legislators who call themselves proud Christians are actually criminalizing the sale of essential foods loaded with protein, because of Fox News – the main purveyors of the War on the Poor at the present time.
This is the kind of shit that caused me to leave the Christian faith and convert into the Nudist and Pagan faiths.
There are far too many people who call themselves Christians in this country who are comfortable with the government infringing on the rights of the poorest and most vulnerable Americans, while doing or saying nothing at all about the corporate tax cheats, the rampant fraud that is being committed by tax cut recipients, and the more than $50,000,000,000,000.00 that is stashed in offshore tax havens in the Cayman Islands.
There are far too many people who read the Bible, but never do with the Bible actually says when it comes to the economic poor in this nation.
James 2:2-6 has this quote in the New Testament, the current Bible used in most Christian churches: “Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in shabby clothes also comes in. If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, ‘Here’s a good seat for you,’ but say to the poor man, ‘You stand there’ or ‘Sit on the floor by my feet,’ have you not discriminated among yourselves and becomes judges with evil thoughts? Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom He promised those who love Him? But you have insulted the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court?”
Ezekiel 22:29 has this quote: “The people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy and mistreat the alien, denying them justice.”
Judging from the Bible, the Christian politicians in this nation are oppressors and judges with evil thoughts. They have extorted the American people for way too long and they robbed from the poor and middle class people. They have denied justice to those who need it for far too long.
They think no one will call them out on their actions. Wrong.
I am doing so right now, and I will continue to do so.
The simple fact and the matter is this: what the Christians in power are doing to the poor and least fortunate in this country is sickening, it’s revolting, it’s reprehensible, it’s repulsive.
And most importantly, the fact that Christians – the oh-so-loving religion – are refusing to condemn the attacks on welfare recipients and the poor is just so disgusting at the core.
This is one of a lot of reasons why I am an ex-Christian.
