Jesus Didn't Preach for Your Pet Purposes
Bill Flax, Forbes
Politicians demonstrate uncanny memories for selected Bible passages trumpeting secular economic platforms. The Left’s emphatic opposition to intermixing church and state rarely precludes recitation of Scripture for progressive causes. Liberals suggest it’s “un-Christian” to deny lavish benefits for illegal immigrants; or, equate socializing medicine with Moses freeing Israel from Egyptian slavery.
President Obama repeatedly references the “least of these” even as he avoids crediting “their Creator” when quoting the Declaration. Obama disdains association with those bitter Bible clingers except to heap guilt upon taxpayers.
