Republicans: Claim Christianity, Hate the Poor.

I don’t really get what’s going on in the minds of US Republicans. They claim to be Christians, fight tooth and nail to prevent homosexuals marrying and women having abortions, and often think that the Earth was created 6000 years ago.

Yet they really hate the poor. Really really hate them.

 This was in response to my comment that right wingers want the poor to suffer. That’s nothing compared to the following charmer…

That’s right! ‘Scripture says that if you do not work, you do not eat’! It also says, in Matthew 6:26

“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”

but point that out to a cowboy hat wearing Conservitard and you get this reaction

Yeeehaw!!! Yeah! FUCK THE POOR!!

I guess they think that Jesus would have told the needy to get to fuck if they’d asked him for help. They probably fantasise about a Christ who told the poor to help themselves, before hopping back in his gas guzzling pick-up, complete with Gun Rack.

This is probably what they imagine their saviour doing if a stinking poor person asks for help

Republicans are, a lot of the time, disgusting hypocrites, loving Christianity for it’s ability to control the masses, whilst telling the rest of us what to do.

  1. They care about a child right up until its born. Then it needs to fend for itself. Hal
