The Upside Of Conservative Cruelty…

Is there really an upside to the republicans cutting food stamps and trying to make health insurance unaffordable to the average worker? There sure is! It puts the lie to any conservative claim that America is a Christian nation. Christians feed the poor and heal the sick. Early Christians are the first organized communists as well. It is in the very bible the followers of the rabbi Jesus claim to read (but like RICK SANTORUM, never have and never will):

Acts of the Apostles, Chapter 4

32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.

— Hmmm Sounds like redistribution of wealth to me. Was it voluntary? Nope. One couple who held back on their possessions was killed… by GOD.

Next Chapter:

Acts 5 Ananias and Sapphira

5 Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.”

 5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. 6 Then some young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

 7 About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. 8 Peter asked her, “Tell me, is this the price you and Ananias got for the land?”

“Yes,” she said, “that is the price.”

9 Peter said to her, “How could you conspire to test the Spirit of the Lord? Listen! The feet of the men who buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out also.”

 10 At that moment she fell down at his feet and died. Then the young men came in and, finding her dead, carried her out and buried her beside her husband. 11 Great fear seized the whole church and all who heard about these events.

In short, good Christians are communists who believe that people should help others and not have private property. Period. There is no way around this. All the Bloombergs and FOX “news” talking heads cannot argue that one away. Thus America is most decidedly NOT in any way shape or form a Christian nation. So shut the fuck up about it.

    IF you are interested, the current batch of republicans in the House are Dominionists. (ted cruz’s father is a Pentecostal preacher, and his wife is managing director of Goldman Suchs). Domnionism has always been the purview of the wealthy elite in the US, linked to the Oxford group (started the AA movement as a way to use government money to convert people and gather intel) and the Family on C-street (see Jeff Sharlett’s book) You are probably aware of this already , but “Republican Gomorrah” also is an eye-opener of the Dominionist infiltration of our government. Christ Hedges also addresses this in “American Fascist”.

    The wealthiest people in our society are part f this inner circle and they want to convert the world to Jesus by force. This is why you have people writing “Jesus Saves” on missles used to bomb Iraq.

    […] their need, not money-grubbing capitalists who would throw you out of your home for a dollar (see post below if you don’t believe me.) Christians are supposed to love people, not love SHOOTING and BOMBING […]
