Jesus wants more taxes

February 3rd, 2012

Because, as everyone knows, He was all about punishing the successful and productive.

Obama, making his third appearance as president at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, used his remarks to justify many of his actions, such as his call for the wealthy to pay more in taxes and his health care overhaul. He said they were not only economically sound but also rooted in his Christian values.

“When I talk about shared responsibility, it’s because I genuinely believe that in a time when many folks are struggling and at a time when we have enormous deficits, it’s hard for me to ask seniors on a fixed income or young people with student loans or middle-class families who can barely pay the bills to shoulder the burden alone,” Obama said.

“But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that, for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,” he said.

Yeah. Much shall be required. By the government. Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s…which is all of it. But my own belief is: at some point, the government has enough money.

Separation of church and state issues aside, Ogabe needs to make up his mind whether he’s talking about Jesus or Robin Hood. The man’s understanding of and reverence for the Bible and Christian doctrine is every bit as deep as his understanding of and reverence for the Constitution.

No, that is not a compliment.

Steyn nails plastic dashboard bobble-head Jesus to the cross:

On Thursday, President Barack Obama delivered remarks to the National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton and said, “Living by the principle that we are our brother’s keeper, caring for the poor and those in need.”

But according to National Review columnist Mark Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” Obama’s comments leave much to be desired, particularly when it comes to the president’s own brother, George Hussein Onyango Obama who lives on $12 a year in Kenya.

“Oh give me a break,” Steyn said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Thursday night. “For a start, when he says, ‘I am my brother’s keeper,’ his brother is back in Kenya living on $12 a year. That’s what he was living on at the time of the 2008 election. So all the president has to do in terms of shared responsibility is put a $10 bill in an envelope and mail it to Nairobi or Mombasa or wherever and he will double his brother’s salary.”

I seem to remember something about motes and beams in there somewhere, too.

    He is his brother's keeper as he takes our money at the point of a gun? Doesn't sound exactly like christian values there, the difference between him and street mugger is the IRS go-between that is all.

    Someone please inform the President that according to the 1st Amendment, he cannot inflict his religion on me.

    The "Tribute Episode" where Jesus said "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and render unto God what is God's" is often used to justify the paying of taxes.

    That interpretation is incorrect. The correct interpretation is quite the opposite.

    The Pharisees were trying to entrap him with words. But his answer cleverly implies the morally correct answer without actually saying it. That answer would have landed him in hot water with the Roman authorities of the time.

    No one has yet commented on the fact that the "my brother's keeper" line appears nowhere in the Gospels. Its sole appearance in the Bible is in the story of Cain's murder of Abel -- when Cain is asked where Abel might be, he replies "Am I my brother's keeper?"

    Only Barack Hussein Obama would use an evasion by Mankind's first murderer as a moral precept.

    Whenever I need a cathartic moment or two, I come to Cold Fury. Strange there are no cries from the crowd of knee jerk loons whenever a pubbie happens to mention anything that hints of God.

    "My goodness, he wants a theocracy!" *rips clothes and puts ashes on head*

    Wall? There's no wall, silly. We know whenever our guys speaks of God, he's just trying to get votes. We know all will be well when he's elected.
