Tony Perkins is the head of the Family Research Council (FRC), a Christian organization that says its mission is to “advance faith, family and freedom in public policy and the culture from a Christian worldview.” Mr. Perkins said recently “as Christians we will be held responsible for the policies adopted by this government because it (the government) is us,” Perkins continued by saying that Christians shouldn’t see the government as a way to help the poor: “The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says.”
So, conservatives seem to work this way. When it benefits their viewpoint they quote scripture, but not the Constitution and vice-versa. These same ideologues ignore the expressed role of government stated by the Founding Fathers to “promote the general welfare.” See, the Constitution uses the word welfare, it is mentioned there!
Do you hear any of these assholes mentioning that?
Do you hear any of them mentioning “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s?” Or their Saint Paul’s admonishment to obey the government in all things secular and to be good citizens?
Their conservative motive is they don’t want to pay taxes to support the poor. In other words, they worship Mammon.
Could it be that Christianity is just a tool for these conservative hatemongers? Just maybe?
