One of the greatest religious irony's in the world, has to be the fact that, most of Americas Christians vote for republicans. When a republican is the 1,000% opposite of Jesus Christ.
Jesus gave every thing he owned to the poor, and Jesus was all about helping the poor.
But republicans (hate) welfare itself. The republicans are against giving money to the poor.
Huge amounts of Americas people live in poverty,huge numbers of American kids regularly go to bed hungry
Have you ever heard a republican (politician) speak of helping these people ?
Have you ever (once) heard a republican (politician) pray for these people ?
Helping the poor may have been the thing Jesus spoke about most. But the republicans are against helping the poor.
And then the Bible says Jesus healed sick people with miracles (so I guess Jesus felt curing sick people was a good thing)
But the republicans fight to stop the democrats laws that would save 18,000 sick Americans from dieing each year, from not having health insurance.
Jesus healed the sick people around him, but the republicans let them die.
And all of the above republican acts, also go against Jesus' teachings of "love thy nieghbor" and "the good sarmaratan parable" as well.
Then theres the republicans relationship with the rich.
The republicans are (against) tax cuts for the poor and middle class. And they are against helping regular Americans keep their homes in bad times, they are against regular peoples unions and their class action lawsuits, they are against long unenployment benifits. They are against any government program that gives money to the poor and middle class.
But when it comes to Americas rich, the republicans love and charity begins.
Republicans fight for "trickle down economics" and "the supply side formula", this is were the rich have a lower tax rate than the poor. The rich can then use this tax cut money to build factories in China. Like Warren Buffet says, he pays 1/2 the tax rate of his secratary, b/c of the republicans.
Today the republicans want "the fair tax" were the poor pay a (higher) tax rate than the rich. (source: citezens for tax justice.) And they also want to let the rich stop paying taxes on social security and medacare. They also want (no) tax on dividends, so American CEO's have a tax rate of 0%.
Republicans will only direct government money to the rich, and at the (same) time, they take away tax cuts from the poor and middle class, and try to stop welfare.
But as I said a republican is 1,000% the opposite of Jesus.
And If you talk to a avid republican about raising rich Americans tax rates to the same rate as regular people, they will defend the rich, as Jesus defended the poor.
They will get mad and say " thats income redistrabution" , "thats class warfare" , or "what do you have against the rich."
I have heard republicans say many times that "the rich made all the right choices".
But Jesus said "it is eazyer for a camel to pass threw the eye of a needle, than it is for a rich man to get into heavan."
The rich made all the right choices? Not in the eyes of Jesus.
Then there is war, Jesus was against war in (every) way, but the (chicken hawk) republicans (love) to attack countrys like Iraq for nothing.
And while the republicans were attacking Iraq for no reason, the republicans were also talking about attacking Iran.
If the republicans would have had their way, they would have attacked Afganistan, Iraq, and then Iran.
Remember when that soldier cut off that mans ear in Front of Jesus ? Jesus got mad and said "put away your swords." Jesus would never want to attack (3) countrys back to back. But the republicans did.
Some Christian republicans may be thinking that the democrats spending will destroy America. But this is a lie, think about it, Clinton and Carter had surpluses. And as soon as the Christians? GW Bush's tax cuts for the rich expire, Americas deficits will go way down.
Currently the Christian? republicans biggest (care) in debates is speaking (bad) about poor South Americans who come to America. Even though these same Christian, hard workers pick (all) of our food crops."
Do you think Jesus, would stand on street courners like republicans, and yell "go back to Mexico" to the same people who picked his food crops, and cleaned his familys buildings?
Try picking enough oranges to make a gallon of your orange juice, its the same illegal South Americans, that the republicans hate so much, that pick your oranges, cabages, lettuce ex. ex.
But there is (one) Christian thing that Republican (politicians) do, and that is to be against abortion.
But I will show eveidence that this is a political lie. They are only against abortion to get the religous vote.
Look at the following evidence of republican politicians (not) caring about children,
Huge numbers of Americas kids goto bed hungry every night, but the republican politicians (never) even speak of them, or pray for them.
And republicans are against welfare which gets money to Americas poorest kids.
And republicans fight to loosen business regulations, republicans let out more air/ water polution and make huge numbers of children sick.
And when the republicans attacked Iraq for no reason, and killed 1,000's of Iraqs kids.
Did these rep. politicians ever once pray for the dead children of Iraq ?
Name one group of children the republican politicians have ever wanted to help (besides a fetus?)
Do you honestly think these republican politicians care about abortion ?
And people have said that after big time Christians finished talking to GW Bush and left his office, GW Bush and Carl Rove would laugh at them, and call them idiots.
How do the republican politicians get the Christian vote, when they are 1,000% the opposite of Jesus Christ ? Its very easy.
It scares me how easy it is for a republican politician to get the religous vote. All a republican (literally) has to do to get the Christian vote is say "I am for prayer."
Republicans in the presidential debates talk a lot about their faith in God, and how they pray.
The republican party is for prayer ? Its just (not) the same prayers Jesus would say.
Jesus would never pray to, end welfare, not feed hungry American children, make the poor have a (higher) tax rate than the rich, and attack Afganistan, Iraq, and Iran.
Its crazy, scarey, and hard to believe that American Christians consider the republicans to be the party of Jesus Christ.
The trueth is that the democrat party, is the party that most shares the values of Jesus. The (only) thing republicans do that Jesus would do is, to be against abortion, but the republicans are only against abortion, to get the un-educated (lost) Christian vote.
I got the following idea from reading the bible, and hearing others speak. I think the bible kinda says that, Satan rules the world untill revalation comes to pass. So that would mean that Satan curently rules the world.
(sorry for preaching, but I just cant help myself.)
Christians that vote republican, are not following the examples of Jesus Christ.
In a way Fox news and Rush radio are a Christian republicans church, and all of the corporate paid Fox/Rush news reporters and republican politicians are their priests.
These corporate paid republicans teach Christian republicans, all the anti-Christian values of a republican, and at the same time claim to be "for prayer" and followers of Jesus.
But as the bible says, sometimes when the Devil comes to Earth he comes as Jesus.
And today Fox news, Rush radio, and republican politicians have Christian republicans (against) helping the poor and middle class, while defending the rich (as Jesus defended the poor.)
The republicans took these people away from Jesus.
Take the following test. (note: I dont like abortion.)
What would Jesus choose, A. or B. ?
What would Satan choose, A. or B. ?
A. (Democrat) help the poor, give hungry American children food, give Americas poorest children welfare, not start wars for nothing that kill 1,000's of children and 10,000's of inocent people, give tax cuts to the poor and middle class and not just the rich, help regular Americans keep their homes in bad times, have surpluses and not add money to our debt (like Carter and Clinton), save 18,000 Americans from dieing each year from not having health insuarance, raise rich peoples tax rates to the (same) as everyone else (like W. Buffet wants), love our South American brothers and sisters, provide aid to this worlds sick and needy people, walk into the world with love, caring, and respect as Jesus would, allow women to choose what grows inside them, and a few human fetuses to be killed.
B. (Republican) Not help the poor, end welfare for poor people, not feed Americas hungry children, start wars for nothing that kill 1,000's of children and 10,000's of inocent people, have tax cuts only for the rich, increase our deficits like GW Bush and Reagan and add money to our debt, let 18,000 American die each year from not having health insurance, kick all the South Americans out of the USA, be against long unenployment benifits, honor the rich more than children or the poor, fight to stop all foriegn aid, not care about regular Americans loosing their homes, stop the poors class action lawsuits and unions, And save a few fetuses, to make uneducated (lost) Christians vote republican.
May the (spirit) of Jesus grab some of you, and make you do to the republicans, as Jesus would do to them.
Jesus was outside of a church and he got mad and flipped over a table.
If Jesus was here today he would "flip the republicans table."
But as your bible says " Satan rules the world untill revalation."
(I just wish a few of you, would sneak away and vote democrat.)
