Quote"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke,to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
Quote from: Blackleaf on September 19, 2022, 12:37:32 PMOn Reddit, I saw a proposition to start referring to Republicans as "CINOs." Otherwise known as, "Christians in Name Only." While they certainly have the Old Testament cruelty, hypocrisy, and ignorance about how the world works down to a T, their values are almost completely opposite to the things Jesus said to be important. The religion has gone from hating the rich to worshipping them. They went from selling their possessions and giving it to the poor to demonizing the poor for being "lazy" or having "too many kids." Jesus cast out from the temple people who were there to make profit. Churches today have gift shops, coffee shops, and they are in every sense of the word businesses, in it for profit. Jesus was a pacifist. Republicans love guns and killing foreigners, and stand up for police when they abuse their power. Jesus told the tale of the Good Samaritan, saying that we should help strangers, with no expectation of a reward or to be paid back. One of Republican's greatest fear is brown refugees displaced by war (which we helped stir up) coming to America for help.Not to mention, they white-washed Jesus. They wouldn't even recognize him if he did come back. They'd accuse him of being the Anti-Christ, and I suspect the vitriol would be mutual.
