    So people, who through no fault of their own, become unemployed are worse than unbelievers? That's the message you take from that?

    You must have missed the meaning of the OP. The OP pointed out the hypocrisy of Republicans that CLAIM to be good Christians yet they spit on the poor every chance they get. As I remember, Democrats were not mentioned in the OP at all. However, most Democrats in positions of power CLAIM to be good Christians and spit on the poor too. So both parties are worthless.

    Getting money out of politics is the first step to fixing our broken system. Since both the Republican and Democratic parties are bought off and corrupt we need a new party that doesn't take corporate money/bribes and actually represents the people.

    Jesus died to teach us compassion and generosity? Dying did not teach us compassion and generosity. He preached those things before He died.

    The OP is about the hypocrisy of Republicans who claim to be good Christians? Jesus said give a man a fish and you will feed him for a day, teach him to fish and he can provide for himself for a lifetime.

    Hillary and her corporate sell out cronies are no better than Republicans? I did not like Hillary much but I voted for her simply because I thought she would do less damage than Trump. We did not have good choices this last election.

    Jesus did not say anything about teaching man to fish, that's a typical BS Republican story.

    Lyndon's point was about the hypocrisy of rich Republicans who like to claim they are good Christians yet spit on the poor every chance they get. I find it ironic how Republicans like to cry about prolife but after children are born into impoverished circumstances turn their backs on these children. The pro-life argument is just an smoke screen, they use it to get people riled up about something so they don't see all the crummy underhanded stuff they do.

    Person A (Average American worker with common sense): "I think instituting universal healthcare is the moral and ethical thing to do."

    Person B (Bought off politician): "You sound like one of those dirty liberals, you just want Universal Care so taxes can be used for killing babies!"

    Person C (Insurance/big pharma lobbyist): "Here's your bribe Person B for helping keep our scams for ripping off the American working class afloat, couldn't do it without you!"

    He died forgiving the people who killed him. Supposedly.

    And if the ole' fishin hole is fished dry, then what? Wish them luck? Where's that in the bible?

    Yes. We need to kick both parties to the curb.

    Totally agree.

    Jesus died forgiving the people who killed Him? He did because He preached forgiveness. He did not tear down the rich people's homes and steal their things and give them to the poor.

    If the fishing hole is dry, then what? Maybe it's time to find another fishing hole or switch jobs?

    Where's that in the bible? If you're looking for answers in a 3,000 to 1,600 year old book you're always going to be lost.

    We need to kick both Democratic and Republican parties to the curb? I don't think that is going to happen.

    It's your argument. I'll just assume that if you can't point out the relevant verses they don't exist.

    Maybe you need to Figure out why God calls such things abomination and why God are against those things, to call them abomination.
    which the democrates supports.

    What? This thread is about the hypocrisy of rich Republicans claiming to be Christian but not following his teachings and examples? Try to keep up.

    And if they were living from paycheck to paycheck and don't have money to move to a new city/state? Some of you seem to think there are high paying jobs for everyone, they just have to go get them, like it's so easy. That's not reality.

    I'm not a Christian, I was asking a Christian to reference relevant verses in the bible to back up HIS claims. Are you new to debating?

    You don't think it's going to happen or you don't want it to happen?

    Maybe you need to stick to the topic of the thread or start a new thread if you want to debate something else.

    Are you missing something here.

    If I remember correctly, Jesus took a whip and went into the temple and over turned tables and chase the people out of the temple, for selling animals.

    But according to you Jesus always went about preaching forgiveness, .

    But yet Jesus took a whip to people and over turned tables and chase people out of the temple, it's doesn't sound like forgiveness there, now does it.

    Maybe you can explain this.

    So Jesus condoned the use of violence? The more I learn about Christianity the more horrible it sounds.

    He was fighting the hypocrites in the temple selling stuff in the name of religion to make themselves richer, sounds a lot like many Republicans today!!

    Only none of that is true. Pubs are all about voluntary charity. What they don't like is having the state shake money out of their pockets at gunpoint to fuel social welfare programs that incentivize unemployment and flatly don't actually help anyone.
