Obama enacted legislation to help the needy and the poor. ObamaCares!
Pick up a Bible for once in your life.
I can't quite find the biblical passage where Jesus went to Rome to speak to Caesar about creating "CaesarCare" for all the citizens of the Roman Empire.

I don't think Jesus expected Caesar to give out welfare or food stamps. He was more a MAN OF FAITH, than of government.

It always seemed that way to me. I have a hard time understanding how so many "Christians" are so hateful and self-centered.

Sure beats the Reagan's consulting an Astrologer !!
But, having faith in angels isn't that much better.
Obama believes an angel told Mary she would have a baby without having sex.
Romney believes an angel who told Smith about a buried book.
Maybe an angel will appear in the voting booth and tell us all how to vote <LOL>
The good thing about Dems, like Pres Obama, they don't push their faith onto you.

Repubs fight hard against Gov saying we can't have machine guns, but they want gov to have "rape panel" to decide if a woman is "force-able" raped before she can choose NOT to bring the impregnation to term.

No, Jesus didn't expect Ceaser to care for the poor. Jesus did it himself, according to scripture.

A Mormon friend of mine told me:
"We were taught there are three heavens: the Celestial Kingdom, Terrestrial Kingdom, and Telestial Kingdom. The Celestial is the highest, where God and the ones who followed his law reside. The Terrestrial is the middle, where people who followed the Law of Moses reside. The Telestial is the lowest, where the ones who followed carnal law reside.
We were taught that God created multiple worlds and each world has people living on it. We also believe that multiple Gods exist but each has their own universe. We are only subject to our God and if we obtain the highest level of heaven we can become gods ourselves."
to continue my story I then replied to him:

"I don't know...being a God myself is very tempting. But it doesn't beat 72 virgins!"

i then turned to my other friend (a Christian) and said: "ok. what do you got?"

he replied: "An eternal damnation in hell!"

me: " -_- "

Yowzah! You really don't know about the Bible. There's multiple passages about helping the needy and the poor. Did you really not know that? Is your church the Wall Street Stock Exchange?

I have a hard time understanding it too. He was born poor. Raised poor. And died poor.

I don't get where these neo "conservatives" get the idea he was a capitalist.

Religion has convinced people to believe there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the the invisible man has a special list of 10 things he does not what you to do and if you do any of these 10 things he has a special place full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry for ever and ever until the end of time,

but he loves you.

He loves you but he needs money, religion takes in billions of dollars, pays no taxes and always needs more.

They want Jesus to be more like them, and not the other way around.

Tell them that according to scripture, Jesus was more concerned about than his own well being, Jesus was more concerned about feeding his fellow man, Jesus saw each of us a our brothers keeper, Jesus sacrficed himself for others,.....and heads get jammed in the sand.

To the far right, Jesus was like Romney:
- Extremely wealthy
- Extremely White
- Kinda Christian, but good enough
- Thinks those who are not wealthy like him are jealous
- Owned a dancing Jackass worth 70k
- Hid his taxes
- Could care less about those who are poor, because they must be lazy.

Republican Jesus.

Wow. Just wow. bro, if you do not know what you are talking about, then stfu. If your trying to be just a troll, then go troll somewhere else.

I am an atheist. Not ashamed of it either. I (unlike others) do not push atheism on any one. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs and their own religion.

As an atheist am I Marxist, or a Democrat, or a shill for dipshit BO? Nope. Far from it actually. Out of the 1k+ posts on here of me bashing that idiot for his complete absolute stupidity and being controled by bankers, I am surprised Barry Soetoro has not sent people to my house. Also I am a proud contributing member and registered Libertarian Party.

Now I won't get into the atheism part, because your a deluded follower of some form of oraginized religion. I will just leave you with "All national institution of churches appear to me as human inventions established to enslave mankind for power and profit".....Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason.

Of course there are passages about helping the needy and the poor. The word for that is "CHARITY".

When the government does it or when one expects the government to do it, then it is called "WELFARE".

What is the matter with Atheists? Fine, they don't believe in God, why this virulent and angry reaction to someone who does? I just don't get it. What business is it of theirs? I don't care that they don't believe and I don't feel the need to get angry and petty and stage public attacks on them. Seems to me they just want more company in their misery. I mean, if they are so content with non-belief, why bother to harass those who do? Is it just to be as mean and nasty as they can, all to prove that without some belief system people tend to be more vile to others, after all bad behavior has no other consequence than the annoyance of those being harassed. Maybe they should just mind their own business and stop with their only goal, getting all mention of God out of the public domain, and not just government, but out of sight and out of mind. Godless people are, well simply Godless. Think of the novel Lord of the Flies, that is a prime example of how Godless (pick you god or goddess or tree to worship but some belief system generally civilizes people) act.

The God-sent Hurricane will upset Palin's party crashing plans. You know she's mouse hair away from dancing on top of her bus to get the media (which she hates) to pay attention to her.

Religious Fun Facts
Which two are most alike
1 - Romney doesn't drink beer because his God say's its a no-no
2 - Pres. Obama drinks beer
3 - Devout Muslims don't drink beer because their God say's its a no-no
Repugnants, if this quiz is to tough for you to answer correctly, no worries, just stick that head back in the sand and imagine conspiracies.
Joe Biden doesn't drink either. So much for this crack brained theory, about the best a parroting lemming can come up with though.

Jesus was NOT a Socialist.

His feeling about politics was to "give to Caesar the things that are Caesar and to God the things that are God's"

He was A-Political; he was a THEIST.

Wow bro, just wow.

First of all. That accusation regarding atheist is really off base and nowhere even close to being the truth. I am hoping that the sentence was just sarcasm.

And you are 100% correct. Big government and over bearing government does destroy everything it touches. This is why it should be very limited in scope and left to the states and people.
