At HuffPo there is a stunningly dopey headline over a stunningly dopier opinion piece by someone named Larry Atkins, whom I don’t recall ever having heard of before.
Why Would a Christian Want to Be a Republican, in Light of Pope Francis?
Here is the essential argument.
Pope Francis is for “the poor”.
President Obama is for “the poor”.
Republicans, I am not making this up, “frequently mock and hold in contempt the poor.”
We should have even bigger government, which means that – in the name of Pope Francis himself! – you should be a Democrat or you are a bad Christian and, obviously, a bad person.
You have to read that piece.
This is another example of what I wrote about, HERE.
Never mind the official Democrat promotion of abortion (the writer claims the Bible is silent on that, btw)….
Some people think that free-markets and entrepreneurship will help “the poor” more efficiently, more quickly, and in a way that protects and fosters their human dignity. Others think that money should be redistributed, in “fairness”, through the agency of a vast government bureaucracy.
