Wow, some deep stuff here....
The original sin argument is thick with history but how come no one ever talks about how it alienates us from God, self and neighbor allowing us to bear false witness about things like WMDs, and against our poorer neighbor, and the immigrant, who are all being blamed for our economic problems. There is a deliberate attempt to paint welfare recipients as the real problem yet the amount of money spent on the poor in these programs is a speck of sand on the map compared to corporate welfare.
We should worry a whole lot more that corporations are taking over our destiny than liberals or democrats!
Some interesting links:
Those who favor corporations over their poor neighbor can call themselves a lot of things but they can't square the practice with biblical christianity. Both OT & NT are replete with warnings, admonitions & laws demanding that we take care of the poor. Jesus' whole life was spent doing that (talk about accessible healthcare...people fought just to touch the hem of his tunic!)
More links to describe the domination of corporations we are under and the free ride they are getting:
We are so polarized over these issues but it's time the FACTS got to the masses. The middle class are shouldering the tax burden and the poor are getting left behind [pun intended].
Pray for America to be liberated from the corporate demonic influence that has seized us.
