As a Christian, of course I believe that we should care for our brother. We are NOT, however, his keeper.

In scripture, we encounter moral obligations to do something for the poor.

The modern scenario, though, involves the question as to whether the State has the right to extract the fruits of our labor at gun point, in order to "redistribute" it. My viewpoint is that I will (and have) taken care of relatives, friends, and random strangers, but I only want to do it according to MY will, not the State's.

Charity extracted at gunpoint is robbery.

That is EXACTLY right. Congratulations. You GET it.

So many either won’t or can’t.
