Skip to comments.Obama live speech:"Jesus would raise taxes on 'the rich'"
Posted on 02/02/2012 6:45:51 AM PST by sickoflibs
Obama just said in a live speech (9:18 AM EST) at a Prayer Breakfast that he wants to raise taxes on the rich because his Christian values tell him to personally give more to those less fortunate by raising his own taxes, just as Jesus would do. Not kidding.... now he just called federal welfare 'charity'... and just accused those of opposing tax increases as 'not having Jesus love of others in their hearts'
Did Jesus really ask the Romans to raise taxes on the Jews and Samaritans to pay for the fish, bread and wine for the early Christians for economic fairness?? I read the Bible a few times but missed that part, "The Book of Krugman" ?
Obama is a total idiot. Thre is NOTHING stopping the rich from giving to the government....except they know it’s the worst “investment” they could make. Better to invest in the people...either by making jobs, charitable contributions or buying goods.
Laugh of the day ping, sort of...
does this make Obama “Ceasar”?
this was asked and answered 2000 or so years ago...LITERALLY!

Jesus made his own fish, bread and wine....IIRC.
Warrent buffet “gets that”. That is why he set up his own charity.
I keep most of the program on low volume.
I only turned it up to hear Jackie Evancho sing..
And I wasn’t disappointed...
keep = kept
You mean they’re ‘heartless’ AAA-hole?
Jesus wouldn’t have elected you for dog catcher.
Obama is a blasphemer. But then I repeat myself. Hussein is a Muslim!
Obama must have taken that “messiah” thing seriously.
Next thing we will hear is that Jesus was an “occupier”.
ROTFL! Obama, re-writing the Bible.
Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
Are you sure he didn't get the money from the Roman tax collectors like Obama says? Are you calling Obama a liar? :)
Yet when God (Jesus) imposed a census tax on the Jews in the desert he specifically said it would be the exact same for the rich and the poor - one half sheckle. Futher the rate of the tithe was the same for the rich and the poor: 10%. Finally, when discussing the duties of judges he maintained that the poor should not be favored over the rich because of their poverty nor should the rich be favored because of their wealth. Obama just proves he’s never read the bible every time he addresses the subject.
Render unto Solyndra that which is Solyndra’s.
Render unto Government Motors that which is Government Motors’.
Jesus was a flat taxer. Everybody pays ten percent.

"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

Jesus would have been a flat-taxer. God’s OT laws taxed the Israelites 10% for the care of the widows and orphans. Doesn’t mention unwed mothers or slackers. LOL
I’m sure that the Jesus 0bama follows would not only raise taxes on the rich, but would see a baby as punishment, and allow guns to freely get into the hands of Mexican drug lords. Of course 0bama does not follow the Jesus of the Bible, 0bama follows a different Jesus, a Jesus made up out of whole cloth, the Jesus 0bama follows is from the spirit of the Anti-Christ.
The man is a broken record, a blaspheming broken record.
