Wow, they’re accepting the Bible. Hooray. Now if we can get them to reject the Communist Manifesto, then we might be getting somewhere.
This is from The Onion, correct??
Depends on which church you go to.
I've had this argument a thousand times. Jesus taught that YOU are expected to give to your neighbor, not steal from one neighbor to give to someone else. The Bible was written to believers in His church, not to form governments. That is why He even covered how to treat slaves. He knew the governments of men would do what they do, so He wrote how He wanted slaves treated, not that He condoned the ownership of slaves. Christian are to be charitable, but taxes and redistribution is just theft and waste. It's certainly not Godly.
