Were You There When They Crucified The Poor?

the only crucifixion that I'm concerned with is that of Jesus...and in all probability, He was not poor. He was the child of a tradesman, a carpenter (checked on carpenter's rates lately?) His parents made their way for the census and to take care of their tax obligation. He led a group of men, with no visible means of support, preaching religion. He fed a multitude of followers with a few fishes and loaves, HE WAS GOD AND HAD AS MUCH MONEY AS HE WANTED.

Well, I get your point and I sympathize with it, but there's evidence on the other side of that, too. He was born in a cave with a manger for his bed; Mary and Joseph made the offering of the poor at the Temple (two turtledoves); and when He died, His body had to be laid in a donated tomb, evidently no family burial plot available.

So yeah, Jesus was of the humbler class. It's also true, as you say, that He had all the money in the world, and everything in the Universe, being God.

The point OF THIS ARTICLE, though, is that this is a bunch of phony political theatre put together by Obama-led, Soros-funded groups who are opposing Ryan. And Ryan is by no means crucifying ANYbody. He's not even cutting programs, just reducing the rate of funding increases.

Sheesh.
