Obama: Jesus would tax the rich By: Jennifer Epstein February 2, 2012 10:12 AM EST
President Barack Obama tied his proposal to raise taxes on wealthy Americans to his faith on Thursday, telling leaders gathered for the National Prayer Breakfast that Jesus teachings have led him to that conclusion.
The rich pay more not only because I actually think that is going to make economic sense, but for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesuss teaching that for unto whom much is given, much shall be required. Obama said at the Washington Hilton, delivering remarks at an annual event that every president has attended since Dwight D. Eisenhower.
We can all benefit from turning to our creator, listening to him, Obama said. Avoiding phony religiosity . This is especially important right now when were facing some big challenges as a nation.
When I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies arent discriminating against those who are already sick or making sure that unscrupulous lenders arent taking advantage of most vulnerable among us, Obama said, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody, but I also do it because I know far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years. And I believe in Gods command to love thy neighbor as thyself.

There he goes. Lying again.
The whole speech was surreal. Even Muslims believe in personal charity! But it drives me crazy that he can get away with saying Christ meant charity to be distributed by the government! “Render to Caesar” implied no return on the investment, no distribution of Roman funds to care for the sick & poor. I hope someone’s preparing to rip this heresy to shreds, preferably a bishop. (I can dream, can’t I?)
I'm going to puke. This actually makes me ill.
I find myself now disliking the individual that is holding office, not just his actions, words and policy.
He demonstrates to Christians everywhere that he's not one if he doesn't understand what Jesus was talking about here. Tax and Wealth? Holy $hit did he miss the mark.
I feel sick.
Yep.... it's an election year.
Jesus is the Son of God and probably hasn’t much to do with muslim trash like Obozo.
Obozo is of the devil Mohammed who whispers in his misshapen ears at night to give orders that will further destroy this nation.
Apparently liberals read the Bible the same way they read the Constitution: selectively. Just as they always miss that part about the right to bear arms in the latter, they always miss the part about a man not eating if he will not work in the former.
Barry is as conversant with the teachings of Jesus as Mitt is with the teachings of conservatism. The fall election is going to offer such a wonderful choice.
How in the world does Mr. Obama know what Jesus would do...about anything?
Oh, wait, Would Jesus think it’s OK to kill his babies in the womb?
Mr. Obama is willingly screwing every Catholic hospital and clinic in America. Would Jesus be OK with that?
Not bloody likely.
So Jesus threw the tax collectors out of the temple for other reasons??
Jesus has already spoken of this when he said,”render unto Ceasar that which is ceasars, and render unto God what is God’s”
Jesus was about the soul not the wallet!
#2: Who actually cares what a Muslim thinks about Jesus, anyway?
I’ve disliked him as a person since Day 1.
It’s impossible to understand what scripture says without the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
That’s what He meant by “he who as ears to hear”.
Yep - cause Jesus was all about envy and stealing.
No, Jesus would send Obama fishing for a very long! Hey Barry Soetoro what would moham do?
Again, replacing God with Government. God is the one who gives, and the one who expects a “return on His investment” through the loving service and charity of his children, the true believers in Jesus Christ.
Nothing ticks me off more than these “Christians” who use scripture to bolster their liberal ideas, yet they have NO idea what they are talking about. And then their God hating followers run with the meme. .
Satan is alive and well in America today, and one of his favorite hangout spots is the Democrat party!
The stupid phv<k JMHO of course
