    They haven’t gone so far as to call for impeachment I think, but NOW they want to separate their spirituality from their politics, or so they say.

    “Give all that you have to the poor.” Not ambiguous at all, but I sure haven’t heard that taken seriously by the Gospel Of Success crowd. All it took for the Pope to be regarded as an irrelevant annoyance by the Republicans was a return to biblical values, instead of the US approach of the last 50 years, where Jesus is taken as a cheerleader for self-reliance and free enterprise.

    The issue is not that there should be income equality – that is but a red herring. The issue is that income disparity in the U.S. is the highest it has ever been and growing. Extreme income disparity is harmful to the nation because it reduces overall demand, creates pockets of extreme poverty, produces social unrest and eventual riots, and deprives the nation of its real potential.

    “….. Conservatives give MUCH MORE to charities of all kinds than you selfish, thuggish liberals.”

    ~ And isn’t it lucky that those contributions are TAX EXEMPT"
    One more thing —-PLEASE look up the definition of ‘liberal.’

    DaSharkie said, “I worked hard to get where I am, from government cheese on up. You know who did it? I did.”

    Do you see the hypocrisy in that statement? It is very revealing.

    “……That provides some insight to the hard-hearted people who want to make sure average Americans have little left to help anyone when they’re through with ’em….
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Good point.

    “…All liberals seem to know how to viciously bash those they cannot abide (or disagree with)…
    ……dismissive language that suggests they have no rational defense for the liberal positions, so they just sling hate
    …..Their comments are trivialized by the petty, personalized and’ hatefully irrational content…
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    PLEASE look up the definition of ‘liberal’

    My, quite vicious here today. A few facts:
    1. Conservatives do not give more to charity than liberals. They give to different charities. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/10/21/study-conservatives-and-liberals-are-equally-charitable-but-they-give-to-different-charities/)
    2. Income inequality is a phenomenon long studied by economists. Research shows that for a culture or country to have a lot of economic mobility — that is, a lot of opportunity for its people — it helps to have less income inequality, because desperately poor people can’t move very far and super rich people have undue control over economics to make sure they stay super rich, even at the expense of others. A strong middle class seems to be related to better economic growth and more potential. The US has moved from a place where all economic growth was shared to a place where the rich gain the vast majority of benefit of economic growth, and gaps are increasing. (http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3629)
    I’m with the Pope on this one.

    News flash, donating to a mega church that looks like a cross between a shopping mall and basketball arena so that another mega church can be built is hardly what any reasonable person would call charity. Yet that is the majority what makes up the donations you keep harping on.

    Thanks Motive! I was just looking up the data when your post popped up. Poverty is a sin, or should be.

    Thanks for shedding light, rather than heat, on the subject.

    “Boy, the FAUX Noise Kool-Aid is flowing here today!”

    Wouldn’t it have been easier & more productive to refute Debt Free’s silly claim?
