I’ve never understood some Americans’ visceral disdain for anything vaguely socialist, especially considering many of them are also strongly Christians. How can you be against, say, universal healthcare and at the same strongly support a religion that’s most fundamentally about helping the weak and the poor? The bible says “Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” when talking about taxes, yet American Christian fundamentalists seem to be among those who complain the most about high taxes. I don’t get it.
