The God Politicians

Several of the politicians aspiring for the presidency in 2012 are overflowing with praise
for God and Jesus in their campaign speeches.

They are holding prayer rallys, and invoking Gods name for just about everything.

But there is a serious flaw in their approach.

The Jesus they profess to love, said, "heal the sick, freely you have been given, now
freely give".

The Jesus they profess to love said, sell your possessions and give the money to the poor.

The Jesus they profess to love said it would be harder for a rich person to get into heaven
then for a camel to go through the eye of a needle.

And yet, these same Bible thumping politicians are only concerned about possibly taxing
the rich and large corporations.

And so here they are praising God and Jesus and extolling the virtues of putting
financial pressure on the elderly, the poor, and the sick.

The same Jesus said, they honor me with their lips but their hearts are far from me.
