    They are quick to run, jump and skip to "defend" the unborn and squeel about life and killing innocents and yet they don't want a red dime spent on feeding a poor, disenfranchised child. They are quick to run and support death penalty, they are quicker to run and support a war...any war, just point them in the direction of a war and they will swear that they are ready and willing to run in naked into it to defend their God-given country.

    This article encapsulates their hypocrisy perfectly...

    Christian Hypocrisy From the Religious Right - Leslie Marshall (usnews.com)

    Will the religious, self-proclaimed Christian right EVER stop their hypocrisy? Why don't you self-proclaimed Conservatives on USMB speak out against such blatantly hypocrisy on your side?

    Meanwhile the President lies about Congress openly foments anarchy and rebellion in the streets, all the while supported by people like this poster.

    I believed you overstated your cause here. I have no study, but I would guess that all of people on the right don't begrudge those who really need help in our society. And what's more, I do believe there are as many hypocrites on the left as there on the right.

    We mustn't be so biased that we paint an entire group of people with the same brush.

    Sorry, but I have to adamantly reject your claims here. 1. Far too many people on the Right are deeply hypocritical on this matter. 2. Far too few denounce it. In fact, I'm not sure I ever see or hear of any who do.

    It's the Bush syndrome all over again. Fully in lock-step with him, until after the damage was done. Then all of a sudden...you were never with him. Yet, you still defend him.

    Actually, We do feed the poor and take care of them.

    I repeat We do it. We don't expect someone else to do it. We dont outsource our responsibilities to the government or try to rob people of their livelihood so others can be feed. We feed them ourselves.

    And we always will.

    People really need to stop lying about government being the only way to help people.

    As the article states, the churches are turning people away and telling them to go to shelters.

    Then Churches need to start repenting and returning to God.

    I dont see how that reflects conservatives, because there are liberal churches as well.

    How comes there's no such thing as a Liberal Christian Right that is a political juggernaut then?

    All jokes aside. Can you be serious for a moment? We all know there are many Christians on the left, but they are no way as much and as many as the political juggernaut...The Religious Right. Feel free to continue playing pretend now.
