    Sorry bout that,


    1. Was he *Just*?He was *NOT* just, he had no right to take from anyone in the first place.
    2. Is it fair, or just, to steal from those who have much, and hand it out to the poor?It is, *Not Fair* if those whom have much are willing to give to the poor, then thats fine, otherwise, its injustice.
    3. Should the poor be willing to receive stolen goods or money?Absolutely not, the poor should know that ill gotten gains are worthless, and should be refused, taking stolen things full well knowing they are stolen, is a sin, and it corrupted, better to have nothing than to receive stolen goods.
    4. Should a poor person feel fine, knowing that the things they receive are indeed stolen from some other person who had worked for them and had acquired them legally?No they should have integrity, and never receive stolen goods, or money, if its obtained through theft, its *stolen goods*, and not right to obtain and use.
    5. Do poor people have a human right to goods or money, if they haven't done whats right to gain them?Yes they have human rights, but not a right to others goods, or monies, they can ask for it, but its not in their rights to demand it.
    6. Do politicians break *The natural Law*, by over taxing rich people, to supply the needs of the poor? Its quite possible this happens, the rich are heavy burdened, what part of their American Dream, doesn't belong to them? Really?
    7. Is it up to the rich to deliver the goods or monies to the government, in order for the poor to be supplied every need?I think that other organizations can and do a better job than the government on helping the poor, perhaps those groups should be collecting the taxes, to better supply for the poor and needy.
    8. All these questions shall be answered right here on *USMB*! by none other than, *CWN*!!!

    From the Sermon on the Mount....

    "And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away."

    Robin Hood robbed the King's tax collectors and returned the money to the people who had to pay the taxes.

    Today he'd be a republican.

    I missed the part where Jesus said "If a man do not giveth up his cloak, the King shall take it from him and distribute it to the King's favored."
