WOULD JESUS ASK FOR MORE TAXES? I believe the Jesus I know would if more taxes was necessary. FOXNEWS miss-speaking for Jesus . Jesus said pay whatever Caesar (Tax collector) ask for. And obey superior authorities. And Christians are law abiders. Does paying more taxes conflict with Jesus words? No. The present economy calls for more taxes. Huckabee believes every American are church goers and should contribute to churches and they would take care of the poor better then unbiased government. Most money given to the church goes into the pockets of Ministers and we all know that. He takes from the poor and gives to himself. People distrust religion more than government. I do not trust my life to churches. Huckabee is assuming that all Americans are Christians and they are not. Other religions may believe in giving more than the 10% tithes. In time of famine, people gave more. More taxes should be asked for when more revenue in needed for government to do the jobs they were set in place to do by GOD. I am not a church goer, but when I need help the Mormons are always there and do not ask of my beliefs. Jesus did not put churches in charge of taking care of the masses. He put government in charge. Rom13;1-7, 1 Cor16;2,3. PS: So he government is sending checks to dead people. Dead people do not cash checks. So what is the problem?
