Rest in Power, Tom Foley

May you find peace in the next world

Aren't these the same people who keep claiming that our government should be a theocracy?

Family Research Council: Christians should not want the government to care for the poor
“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says"

BY KATIE MCDONOUGH

The Family Research Council has some interesting ideas about Christianity and poverty.

Last month, FRC Senior Fellow Kenneth Blackwell said there was “nothing more Christian” than kicking 4 million people off food stamps, and FRC head Tony Perkins echoed his colleague’s uncharitable sentiment this week by arguing that the government has no responsibility to care for the poor.

As Right Wing Watch reports, Perkins believes that even though “as Christians we will be held responsible for the policies adopted by this government because it’s us,” Christians shouldn’t want the government to help poor people.

“The government has a responsibility to care for the poor? That’s not what Scripture says,” according to Perkins.

So God hates poor people now, no matter what?

It takes an exceptional brand of moronic thinking to make a right wing Republican these days...

GOP lawmaker voted against debt deal because he thought it funded Joseph Kony

Spoiler: He was wrong!

BY KATIE MCDONOUGH

Republican Rep. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina voted against the debt deal Wednesday night for a great many reasons, and one of those reasons is that he thought that the bipartisan legislation to reopen the government included funding for the Lord’s Resistance Army, a Ugandan militant group led by exiled war criminal Joseph Kony.

This is not true. But that didn’t stop Mulvaney from including it in his statement denouncing the deal!

“Finally, the ‘deal’ is full of pork,” Mulvaney said. “A dam project in Kentucky got extra money; the state of Colorado got money to help with its flooding; and the ‘Lord’s Resistance Army’ received special funds. Those may be worth discussing, but that will never happen now, as they were crammed into this ‘deal’ in order to help it pass. So much for the ‘clean’ bill that my Democrat colleagues said they wanted so badly.”

As noted by the Huffington Post, the money in the deal will actually fund the Pentagon’s efforts to support African forces currently conducting a manhunt for Kony.

Democratic Underground stands behind President Obama in his fight against the Republican Shutdown

We also stand with Democrats in Congress, as they stand with the President.

Solidarity!

I would love an endorsement of the President and the Democrats by other DU members.

Show your love!

Hey everybody, let's each dedicate a song to Republicans
