Response to Tennessee Gal (Original post)

Thu Sep 27, 2012, 05:08 AM

118. It has occurred to me that should I get the chance it might be effective

to point out to her and others like her that economic policies also have religious implications similar to those of abortion in that our faith would support every American having the opportunity to improve their lot in life. This can only happen when the poor are not being oppressed by tax policies that shift wealth to those who are already quite well off financially. Yes, that could be called redistribution, but that has been going on for years to the advantage of the wealthy and is the reason for the growing wealth gap. So, trying to put Obama's fiscal policies down as "class warfare" does not work for those who fully understand that "class warfare" in favor of the wealthy has existed for many years in Republican tax policies. My faith tells me that if she believes being pro-choice is wrong by her faith standards, oppressive tax policies should also be considered wrong by faith standards and must be corrected.
