Do think the TeaOP would recognize Jesus?

If Jesus walked up to them he'd look more like President Obama than any of their heroes. They would cuss him out and mock him. I was raised Catholic went to Catholic Schools. Back then almost all of the Catholics I knew were Democrats I had a really cool nun in 7th grade religion tell me Jesus would surprise lots of artists his skin would be darker and his eyes would almost certainly be brown. It makes much more sense than the rights version of him with blond hair blue eyes

"For everyone to whom much is given, of him shall much be required." -- Luke 12:48 Is this verse in The Conservative Bible?

How about the 25th Chapter of Matthew is that in their Bibles?

Matthew 25:31-46
New International Version (NIV)
The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’

44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’

45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’

46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Ohio is taking help away from desperate families


Tens of thousands of Ohio children are being raised in families that have no cash income. They struggle to survive on a small allotment of food stamps, which can be spent only on food. They have no cash for rent, utilities, clothing, transportation or personal-care products.

And while the situation is tragic, Ohio is making it worse through policies designed to take assistance away from families in need.

Since January 2011, the number of people receiving cash-assistance welfare in Ohio has been reduced by more than 75,000. Of the people who no longer receive benefits, nearly 44,000 are children. This is a reduction of nearly one-third of the state’s caseload, and it is happening at a time when the number of people living in poverty is growing.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that at least 18 percent of all food-stamps recipients in Ohio have no cash income. That is equal to more than 320,000 people.

Most families are not leaving the cash-assistance program because they are doing better financially. Caseloads are decreasing because families are being removed or diverted from the program, contrary to the program’s goals.

Ohio has been threatened with $130 million in sanctions by the Obama administration for failing to meet work-participation-rate targets. Ohio’s response has been to reduce the rolls of cash-assistance recipients by any means possible.

The majority of families being pushed off of assistance in Ohio are facing health problems, a lack of transportation and other significant challenges. In fact, 78 percent of the adults who receive cash assistance do not own a vehicle. And thanks to large cuts in funding, most counties do not provide the financial assistance needed by recipients to get to their work assignments.

Republicans denounce Crist for Obama endorsement on eve of GOP convention



Crist echoed his 2010 general election themes in the op-ed.
“As Republicans gather in Tampa to nominate Mitt Romney, Americans can expect to hear tales of how President Obama has failed to work with their party or turn the economy around. But an element of their party has pitched so far to the extreme right on issues important to women, immigrants, seniors and students that they’ve proven incapable of governing for the people,” Crist wrote.
Crist also addressed his Obama hug in the article.
“Pundits looking to reduce something as big as a statewide election to a single photograph have blamed the result of my 2010 campaign for U.S. Senate on my greeting of President Obama,” Crist wrote. “I didn’t stand with our president because of what it could mean politically; I did it because uniting to recover from the worst financial crisis of our lifetimes was more important than party affiliation. I stood with our nation’s leader because it was right for my state.”

I am a bleeding heart liberal and damn proud of it

We need more bleeding heart liberals

What nobody is saying about Welfare Work Requirements is the pay is less than minimum wage

A person only makes $4.17 an hour and are still treated like lazy bums If you're going to require them to work then you should be required to pay them at least minimum wage
