Rangel Uses God For Political Gain

Rangel makes fiscal responsibility a moral argument.

He asked, “What Would Jesus Do?

, written by Jeannie DeAngelis of Big Government is sophisticated and informed.  She puts it in very clear terms that Rangel is simply using God for political gain.  She throws the idea of Democrats funding abortion and not paying their taxes, right back in Rangel’s face.  Arguing against this tripe is simple, and Jeannie soundly rebukes Rangel.

In :

“What would Jesus do this weekend? Or Moses. Or Allah. Or anyone else,” the New York congressman said at a press conference on Capitol Hill. “I don’t want this book (debt negotiations) closed without the clergy having an opportunity to forcefully express themselves as well as I know they can do.”

“I have not heard from those people who have been called by God to protect the poor. I haven’t heard them,” he said. “The issues that are going to be discussed this weekend involve spiritual, moral issues.”

And Rangel’s plea to the poor and helpless? Call your religious leaders and ask, “what is Medicare all about? What is Medicaid all about? Why do we have taxes?'”

Jesus Christ would have asked that we offer our help to the least, the poor, the elderly.

What He would not do is use coercion through government, under penalty of fines or imprisonment to do the same.

Fiscal responsibility is a moral argument, however, Rangel uses the victim’s approach. What is immoral is having morally repugnant leaders in DC determining how we are to care for the poor and elderly.

Those religious leaders that Rangel calls on should stand up and say, “We take care of our poor, and our elderly, but the ranks of the poor and elderly get larger every time lawmakers try to make things equal.”
