Have Republicans hijacked Christianity out of their personal selfish greed? Claiming to be "Christians" representing the "moral good," their goals completely contradict the teachings and works of Jesus Christ.
The policies Republicans endorse are anything but Christian. Jesus healed others. He helped the poor. He respected others. He didn't judge others.
Republicans want to deny the public affordable health care, deny the poor assistance, control women's bodies, judge LGBT people and hoard America's wealth.
Jesus spoke against greed. Republicans are obsessed with wealth at the expense of the poor. They pay less (if any) taxes than most of the middle class while vilifying and attacking the poor. They blame the poor for a contracted economy when in fact they were the cause.
Never miss a local story.
Republicans cut programs for the needy in order to cut taxes for themselves. Most of their social and budget proposals don't touch the wealthy but places the burden on the poor and middle class.
Republicans shut down the government because they refuse to give affordable health care to millions while fiercely opposing any tax increase for the rich and label themselves as victims.
Being a Christian means you follow the teachings of Christ. That entails defending the poor, helping the helpless, accepting those who are different, not judging others and loving one another unconditionally. Whoever fails to do the above fails as a Christian. Republicans fail all the above.
Jesus never mentioned abortion, contraception or homosexuality. These are the only so-called "moral values" Republicans embrace in their agenda to expand their customer base via forced procreation and punishing those who don't procreate.
America isn't suffering "moral decline," America is being corrupted by lying greedy manipulators preying upon those who pray by claiming they're following Christian morality which they obviously aren't.
Republican "values" totally contradict the values of Jesus.
