True, but not the sins of the impoverished.

no actually many companies make millions by corrupt means

Yeah, like the people who sinfully got laid off, and sinfully tried to find a job anywhere, but sinfully turned up empty handed, and sinfully spent their savings trying to keep their sinful heads above water, and sinking deeper and deeper into filthy, sinful debt. Yeah.
Fuck you. Just say it like it is. You don't wanna help anyone out if it means creaking open your pocketbook.

You're right. Government cannot "cure" a problem that has no objective existence.
3/12/2010 11:46:48 AM
Translation: fundy wants a convenient excuse not to help anyone.

I agree. If I didn't have a SIN the government wouldn't be able to track me to steal my hard earned money for taxes. (jk btw I know taxes are a necessary evil I just wish the gov would put my money to good use rather than 34% pay rises for themselves)
@Name: you win the internet!

So by your logic Donald Trump is an upstanding pillar of morality and virtue. He must be. He's rich!

I would normally tear your argument down without pity, but i have better things to do. Instead, i will tell you that you seem to live in a different world where nothing has anything to do with anything.

Feel the Christian love and compassion for their fellow man.
Oh, and apparently everyone everywhere is dreadfully poor, because we're all sinners, because a guy made from dirt inbred for a few hundred generations after being thrown out of a magical garden because of a rib-woman who ate from a magical tree at the behest of a talking snake.

Didn't some character from some ancient book say something about: "Blessed are the poor?"
And didn't you morons decide that this fictional character from this man-made book was the sonofgod and everyone -- but particularly you lot -- should EMULATE his life and follow his teachings?
Oh, fuck. What am I thinking. You guys actually follow that book about as well as a grizzly bear follows the shop manual for a 1967 Volkswagen.

Next time a homless person asks for help getting on his feet I'll make sure that government officals tell him this.

In three gospels it says: "it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of gawd." And as another mentioned: "Blessed are the poor..etc". Many references that disagree with your assessment. Dont forget, jeebus told you to give everything you have to the poor and follow him. Get out that check book.....
3/12/2010 12:35:48 PM
Um, so when Jesus said to sell everything you own and give the money to the poor, he was telling us to be as sinful as possible?
And when he said "blessed are the poor", and it was almost impossible for a rich person to enter heaven,.. God actually favors sinners?
Wait, so sin is a virtue now?
3/12/2010 12:44:37 PM
Not even pretending to have read that thing any more then?
3/12/2010 12:50:27 PM
Some brothers just won't spare a dime.
Or kindness for that matter.

Eh, she hasn't
said that the poor were the sinners.
Well... even after all those hours spent on this site and many others, witnessing human stupidity in all its cruel, deluded, intolerant, self-centered splendor... I guess I'm still not pessimistic enough for this crapsack world.
3/12/2010 1:09:38 PM
But wait, I thought that money was the root of all evil? Now it turns out that evil is the root of no money.
3/12/2010 1:12:40 PM
Not that Jesus cared.
"The poor will you always have with you, but you will not always have me with you."
Egotistical bastard, especially since in context his disciples actually wanted to help the poor and he was like "lolno"
3/12/2010 1:41:47 PM
Well said, sir! Have an internet.
3/12/2010 1:52:25 PM
Roughly 2,000 years worth of Christian monks and priests who have taken vows of poverty got it wrong?

Random Shadowrunner: You heard the lady, if the System Identification Number didn't exist...
Wait, she's saying sin as in the quality? What the drek is wrong with her?

Percentage Making over $100K/year:
Jehovah's Witnesses: 8%
Evangelical Christians: 13%
National Average: 18%
Percentage Making under $30K/year:
National Average: 31%
Evangelical Christians: 34%
Jehovah's Witnesses: 42%
So I guess the least sinful are Jews and Hindus.
