Is it tit for tat? (s/o of the food stamp question)

Is one only capable of following scriptural teaching if one's religion is made into law? Why is it not possible to feed the poor or be accepting of one's neighbor unless it is also required by law for everyone to follow the rules of Christianity?

I'm trying to understand the logic of "why should we feed the poor when you won't let us force your kids to pray in school"

  • Not feeding the poor because people can't pray in school?

    I don't see a connection there AT ALL.

    It's a mind blowing sentence.

    It's a major plank of the republican party, just not phrased exactly in those words.

  • I'm a Republican... I will feed the poor and be happy to do so regardless of the prayer in school issue.

  • Imo, using Jesus and the Bible when talking about feeding the poor is basically just saying that even the Bible says we should help those less fortunate. In other words, all of us, no matter what our beliefs, should do what we can to look out for those who don't have as much as we do. Arguing that we can't pray or teach Christianity in schools therefore we shouldn't feed the poor is just stupid. As my grandma would say, those people are so dumb their ears rub.

    Anyway... it just goes back to what I always say about many Christians being very surprised about where they actually end up when the die. Many Christians are not very Christ-like at all.

  • Not what was said.
    I said you can not say that the Bible has no place in government (I agree) or in anything connected to the government and then use the Bible to support some program you want in the very government it was said not to belong.
    It either belongs in government or it does not. It can not be both ways.
