Jesus was clearly perturbed when shown a coin with Caesar's image on it and asked about taxes. He said 'give unto Caesar , that which is Caesars'. That being said. Maybe we just need to put Baracks' picture on all of our money. It would accomplish 2 things. 1) Christians would gladly pay taxes and 2)some folks would burn the cash they had and lower the money supply
Ignorance! They are not stupid, mean, hateful, or crazy. They are ignorant. The ignorance leads to dependence and dependence leads to hate for anything that reduces what they have become dependent on. What they don't see is that in order to be liberal you have to first see yourself as inferior to others. I can forgive ignorance and some level of dependence however when a human being will accept and support partial birth abortion as a cost of getting what they have become dependent on I consider them garbage!! Yes garbage!! I would cut off my own head before I accepted or supported the stabbing of a partially born human being in the head. But that's just me. Not a religious thing. A human thing.
Talk about ignorance. Conservatism is one school of thought derived from Liberalism. You cannot be conservative without being liberal.
