Feeding the Poor


Recommended Posts

Interesting but dumb argument against Buddhism by a Christian: A Buddhist who feeds the poor is disobedient to God, because he wasnt feeding the poor for the love of God, but doing it for the poor, so they wouldnt go hungry. A good Christian only works for God. In other words, a Christian may not care about the poor but is enslaved by a religious philosophy to do certain actions. Buddhists and Hari Krishnas, BTW, have better free food! Christians may only give out hotdogs and baked beans! Didnt jesus give out fish and wine?

One of Christianity's basic tenants is to feed the poor and cloth the naked. One person does not make up an entire group. Though I would agree on the notion that the religious right doesnt really care about feeding the poor all that much.

You should feed the poor. Voluntarily pay higher taxes. Contribute to your church. Give the begging bum on the corner money. I do not care about the hungry poor. As far as i am concerned %99 of the hungry poor are hungry poor because of the bad decisions they have made in their lives. If all of the do gooders in the USA would pay .05 cents on the dollar more than they pay now they would feel so much better. Of course there would still be the hungry poor. If all the do gooders in the country gave all of their money to the hungry there would still be wino bums begging for money. Give until you are broke. You will know that you did everything you could. Do not ask me to pay for food for the crackhead, wino, junky, alcoholic BUM. I will feel better knowing i did nothing for the panhandler or the food stamp fraudster.

You sound like the very definition of Compassionate Conservatism. I bet if you seen an injured puppy lying on the sidewalk, you'd stomp his head to put him out of his misery.

I love animals and have two pets. I often think "i wish i was my pet" my pets fed are fed well, see the vet for checkups on a regular basis, and live a pampered life. That is my responsibility and i take it very seriously. It is not my responsibility to take care of junkies, wino's, crack-heads and those who do nothing to better their own situation. Welfare, food stamp, and disability fraud are rampant. I have to pay a certain amount of taxes to pay for that but you can rest assured i have taken great pains to drive my fed tax rate down to next to nothing. My accountant is very happy with the years of work we have done to legally dodge taxes. It is better that you take care of the hungry poor. As i wrote it makes you feel good. My question to you is "Are you doing enough?" Send a little more to oblameo in your fed tax. You will feel good and it will help feed your local BUM.

It's hard to sell the hungry line when so many folks that eat free via foodstamps suffer from obesity... And if I was a kid that went to bed hungry, I'd be blaming it on my parents---not the Government or the tax payers.

Most of the pan-handlers we have here are young drug addicts... They already get foodstamps, so I just ignore the cardboard "Hungry, Please Help" sign.. There are also numerous food banks in the area, so there's no reason they are begging at intersections, other than for money to buy Heroin, Crack and those Oxxy pills... I give to the Salvation Army.

Do you do drugs with them? How many is "most?" How do you know they get food stamps? How much do they get? How many Food Banks do you have, and how many people can they serve a day, and how many people need food served to them each day? And based on what you don't know, you come here and feed a line of BS. lol

Why are the obese? Just because you have a grudge against your parents doesn't mean the poor are not victims of circumstance.

Nope, it is your responsibility if you are an American citizen, but America is full of parasites and cowards who are only here to fk Americans. They are in the same class as the Muzzies who disabled my veterans and left them in poverty in America so you can play tax dodger and tell them to fk off.

 

How much fraud is there in welfare?

How much fraud is there in disability?

How much fraud is there in food stamps?

Here is a link to the Google Search for Palm Beach County Food Bank / Pantries.... There are scores of sources to get a free meal, and some of them will give you a week's worh of groceries when you go there... The young panhandlers here have long been reported on regarding their well orchestrated scams... They work in teams, and are also involved in an array of crimes such as home robberies, dealing in stolen merchandise, fraud, retail theft, squatting etc... It's not my fault you're too stupid to know what a strung-out junkie or crack-head looks like..

 

They are Obese because of a lack of personal responsibility and because of Liberals... Years ago folks on Foodstamps were limited to certain basic items in the Supermarkets which would substain them... They were called "No Frills" items... But Liberals decided this was unfair, and degrading.. So now they pretty much get the same pick as those who actually pay for their own groceries, and are not making healthy choices...As for the kid...There's no reason in the world it should go to bed hungry with all the food banks, reputable charities, food banks available,,,,, Should it be the responsibility for these sources to home deliver and prepare the food as well? I bet you were delighted at the sight of the scumbag unemployed beach bumb out in Cali, that used his Foodstamp Card to buy Lobster & Sushi.

You are as dumb as a rock. I was wounded in Vietnam. I was in combat before most of you liberal dopes were born. I live in the socialist paradise of mass. Here food stamp fraud is rampant. Bums can legally stand on corners and beg. There are thousands of BUMS in this state. The part that gets me the most is when i see a bum with a sign that says "Vietnam vet. Hungry. Please help. God bless you." There are so many social agencies in this state it is laughable that a bum would even take the time to beg. I do the same as the state reps in mass and buy everything in N. H. and dodge the star sales tax. I worked for the feds for 40 years and my pension is non taxable in mass. I get disability for wounds suffered in Vietnam and it is non taxable. I get property tax abatement for disability. I own rental properties and write off taxes on rental income. For many years I have worked hard at not paying for the foolishness of the dems. It is paying off now. I DID BUILD MY BUSINESS. You and the rest of libs should pay more. You will. 10,000 baby boomers like me are retiring every day. 10,000 a day are signing up for medicare. Instead of giving money for the hungry fraudsters and bums send the money to the aged. ME.

MediCare is unsustainable as is and will become rolled up into one national public health insurance system and we won't need to have it anymore. People can pay on a sliding scale according to their means. If you are of high income you will continue to pay, as you should, so we can afford to take care of those who are unable to pay.

It might be a good thing to cook the food for them, and I am sure the disabled vet missing those legs would like it delivered as well. yeah, you sent their jobs to china, and you oppose the living wage and decent benefits, so I guess you prefer they be dependent on you.

You libs will never get it. People like me do not pay and will never pay. You will pay and you will like it. You will be helping people. It is the Christian thing to do. No matter what cockeyed scheme you come up with, no matter how hard you try, you will never get people of means to pay any more than they want to pay. The more you try the more people will move assets to investments or areas that are out of the range of the taxman. Some liberal kook has suggested that tax free municipal bonds be done away with. This would cause investment in hospitals, universities and a myriad of other municiple areas to dry up. Pelosi and wasserman-schultz had offshore accounts at the same time they were chastising Romney for the same thing. The entire tax code of the US would have to be thrown out and done over before the rich and anyone else who cares are taxed at the confiscatory rates the libs want. That is not going to happen. Barter and working under the table are common now. That is caused by taxes. TV has a show on guys who barter for a living. hahahaha.

Poor vet, still mumbling to himself or someone I guess, not sure who he talking to here, maybe Kobia, huh?

Well we can just pay some taxes on a sliding scale, poor man = 0, crotch Bros. = 99% seems fair to me.

by food the bible means spiritual food - the indoctrination that is laid out in the bible

cloth/ing means the armor of faith, a layer of protection against other ideas than those layed out in the bible

that's what they mean to give to the poor, and by poor they mean poor in the knowledge of their shit.

 

the churches that actually run soup kitchens for homeless and stuff like to give christianity a benevolence that it does not have if you consult the bible unbiased
