Huffington Post Opines: God Wants Socialism, Not Shutdowns

Over at The Huffington Post, socialist activist Jim Wallis is typically insisting that the Bible’s verses on the poor all underline that socialism is God’s demand in the current shutdown. We’re not individually responsible for the poor, we must be collectively, bureaucratically responsible.

“We’re hearing lots of babble at the Capitol, but across the street, we’re trying to hear the word of God — what God says about the people, families, and children who will suffer the most because of Washington’s babble,” he wrote. Don’t they know God wanted a statist “War on Poverty”?

These words aren’t just directed to churches and charities about what we should do with the poor. They’re about the obligations of kings, rulers, and government to protect the poor…

We plan to give out copies of The Poverty and Justice Bible, which has all 2,000 verses about the poor highlighted in orange, to each Member of Congress and their staff during the shutdown. We want the politicians who assault each other and the nation with their words every day to hear what we Christians call the Word of God, just across the street from their verbal battles…

We’re going to keep sharing God’s message of good news for the poor to help our elected officials rediscover the vision of the “common good.” We invite you to come down and support the Faithful Filibuster. And if you can’t join us in person, tweet one of the 2,000 Bible verses on poverty with the hashtag #FaithfulFilibuster. Let’s remind the politicians and pundits whose babble has dominated, that it is only the Word of God that endures forever. (Isaiah 40:8)
