Rep. McDermott: Jesus ´Didn´t
Charge Food Stamps´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/2/2013 3:05:12 PM

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next

Comments:
You can always tell when a Democrat´s in trouble when he invokes the name of Jesus! This instance, McDermott doesn´t even make any sense ... he must use Obama´s writers.

of course he is only partly correct, Jesus feeding the masses was a miracle, not a government program. Now, if all the rich democrats in congress wanted to feed the hungry, and spent until it hurt, and/or depleted their personal fortunes and campaign coffers, I´m all for it.

Stinking democrat. He also didn´t take other peoples money to pay for it and He had more left over after He fed the 5000 which I´m sure He returned, with interest, to the original owner.

Jesus took the handful of loaves and fishes and multiplied it so that it could feed 5000.

The Federal Government takes enough money to feed 5000 from taxpayers and ends up with about 5 loaves and 2 fish to show for it.

Big difference there, Jimmy.

Just give me some food and don´t ask any pesky questions about money because Jesus didn´t ask anybody whether they could afford fish or not. Just give the whole country food and health care (not insurance) and education and a house, don´t forget the house. Oh, and a nice cellphone, plasma TV, computer w/internet, and a bunch of other stuff I can´t think of at the moment. Isn´t that what Jesus (Democrat version) would have done?

The preceding was sarcasm; McDermott´s statement was idiocy.

It´s hard to believe that anyone, even a Democrat, could be this confused. McDermott is breaking new ground here.

Among the problems:

1. It is a Straw Man argument that anyone wants Americans truly in need and hungry to starve. That is not the point at all. The issue has to do with the identification and efficient relief of the truly needy. The idea is not to waste precious resources and to enable unhealthy behavior.

2. Jesus Christ was a private citizen, not a government official. Many people believe He is the Son of God.

3. The miracle of the loaves and fishes was a miracle. It was not at taxpayer expense. Nobody had to pay for it.

4. It was a one time event, a special occasion, not an ongoing program.

5. Since McDermott seems to gave gotten religion, he should consider following the advice Jesus gave to the young man who asked him what to do in order to become perfect: sell everything he has, give it to the poor, and follow Him.

Most Democrats these days seem to be sanctimonious, hypocritical, holier-than-thou blowhards. But some are more annoying than others. McDermott is in a class by himself. The people who keep electing him must be a prize bunch.

Scripture is so often taken out of context.

It teaches if "you are unwilling to work, you shall not eat." [II Thes. 3:10] The Apostle Paul was a tent-maker.

The loaves and fishes were freely given and Jesus blessed them so they would spread to feed the gathered people. The same thing happens with charitable food banks. Jesus didn´t suggest that Ceasar create a tax and a new food stamp program.

If you follow the link to the full CNS article here:

McDermott says Republicans should be required to go to food banks, and says they would find: "these are not people who are not trying. They´re not people who are taking from the public. They´re not people who want to be there. They´re people who are ashamed in many instances to be doing something they never thought they’d be brought to, and they´re having difficulty,"

Well, he´s partially right. Under the Obama administration there certainly ARE people at food banks and soup kitchens who never thought they´d be there, and they ARE ashamed, and they HAVE no other recourse because Obama has shrunk the job market while refusing to deport the illegals who take jobs away from American citizens. But these are only the recent users of the services. They are standing in line with the OTHER users of the services, the long term users.

It is the long term patrons of the food banks and soup kitchens that are the issue. During times of full employment they never worked. Some of them are middle aged and have never worked. Ever. For them, food pantries have not been short term assistance during times of struggle, but a permanent source of free food, similar to their source of free housing, clothing, cell phones, cable TV, and all the other free stuff they get. I´ve seen the same faces there for over 10 years. Eventually one runs out of pity and begins to feel like a sucker.

Just to set the record straight, Jesus never taught that people should be tau ght to fish rather than given fish. It is a Chinese proverb.

The loaves and fishes were what the disciples managed to gather which they gave to Jesus voluntarily which Jesus as God multiplied because God can do all things. The democrats would have us worship at the pedestal of the ever powerful godlike State and submit to it or face its wrath. If the corruption seen with all the Obama scandals is typical of this kind of socialist Utopia then give me a banana republic any day over Obama´s & McDermott´sversion of govenment.

Yes, McDermott. And when the same people tried to persuade Jesus to stay with them instead of moving on to the next town, He refused, dismissing their interest as simple desire for more free food, rather than for the faith He had come to give. But if you take the Gospel out of context, you can twist it to suit almost any agenda.

Jesus calls us to share some of our food with those who have none. Evaluating whether they deserve it is not part of our call. But Jesus calls ALL of us to submit in service to each other, and that implies those seeking food should be offering whatever service they can perform in exchange. (The complication comes from each person being called to submit and serve, with each of us having the responsibility - and authority - over our own submission.)

Governmental welfare is what compassion looks like, only in a world illustrated by Salvador Dali.

Jesus didn´t have to deal with the US gov or Zippy.

If the unemployed or underemployed had decent paying jobs, they wouldn´t need food assistance. If the elderly had SS checks to match the inflation rate, they wouldn´t need help. If the deadbeats and breeders got off their bums and looked for a job, they wouldn´t be bleeding the system dry.

Do not confuse the poor with the entitled.
I see some of this up close and the greed is unbelievable. Those that don´t really need food are running from place to place collecting while food banks are depleted.

When discussing the thoughtcrime prosecution and ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich last night, I quoted a passage from a First Things article which appeared to assert that Eich´s donation to the campaign for the Prop 8 gay marriage ban in California in 2008 - the sole reason he was hounded out of his job by a fascist mob - was made public when corrupt agents of the Internal Revenue Service leaked the donor list for the National Organization for Marriage to a gay-rights group. In an update to the post, I mentioned that I had quickly grown doubtful of

John Edwards — who quit his presidential campaign in disgrace when he was caught cheating on his wife — was barred from Bunny Mellon’s funeral by her family. The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn. When the former politician and his daughter Cate Edwards, who is also his law partner, arrived Friday at Mellon’s funeral at the Trinity Episcopal

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

A major newspaper in Spain has published an exclusive claiming that sources within the search effort to find missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are considering the possibility that the plane was shot down by military forces in order to prevent a terror attack and the government giving the order has yet to divulge its involvement. The report surfaced online this weekend, titled "Intelligence Sources Weigh Whether Malaysian Plane Was Derailed To Prevent New 9/11." It suggests that the plane did not fall into the southwestern Indian Ocean, as investigators have insisted for more than a week after definitively concluding that

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
