The Christian Right is neither

The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. The greatest trick the GOP ever pulled was convincing the working class they had their best interests in mind and then using those same people to become their foot soldiers, an army of "useful idiots". The shock troopers, the true believers,also known as the religious right, not only fight their personal interests but also violate the very teachings of Christ himself by doing so.

Jesus specifically supported things that these same people oppose. Ideas like taxes "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar", personal wealth "You cannot serve both God and money" and military retaliation "turn the other cheek". It is all too obvious that the Christian Right is neither. If they wanted to really be right, and Christian, they
would continue to do things like oppose abortion but at the same time work for social change and equality.
You cannot say you believe abortion is wrong, then not be equally outraged when both civilians and soldiers
are killed in our military campaigns. You cannot call yourself a Christian and be greedy. You cannot call yourself a Christian and think it is ok to trample on the rights of others just because they are different from you.You cannot ignore the plight of the poor because some politicians and their lobbyist buddies have convinced you that they are lazy and don't want anything better for themselves.

So, members of the religious right, if you want to shirk your taxes, cast judgement on others while ignoring your own flaws, hate people who aredifferent from you and just be an overall hypocrite, then by all means go ahead. Just don't call yourself a "Christian", I believe there is a specific Commandment which forbids lying. Unless of course, you were cherry-picking the Bible to justify your own greed and overall nasty behavior, which is what you were probably doing all along, you brood of vipers.
