Blessed Be the Makers of "Tax Cuts"

Religious activists will hold a protest against cutting programs for the poor at the Capitol today. They will stay until they are arrested. But it is liberal, left religious activists concerned for the poor. The Christian Right will be a no show......
Conservative Christian groups such as Focus on the Family say it is a matter of priorities, and their priorities are abortion, same-sex marriage and seating judges who will back their position against those practices.
James Dobson praised "pro family tax cuts" in dealing with poverty while others believe that religious groups are better suited to administer poverty programs than the government by citing the failure of FEMA in respone to hurricane Katrina.

Jim Wallis, editor of the liberal Christian journal Sojourners said conservative religious leaders
"have agreed to support cutting food stamps for poor people if Republicans support them on judicial nominees," he said. "They are trading the lives of poor people for their agenda. They're being, and this is the worst insult, unbiblical."
The right is certainly not going to mess up their agenda or lose their piece of the pie for a few poor people.

UPDATE: They came....

They were arrested.....
