Ann Coulter on charity

Who gives the most to charity? Who volunteers most? Ann has the answers.

Ann Coulter:
Scrooge Was a Liberal

It's the Christmas season, so godless liberals are citing the Bible to demand the redistribution of income by government force. Didn't Jesus say, "Blessed are the Health and Human Services bureaucrats, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven"?

Liberals are always indignantly accusing conservatives of claiming God is on our side. What we actually say is: We're on God's side, particularly when liberals are demanding God's banishment from the public schools, abortion on demand, and taxpayer money being spent on Jesus submerged in a jar of urine and pictures of the Virgin Mary covered with pornographic photos.

But for liberals like Al Franken, it's beyond dispute that Jesus would support extending federal unemployment insurance.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Bible, but it does nicely illustrate Shakespeare's point that the "devil can cite Scripture for his purpose."

What the Bible says about giving to the poor is: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians (9:7)

Being forced to pay taxes under penalty of prison is not voluntary and rarely done cheerfully. Nor do our taxes go to "the poor." They mostly go to government employees who make more money than you do.

There are many stories in the bible about money and earning and giving. I don't believe that Jesus was a socialist despite what some want to believe. Consider the story of the rich man who gave money to his two sons where one didn't invest it and the other did. The man rewarded the son who had invested his money wisely and who had taken a risk, and did not reward the son who had taken no risk and earned no increase on what he had. (real conservative)
