Have you noticed that the so-called “separation of church and state” doesn’t matter to both leftists and controlist RINO (Republicans-in-name-only) politicians? Religion, especially Christianity — which they hate — can never be mixed with anything public or government, except when it comes to pushing for big, intrusive government.
Establishment squish John Kasich, the Ohio governor and floundering presidential candidate, has gone over the deep end again, shamefully and deceitfully twisting biblical scripture to fit with his support of Obamacare.
In an interview with the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC), the serpent-like Kasich offered to buy anyone a Bible who didn’t agree with his expanding Medicaid expansion via Obamacare, a policy he fought for and implemented in Ohio, despite the protests of fiscal conservatives everywhere.
“Part of the difficulty we have in this town is we don’t have leaders who are willing to lead instead of reacting to whoever yells the loudest,” Kasich told the USHCC interviewer.
Well, look at Medicaid expansion. You know how many people are yelling at me? I go to events where people yell at me. Who know what? You know what I tell ’em? I mean — God bless ’em — I’m telling ’em a little bit better at this.
“You know, there’s a book [Bible], it’s got a new part and an old part. They put it together — it’s a remarkable book. If you don’t have one, I’ll buy you one. And it talks about how we treat the poor.”
Kasich then went on to compare fighting for Obamacare to fighting ISIS, saying, “Sometimes you just have to lead.”
Note to Kasich, you may have a Bible, which to real Christians is more than just a “book,” but is considered the Word of God. Furthermore, your leftist talking points are identical to Barack Obama’s.
NOWHERE in the Bible does Jesus teach transferring one’s individual responsibility to help the poor to government.
Furthermore, “charity” via government is highly unconstitutional, and there is no better source on this than Founding Father James Madison, the main author of the U.S. Constitution.
“Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.” ~ James Madison
As RedState brilliantly put it:
“This is the farthest thing from anything Jesus discussed in the New Testament possible. Not only is the concept Kasich is selling not found anywhere in the book he wants to buy for his critics, it is directly antithetical to it. Jesus did not say, “Blessed are you, for I was hungry, and you made the government extract taxes from other people to buy me bread.” The fact that John Kasich thinks Christian charity can be discharged this way means that Kasich doesn’t understand squat about Christianity, and also is a dyed in the wool liberal at heart.”
Moreover, not only Kasich not find Jesus pushing for big government in the Bible, he cannot find “charity” or healthcare as an authorized function in Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution. He may want to brush up on both before he spews his Marxist claptrap.
Even Satan quoted scripture when he needed to frame his narrative.
Shame on you, John Kasich, for perverting the Bible to push your leftist agenda, just like a Democrat!
