    From a political standpoint, it is not up to the government to help the poor. From a religious standpoint, it IS up to those who profess a belief in God and Christ to do so. There are going to be a lot of people with a pitchfork up their ass wondering why the hell they are in hell. The reason is simple - Jesus said that "whatever people do unto the least of these they have done unto me". But no, it's not up to the government. People have free choice whether or not to follow the teachings of Christ. God intended it that way.

    Ok, i KNOW this is not a religious argument, but i neeeeeed to say this. If someone comes up to you with a gun, and says, "you either give me all your money, or i kill you". well yeah you have a choice, but not really, just like the whole religion thing if you REALLY believe in that stuff, is not a choice either. yeah follow me and everything i say and devote your life to me, or don't, but if you DON'T you go to a place of eternal torture...

    The **** does religion have to do with this thread?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I'm actually defending religion here (i can't believe it), but when someone actually holds to a belief like Christianity, then IT SHOULD be involved in almost every thread, they should always be asking "what would Jesus do" in a sense. the poor is a big issue in the new testament, and considering a lot of people make that book a huge part of their life, then i think it belongs here.

    Yes, but the "giving and helping" part should be voluntary. Not fored by government because some people think it's a good idea.

    Giving and helping is voluntary, paying your taxes is not.

    also, the person who posted the original post that you were responding to said that in their post about it not being the governments place to do those things, i was just saying i think that, that distinction needs to be made, if the person is a right wing conservative christian, as many liberals use the bible as a source of argument for their evil empire of wealth redistribution.

    It is not the responsibility of the government to take care of children. That is a familys responsibility. Churches help all the time. Lay-off my tax money.

    my point stands, if churches are doing such a great job, why the hell are there programs that help parents take care of their children, if these churches are doing such a perfect job? what, if we reduce everyone's taxes by a little, that they are suddenly going to spend all that extra money on children charities? no.
