Bear in mind that the group that is criticizing Ryan is a Catholic progressive group, and yes, they also have their own political agenda. Question is which agenda is Christian - This one, or the one it criticizes?“If Rep. Ryan thinks a budget that takes food and health care away from millions of vulnerable people upholds Catholic values, then he also probably believes Jesus was a tea partier who lectured the poor to stop being so lazy and work harder,” said Gehring. “This budget turns centuries of Catholic social teaching on its head. These Catholic leaders and many Catholics in the pews are tired of faith being misused to bless an immoral agenda.”
So here's the deal - Does Ryan's budget follow the teachings of Jesus or not? Why do you believe so, or why not? Is this group taking Christianity out of context when it makes it's accusations against Ryan? Why do you think so? Is America a Christian nation? If so, then does the government have a responsibility to follow the teachings of Jesus?
Later in the thread I have a follow up question for discussion, and it will be based on the responses I receive in this thread.
To both on the right and left - Be respectful of each other when you give your responses. Thank you.
