What did the Biblical Jesus do? He hung around people considered to be taboo by the religious establishment, asked his followers to give up everything they had, and then used that to help the poor. Jesus said that it's almost impossible for a rich person to be saved. This loon says that Jesus really meant that god wants the most hardworking and deserving to be rich.
Guys like these are the money changers that Jesus flipped out on.
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
