    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    It's more reprehensible for someone making $1 million annually to complain about any poor slob living off welfare.

    "Living off welfare" is mainly a fallacy. Welfare is far from a meaty check. The people that stay on welfare are very much so a minority

    All of them? (I don't see how someone could be on welfare unintentionally, I mean, I think you have to apply and all that)

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say but anyone getting gov assistance has to meet the criteria for that monetary help. Which means they are basically living off of charity and don't have enough income to get by without it.

    False. That is ridiculously false. Do you know what it's like to have to live in a tiny trailer and barely have enough money to pay the bills? Do you know what it's like to go only to bargain sales at grocery stores because, even with food stamps, you cannot afford to eat other foods? Have you ever had to wear preowned clothes because new clothes were too expensive? Have you ever lived in a cold house because heating is too expensive? I have. It is not a choice. It is not a fabulous life. It sucks; it's awful; it is no choice that anybody makes.

    I think it is more reprehensible to make such slanted polls based on straw man arguments.

    I know quite a few welfare recipients that hide the fact that they work so that they can have enough money to pay for necessities. The problem with welfare is that it is taken away in whole and the people are not weened off. Welfare is not wealthy living

    When you say making a million a year, do you mean before or after taxes?
