“Deut. 15:7. If there is a poor man among you, one of your brothers, in any of the towns of the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not harden your heart, nor close your hand to your poor brother; but you shall freely open your hand to him, and generously lend him sufficient for his need in whatever he lacks.”
Thanks to our News Ninja Gene we’re given an estimate on deaths related to poverty from Disabled World: “In the first comprehensive analysis of such studies, researchers at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health found that poverty, low levels of education, poor social support and other social factors contribute about as many deaths in the U.S. as such familiar causes as heart attacks, strokes and lung cancer.” Now the question of why the Religious Right, who claim to be “Pro Life’ is hell bent on making sure the poor, sick and disabled are cast aside and left to suffer and die.
We’re in a abyss where the safety net for society is being dismantled piece by piece, much like a hostile take over in corporations, and it’s the people who suffer for the disregard and malevolence that’s being projected by the GOP. America has become a corporate nation and we’re not apart of the upper management. No severance package, no retirement or health plan for you!
If this is a christian nation then we’ve missed the message, and those who claim they work for the people seem to have only their best interest in mind. If those who rule with a bible in one hand and God beside them, then they have a strange way of interpreting God’s word. It looks more like a social cleansing than it does christian charity.
Also, please go and read about the ACHE ACT. Call your Representatives and ask them to support and sign on to this life saving bill! Together we can make a difference for many generations to come!
