Jesus and the Poor

From Stephen Colbert ~~~
If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are or we’ve got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition — and then admit that we just don’t want to do it. (Hat top to Sue L.)

I realize this comment is directed at the "Christian Right" who spew God and Jesus rhetoric but fail to live the Gospel. But, this is not going to be a Christian nation, we are too diverse. However, we can become a nation the lives by the Golden Rule, regardless of the faith one professes. It's a good quote, but do have some issues with it...
