You go, Colbert! The loudest voices about keeping all your money and destroy the environment because we have dominion over the world... well they do seem to say they are Christian and the bible tells them to... I guess they don't read what they don't want to read.

I always laugh at the shock the uber right wing extreme christians express when it is pointed out that jesus fed the poor and healed the sick which makes him *gasp* a socialist!!!

Okay, so this gets passed along deeeep, becomes my mantra, screensaver, greeting to all people and the one thing I can agree with today.

Thanks Toad.

Toad -- I like Colbert and I don't think I'm slower than the next man but without any context I do not know what point he is trying to make. That we should not consider ourselves a Christian nation (I thought this idea had died anyway with multiculturalism), that as a nation we should be doing more to help the poor (to which I would agree), or as individuals we should be doing more to help the poor (to which I would strongly disagree, research showing that Americans give more time and $ to others, by far, than other nations)?
