More phony faith

Duane (Radio Blogger) has an excellent piece tearing apart Kerry's phony faith:
He cited Matthew 25:40 — "Whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto me" — and said Jesus' admonition should determine the moral obligation everyone in society has to each other.

One of his favorites. He's used this on the stump before. It's also not complete. He forgot to cite two words that help explain the meaning of the verse. It should read:

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me.

...the least of these my brethren.

Jesus wasn't talking about the government's role in solving poverty. He was talking about the upcoming judgment of all the nations on how they treated (and this is subject to debate) either fellow Jews or new Christians.

Go read the rest.
