Why Are "Conservative Christians" and Republicans Waging War Against The Poor

In an interview today with "Fox News Sunday," Alaska GOP Senate nominee Joe Miller had trouble explaining how he would help the 43.6 million Americans in poverty, even as host Chris Wallace repeatedly pressed him for more than conservative talking points.

Miller is the new poster-boy in Alaska, the ultra conservative Tea Party Christian.  And he just has no time or energy for the poor.  As the Anchorage Daily News has reported, "Miller has called for across-the-board cuts, phasing out government Medicare and Social Security, and getting rid of the federal Department of Education because it is not in the Constitution, leaving the function to the states. He's going well beyond positions that Palin advocated when she was running to be governor of the state and those she espoused as governor."  So what did Miller say:
"I think what you need to look at is the context. We had an extension of unemployment benefits several weeks ago, which is beyond what we had in the past in this country. What we have in this country is an entitlement mentality. Entitlement, not just as individual but even at the state level. If all goes wrong, it's the federal government's role to get in there and provide for the general welfare and provide for solvency; particularly, of states and the auto companies, and the banks. Everything else that fails, the government should be involved in bailing out."
Miller's views on unemployment benefits are further to the right than the positions of many Republicans in Congress, who oppose extending them if they aren't paid for, but haven't gone as far as to say that they're unconstitutional.  [By the way, the Supreme Court has ruled that such benefits are constitutional - but I am sure Miller knows better than they do how to interpret the Constitution.]

But Miller is not alone.  Oh no.  He has plenty of company.  As I previously reported, Kentucky Republican Sen. Jim Bunning made himself a pariah when he singlehandedly blocked a reauthorization of unemployment benefits back in February, saying "tough shit" to a Democratic senator's request to help the long-term jobless and complaining that having to stiff the unemployed was causing him to miss a basketball game.

Since then, almost the entire Republican party has taken up the retiring senator's argument that deficit reduction is more important than jobless aid, and extended benefits have been in limbo since the beginning of June, affecting 2.1 million people.

And what of Sharon Angle?  In the best blame the victim attitude, Sharron Angle says the unemployed are just lazy. It is too bad she wasn't alive during the Great Depression, she could have saved us all from that too.

I always thought that one of the tenants of Christianity was to help to the poor and underprivileged.  But I guess if you believe Sharon they are just lazy and should be forced onto the streets (just not in front of her house).

Blaming the poor for being poor is an easy target.  I mean if you are rich you have had to do something right, right?  Or is it that you just were luckier and had better circumstances?  I mean how many poor get to be like Miller and go to England to study?  How many of those stricken by illness are just not working hard enough to pay their medical bills?

Let them eat cake!


  1. I guess conservative Christians believe God helps those who help themselves. And they've been helping themselves to tax cuts and subsidies for themselves. Christ had a different message: give all you have to the poor. Also He said it will be harder for a rich man to enter heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. Jesus was a liberal who couldn't get elected to any office in this environment.

  2. Yeah, and Jesus was a socialist, too.

  3. Fact is most Christian haven't a clue to what they even worship when they go to church on sunday. Most are entirely ignorant to any real history of what it all really means. They don't see how stupid and hypocritical their lives are as they live in complete contradiction to the " teachings of jesus."
    If they took as minute to educate themselves perhaps they'd see what idiots they look like for even believing in the bible and jesus. Let alone that their religion is the right one.

  4. I found this on and thought you might find it interesting as well since this is about religion and world politics.


    Jews Are Not Descendants of Abraham

    “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the Synagogue of Satan.”

    (Revelation 2:9)

    “And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land…”

    (Genesis 12:7)

    Who should possess the land of Israel? Christian evangelicals say it should be the descendants of Abraham. They point to the Old Testament and claim that God gave this land forever to the descendants of Abraham and that God demands they and they alone own the land.

    To the Christian evangelical, this means the Jews. Yes, it is the Jews who own this land, and it is their land forever.

    Itil, capital of Khazaria

    In 2008, Russian archaeologist Dmitry Vasilyev unearthed Itil, the long lost capital of the Kingdom of Khazaria. New DNA science proves that today’s “Jews” come from Khazaria and are not the seed of Abraham.

    The Jews, then, according to Christian evangelicals, are the descendants of Abraham, his seed.

    DNA Science Confounds the Common Wisdom

    There is only one problem. And it is a huge one. Science proves those who call themselves “Jews” are not Jews! DNA Science has confounded the Christian evangelicals by proving conclusively that most of the people in the nation of Israel and in World Jewry are not the descendants of Abraham.

    Those living today who profess to be “Jews” are not of the ancient Israelites, and they are not the seed of Abraham. In fact, the new DNA research shows that the Palestinians actually have more Israelite blood than do the “Jews!”

    The nation of Israel today is populated with seven and half million imposters.

    The “Jews” Are Not Jews But Are Khazarians

    Dr. Eran Elhaik, geneticist researcher at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, found that today’s “Jews” originated from Khazaria and not Israel. They are not the seed of Abraham.

    The newest DNA science finding is from Dr. Eran Elhaik (“a Jew”) and associates at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In research accepted December 5, 2012 and published by the Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution, it was found that the “Khazarian Hypothesis” is scientifically correct.



    What exactly is the “Khazarian Hypothesis?” Simply stated, it holds that the Jewry genome is a mosaic of ancestries which rise primarily out of the Khazars.

    Jews are Khazars, not Israelites.

    The “Jews” of America, Europe, and Israel are descendants not of Father Abraham but of King Bulan and the people of ancient Khazaria. Khazaria was an amalgam of Turkic clans who once lived in the Caucasus (Southern Russia) in the early centuries CE. These Turkic peoples were pagans who converted to Judaism in the eighth century. As converts, they called themselves “Jews,” but none of their blood comes from Israel.

    Geneticists report that less than 2% of “Jews” living in Israel are actually Israelites.

    Later, the “Jews” (Khazars) emigrated, settling in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Germany, and elsewhere in Europe. As “Jews,” the Khazars then left the European nations in 1948 and settled the fledgling, new nation of Israel.

    The people of Israel are not the seed, nor the ancestors, of Abraham. They call themselves “Jews,” but in fact, DNA science shows them to be Khazars. They say they are “Jew,” but they are not.

    “There are no blood or family connections among the Jews,” said Dr. Elhaik in an interview with Haaretz, Israel’s daily newspaper. “The various groups of Jews in the world today do not share a common genetic origin. Their genome is largely Khazar.”

    The Khazarians, never in Israel, converted to Talmudic Judaism in the 8th Century.

    God Did Not Give the Land to the Khazarians
    Thus, when Prime Minister Netanyahu says, “God gave this land to our Israelite forefathers,” he is absolutely wrong. There are no Israelite forefathers of today’s “Jews.” When today’s “Jews” say they should possess the land because they are Israelites and are the seed of Abraham, they are mistaken.

    The “Jews” are in Israel for one reason and one reason only: Because the United States, in 1948, recognized the nation of “Israel” and has since funded and protected it. God’s Word has nothing to do with it.

    God’s Word, the Holy Bible, prophesied that in the last days imposters would erroneously and falsely claim to be “Jews.” These imposters would, the Bible told us, persecute their enemies and especially the Christians. But God would have his revenge:

    “Behold, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; Behold I will make them to come and worship at thy feet and know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)

    Do the “Jews” (Khazars) not do exactly as our God prophesied? Do they not persecute the Palestinians and defile the land, claiming they are its original inhabitants? This, even though their proven ancestors, the Khazars, never set foot in the Middle East and are not the seed of Abraham?

    My thanks to Dr. Eran Elhaik of Johns Hopkins University and to his associates. You have performed a valuable service with your DNA research, both to Christianity and to world understanding. Elhaik’s research confirms earlier DNA studies, especially the work of Dr. Ariella Oppenheim of Hebrew University, who likewise found, in 2001, that the “Jews” came from the Khazars rather than the Israelites. Dr. Oppenheim even found that some of the Palestinians have the chromosomes proving they are “Cohen,” related to the ancient Israelites who worked in the Synagogue and Temple.

    Where, and Who, Are the Seed of Abraham?

  6. I ask my evangelical Christian friends: What will you do now? Will you heed what God said, in Revelation 2 and 3, about “them which say they are Jews and are not?” Will you accept modern DNA science as legitimate and valuable in proving the truth of God’s Word?

    Or will you, dear Christian friend, walk right on by, dismissing what both God and science have informed you?

    God said that the seed of Abraham would inherit the land. Therefore, we must—absolutely must—in light of the DNA evidence, ask ourselves: Where, and who are the seed of Abraham?

    We know that Netanyahu and the people who now inhabit Israel have no claim to the land. They are interlopers, false pretenders. But there is a true and legitimate Chosen People of God. In fact, the scriptures had it right all along. The answer is found in Galatians 3:29. Read it for yourself:

    “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.”

    So, if you belong to Jesus our Lord, you are “Abraham’s seed,” regardless of your physical race. You are overcomers, and Revelation 21:7 promises, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things.” This is the great secret that every true Christian knows.

    God is not a racist. The Great Commission extends to every race and ethnicity. We who love Jesus are His Chosen People, and we have the promise first given to Abraham way back in Genesis.

    Know this, and you will forever be greatly blessed. And that, dear friends is the promise given Abraham and his seed.

    P.S. Why do the Christians worship the Jews?

    1. Yes SusPack is a blog which is open for discussion and I encourage a wide level of differing view-points; however, the overall premise of your comments strikes me as Anti-Semitic. Further, your comments as a whole lack focus as to a material point of discussion, other than to denigrate Jewish people.

      And while I do discuss religion and biblical issues, I personally believe the Bible is fiction, so it matters not to me personally where the "Jewish" people originated.

      I'm 100% against hate and bigotry of any sort.
