On the resent National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. you said:
“Jesus would back my tax-the-rich policy.”
You went on to say that your understanding of the Bible is the basis for your economic policies.
Campaigning in Ohio, presidential candidate Rick Santorum was criticizing your radical environmental views, which he said hurt the American people.
“It’s not about you [people],” Santorum declared. “It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible — a different theology.”
Very few commented on your statements at the prayer breakfast. People seem to be perfectly happy that you are using your understanding of the Bible as the basis for your polices.
When Rick Santorum challenges you on your understanding of the Bible, saying that your theology is open to challenge, everybody is jumping on him, saying that any criticism of your Christian belief is over the line.
You invited a discussion on your understanding of the Bible since you use it as the basis for your economic polices.
What is your biblical basis for not having an opinion whether we should have a budget or not?
What is your biblical understanding on abortion? The only references on abortion I can find in the Bible are child sacrifices, as was practiced in Baal worship. Is that your basis?
Where is the biblical justification for Government regulation trumping Religion?
Please let me know where you stand on the Bible since it is your understanding of the Bible that is the basis for your economic polices.
You were in Rev. Jeremy Wright’s Church for twenty years. You said you never listened to his sermons. How did you obtain your understanding of the Bible?
