Rep. McDermott: Jesus ´Didn´t
Charge Food Stamps´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 12/2/2013 3:05:12 PM

Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) said on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” Wednesday that when Jesus fed five thousand people with five loaves of bread and two fish, “he didn’t charge food stamps.” “When Jesus had those five loaves and two fishes, he didn´t charge food stamps. He didn´t ask anybody how much money they had. He fed them because they were hungry, and that´s really where we ought to be,” McDermott said in response to Republican critics of the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). In September, the House approved a plan by Republicans to cut $39 billion in food stamps over the next

Comments:
You can always tell when a Democrat´s in trouble when he invokes the name of Jesus! This instance, McDermott doesn´t even make any sense ... he must use Obama´s writers.

of course he is only partly correct, Jesus feeding the masses was a miracle, not a government program. Now, if all the rich democrats in congress wanted to feed the hungry, and spent until it hurt, and/or depleted their personal fortunes and campaign coffers, I´m all for it.

Stinking democrat. He also didn´t take other peoples money to pay for it and He had more left over after He fed the 5000 which I´m sure He returned, with interest, to the original owner.

Jesus took the handful of loaves and fishes and multiplied it so that it could feed 5000.

The Federal Government takes enough money to feed 5000 from taxpayers and ends up with about 5 loaves and 2 fish to show for it.

Big difference there, Jimmy.

Just give me some food and don´t ask any pesky questions about money because Jesus didn´t ask anybody whether they could afford fish or not. Just give the whole country food and health care (not insurance) and education and a house, don´t forget the house. Oh, and a nice cellphone, plasma TV, computer w/internet, and a bunch of other stuff I can´t think of at the moment. Isn´t that what Jesus (Democrat version) would have done?

The preceding was sarcasm; McDermott´s statement was idiocy.

It´s hard to believe that anyone, even a Democrat, could be this confused. McDermott is breaking new ground here.

Among the problems:

1. It is a Straw Man argument that anyone wants Americans truly in need and hungry to starve. That is not the point at all. The issue has to do with the identification and efficient relief of the truly needy. The idea is not to waste precious resources and to enable unhealthy behavior.

2. Jesus Christ was a private citizen, not a government official. Many people believe He is the Son of God.

3. The miracle of the loaves and fishes was a miracle. It was not at taxpayer expense. Nobody had to pay for it.

4. It was a one time event, a special occasion, not an ongoing program.

5. Since McDermott seems to gave gotten religion, he should consider following the advice Jesus gave to the young man who asked him what to do in order to become perfect: sell everything he has, give it to the poor, and follow Him.

Most Democrats these days seem to be sanctimonious, hypocritical, holier-than-thou blowhards. But some are more annoying than others. McDermott is in a class by himself. The people who keep electing him must be a prize bunch.

Scripture is so often taken out of context.

It teaches if "you are unwilling to work, you shall not eat." [II Thes. 3:10] The Apostle Paul was a tent-maker.

The loaves and fishes were freely given and Jesus blessed them so they would spread to feed the gathered people. The same thing happens with charitable food banks. Jesus didn´t suggest that Ceasar create a tax and a new food stamp program.

If you follow the link to the full CNS article here:

McDermott says Republicans should be required to go to food banks, and says they would find: "these are not people who are not trying. They´re not people who are taking from the public. They´re not people who want to be there. They´re people who are ashamed in many instances to be doing something they never thought they’d be brought to, and they´re having difficulty,"

Well, he´s partially right. Under the Obama administration there certainly ARE people at food banks and soup kitchens who never thought they´d be there, and they ARE ashamed, and they HAVE no other recourse because Obama has shrunk the job market while refusing to deport the illegals who take jobs away from American citizens. But these are only the recent users of the services. They are standing in line with the OTHER users of the services, the long term users.

It is the long term patrons of the food banks and soup kitchens that are the issue. During times of full employment they never worked. Some of them are middle aged and have never worked. Ever. For them, food pantries have not been short term assistance during times of struggle, but a permanent source of free food, similar to their source of free housing, clothing, cell phones, cable TV, and all the other free stuff they get. I´ve seen the same faces there for over 10 years. Eventually one runs out of pity and begins to feel like a sucker.

Just to set the record straight, Jesus never taught that people should be tau ght to fish rather than given fish. It is a Chinese proverb.

The loaves and fishes were what the disciples managed to gather which they gave to Jesus voluntarily which Jesus as God multiplied because God can do all things. The democrats would have us worship at the pedestal of the ever powerful godlike State and submit to it or face its wrath. If the corruption seen with all the Obama scandals is typical of this kind of socialist Utopia then give me a banana republic any day over Obama´s & McDermott´sversion of govenment.

Yes, McDermott. And when the same people tried to persuade Jesus to stay with them instead of moving on to the next town, He refused, dismissing their interest as simple desire for more free food, rather than for the faith He had come to give. But if you take the Gospel out of context, you can twist it to suit almost any agenda.

Jesus calls us to share some of our food with those who have none. Evaluating whether they deserve it is not part of our call. But Jesus calls ALL of us to submit in service to each other, and that implies those seeking food should be offering whatever service they can perform in exchange. (The complication comes from each person being called to submit and serve, with each of us having the responsibility - and authority - over our own submission.)

Governmental welfare is what compassion looks like, only in a world illustrated by Salvador Dali.

Jesus didn´t have to deal with the US gov or Zippy.

If the unemployed or underemployed had decent paying jobs, they wouldn´t need food assistance. If the elderly had SS checks to match the inflation rate, they wouldn´t need help. If the deadbeats and breeders got off their bums and looked for a job, they wouldn´t be bleeding the system dry.

Do not confuse the poor with the entitled.
I see some of this up close and the greed is unbelievable. Those that don´t really need food are running from place to place collecting while food banks are depleted.

The people at Mozilla may yet live to regret their decision in cooperating with the forcing out of Brendan Eich. Apparently the internet giant has been getting a lot of negative reaction to its jettisoning of Eich for his contribution in support of California’s Proposition 8 back in 2008. Whether or not this will actually end up hurting Mozilla, one wonders whether Mozilla even anticipated the possibility. The folks at Mozilla travel in a world in which PC thought dominates, and if you don’t believe me, take Nate Silver’s word for it (and after the 2012 election, I’m inclined to

Just two days later, the group reversed the decision under pressure from evangelical leaders. “The board acknowledged it made a mistake and chose to revert to our longstanding policy requiring sexual abstinence for all single employees and

In Silicon Valley, where personal quirks and even antisocial personalities are tolerated as long as you are building new products and making money, a socially conservative viewpoint may be one trait you have to keep to yourself. On Thursday, Brendan Eich, who has helped develop some of the web’s most important technologies, resigned under pressure as chief executive of Mozilla, the maker of the popular Firefox web browser, just two weeks after taking the job. (snip) While he was being portrayed as an opponent of gay people, Mr. Eich said he believed in inclusiveness within Mozilla and had never discriminated.

In what the Los Angeles Times is referring to as a meningitis outbreak in L.A.´s gay community, since January 1 there have been eight occurrences of invasive meningococcal disease in L.A. County. Four of those cases have been of gay men, and three of those four have died, officials reported Thursday. North Hollywood and West Hollywood were identified in the Times report as the areas where the sickened men socialized. Invasive meningococcal disease is a serious bacterial infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis. The bacteria can invade the body and spread to the blood, brain, or spinal cord, causing

When discussing the thoughtcrime prosecution and ouster of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich last night, I quoted a passage from a First Things article which appeared to assert that Eich´s donation to the campaign for the Prop 8 gay marriage ban in California in 2008 - the sole reason he was hounded out of his job by a fascist mob - was made public when corrupt agents of the Internal Revenue Service leaked the donor list for the National Organization for Marriage to a gay-rights group. In an update to the post, I mentioned that I had quickly grown doubtful of

John Edwards — who quit his presidential campaign in disgrace when he was caught cheating on his wife — was barred from Bunny Mellon’s funeral by her family. The former US Senator from North Carolina had charmed Rachel Lambert Mellon, known to all as Bunny, into donating $700,000 for his 2008 presidential bid. Prosecutors charged he used some of the money to support his mistress Rielle Hunter, who was then pregnant with his daughter Frances Quinn. When the former politician and his daughter Cate Edwards, who is also his law partner, arrived Friday at Mellon’s funeral at the Trinity Episcopal

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
