Are Christians soft on deporting aliens after reading "When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. The stranger who sojourns with you shall be to you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt"?
Does the admonition to "Render unto Caesar" mean taxes aren't necessarily immoral? Does the command "Feed my sheep" and the account of 5,000 being fed free seafood and bread suggest throwing people off welfare rolls is a low priority?
A previous writer asserting health care is a privilege is undoubtedly outraged by "Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back."
Do Christians find support for increasing wealth disparity in "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume, and thieves break in and steal"?
Perhaps not all Christians worship the Second Amendment and support unending wars and defense expenditures because they recall, "Do not resist one who is evil. But if any one strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
No, as another writer assured us while backing his candidate, real Christians care only about outlawing abortion, restricting gay rights, and unrestricted access to guns. One wonders, though, if this is all the faith consists of, why so many gave themselves to be mauled by lions in an arena.
