HALF of America pays NO taxes. Zero. So they're happy for tax rates to be raised on the other half that DOES pay any taxes.I can't say that I am particularly perplexed to find that a man who believes in a God that doesn't exist would also not believe in regressive sales and payroll taxes that do exist. That particular irrationality seems rather reassuringly consistent to me, actually.
That this man claims to espouse the Christianity of the champion of the poor while celebrating the rich and denouncing the poor is a bit more perplexing to me, but one grows used to this sort of ugly evil mean-spirited hypocrisy from Christians, after all. (If your own Christianity is better than that, don't whine about me telling ugly truths you know to be true, struggle in your own lives to make a better truth true.)
I do want to send a shout out to President Obama, though, yet again, for inviting this horrid anti-gay bigot and plutocratic cocksucker to deliver the Invocation to his Inaugural. (This last comment, by the way, is not an invitation for a chorus of bullshit GOP-Dem equivalency theses, Rahmsputin conspiracy theories, or Obama is an eeeevil secret Republican/ Muslim/ Randroid/ Socialist screeds stinking up my Moot, thank you very much.)
UPDATE: Atrios shows us some more lovely blossoms in Rick Warren's fragrant garden.
