Trick question, there are lots of them who are. They don’t have Koch-money to amplify their voices or patrons on Fox News to nourish them, but they exist and it makes sense they would: there’s this one guy in the Bible whose words sound awfully similar to progressives today.
WaPo– When Jesus separates the “sheep and the goats,” the saved and the unsaved in Matthew 25:31-46, the only question that matters is whether someone cared for the “least of these,” the poor, the naked, the homeless and those in prison. Those being judged ask Jesus, “‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
Jesus replies, “‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’” How does the “Ryan budget” stack up by that measure of faithfulness?
Christians, I say to you, if you allow your faith and philosophy to be represented to the nation and the world by social conservatives yelling about Obama’s birth certificate, if you stand by and watch your beliefs undergo political amputations until they can be surgically fitted to the feudal corpus favored by Ryan-Romney, it will injure and possibly destroy your religion.
The conservative sociopaths writing the checks do not give a shit about abortion or gay marriage, they care about return on their investment. They’re investing now in hope of tax cuts and subsidies measured in the trillions of dollars tomorrow. And they won’t just use and abuse your religion to win what they want, they’ll use your religion up if that’s what it takes to cross the finish line.
