In Short: Jesus, Republicans, & the Rich

Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.
Luke 18:25

Variations abound, but this is one of those that shows up with Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

How are the angrily-sanctimonious Republicans counting themselves amongst the heavenly-bound Christians while shouting down gay rights (which Jesus said - NOTHING - about) and beating down provisions for the poor and troubled (9/11 workers) while trying to make the rich richer?

Note to Republicans: Jesus said y'all are camels. Enjoy Hell.

The fat on Limbaugh alone will take all of eternity to roast. Should be quite the blaze.

Colbert takes them to task in his usual brilliant way.

And these arrogant you-know-whats
seem to have forgotten these, too:

From Matthew:

"Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God."

"How hard it will be for those who have riches to enter the kingdom of God!"
