Quotes From The Son

Watching Bill Mahr talk about the Pope's visit the other day, I was surprised at how easy the hardcore atheist was about the tidings of the Bishop of Rome. Of course, he used the Pope's messages for his own political means, but the quotes he pulled from the Bible were the touching, compassionate sort that I remember hearing from the local Fathers as I attended CCD.

"Sell everything you own and give it to the poor."

"Be on your guard against all kinds of greed"

"When you give a banquet, invite the poor, even though they cannot repay you."

Not gonna lie. I can't remember the last time I invited the poor to a party I threw. In the Republican's defense though, the third quote can definitely be interpreted as an argument for supply-side economics.
