Lacking scriptural understanding
Tim Manello, in his recent letter titled, “God’s fairness versus man’s,” used scripture to bolster his belief that the rich ought to be taxed at a higher rate.
Many Liberals do the same when defending the various government programs that redistribute wealth in the name of “helping the needy.”
The fallacy in their argument is that the Scriptures they like to use are clearly a personal mandate to help out those in need, not a call for the government to take money from the wealthy to do so. Liberals need to understand that helping the poor with other people’s money is not what the scripture says.
