Teach Your Children to Be Lazy and Poor to Be Liked!

Well, my conservative 1st Republican friends it’s time to face reality — WE LOST! I, like so many of you here in Texas thought this was a win, win situation for us to regain the White House. Man, were we wrong. As Rush, so states, “You can’t vote against Santa Claus!” Which rings so true as Democrats painted the Republicans at heartless, money hungry evil rich people who hate the poor, women and minorities? No longer does hard work, study hard to get a good job, open up a business to make money and save and invest your money wisely ring true with most Americans. As it stands Democrats and the Obama Administration frown upon those who hold dear those values of my just aforementioned attributes of “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” and expression that is meant to imply something like “improving oneself by one’s own efforts”. But sadly, it seems that Democrats seem to want every American to depend solely on the government to provide for their personal needs such as: food, housing, soon in 2014 medical insurance, iPhones, welfare checks, etc. by doing absolutely nothing but vote for them to keep on getting their freebees at someone else’s success in business or by earning a good living in a well paying job.
Really folks, what good does it do to tell our kids and grandkids to get a good education in order to be successful in this once great Nation when others will frown upon you if indeed you land a good paying job or open up a successful business. Most will call successful people and those who earn a good living as evil, greedy, money hungry, and Lord knows what else! I guess that most of us to be liked have to be on welfare and sit on our butts at home watching TV and waiting for a welfare check. Really, what good is it for us to go get a job if one can stay home and let the government provide for our needs for years on end!
I guess I, as a practicing Catholic and Christians of other denominations have to learn to love to be poor in order for God and others to like us. No longer should we strive to work hard to donate to our church, provide clothing, shelter, food, pay our bills and utilities to keep our families warm and comfortable because we will be tagged as greedy and money hungry. Instead, we should let the government provide for all our family needs. To confirm that God seems to love poor people more than us hardworking and successful folks here’s some biblical passages: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh.” “Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him?” “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.”
But wait a minute my friends, in order for God and others to like us should we then aligned ourselves with a government party (Democrats) who support killing the unborn, support marriage between two men or two women, tell religious organizations that they will have to provide contraceptives and abortions on demand regardless if their church teachings and God’s as well are totally against it? Do ya’ll think God likes and is in step with a political group that espouses those government-mandated policies He’s stated he is totally against? Here’s some biblical statements about a fetus in the womb: The word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy.” Here’s how the Bible condemns homosexuality as an immoral and unnatural sin. Identifies homosexual sex as an abomination, a detestable sin. Declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent. States that homosexuals are unrighteous and will not inherit the kingdom of God. It is clear that homosexuals “marrying” is not God’s will, and would be, in fact, sinful. So there you have it my friends, should I a conservative Republican Catholic embrace wanting not to work and be poor, plus wanting the government to provide for me and my family and should I throw under the bus, the teachings of my Catholic church not to kill the unborn nor support same sex marriage?
During this last election I lost a lot of Hispanic Catholic friends because I’d challenge them in our church’s stance and teachings against abortion and same sex marriage. They would get incensed when I’d posted on Facebook biblical passages about killing the unborn and same sex marriage, which their Democrat Party supports. They simply responded that they were against abortion and same sex marriage but were still voting Democrat. My response to them was, “Ya’ll are like Jews voting for Hitler!”
One bright side in all this mess: Thank God we live in Texas, a Republican run state that just elected a Latino Senator (Ted Cruz)!

Brother James, the worst is yet to come! The world is full of crises that will soon explode. Most of us are Christians, Catholics in name only! The true meaning and spirit of God’s love is gone from our hearts and souls. America, and your Catholic friends, have willingly turned their backs on God (free will). We have willingly permitted the enemy to take God out of our schools and meeting places. Abortion is murder by another “politically-correct” name. Lambs being led to slaughter are those who vote Democrat “because my daddy and his daddy were always Democrat.” They have lost the ability to think for themselves, to judge correctly. James, do you know how to kill 11,000,000 people? Read the book! The Jews went willingly to slaughter because Hitler lied to them…and they believed him. The Bigger the Lie, The Better! Obama is a master liar! He is an evil, narcissistic man. Obama is Satan’s angel and all that anyone has to do is to look at what he has done in just his first 4 years. He is telling the Big Lie, and the lambs will be slaughtered. History repeats itself. James, God’s Will Be Done! It’s America’s turn to feel the wrath of God. People of true Faith must remain Faithful for we all will suffer the same fates. “God Damn America!” …ironically the Reverend Wright was right!

Check your comment receiver. It keeps spinning. I'll try again.
What a cry baby. You didn't lose the election. The American people won.
I suggest that you practice what you preach from the Bible. Stop making false accusations. We have abortion because the Republicans gave it to us. There are Republican gays in congress who want the right to be gay. I'm against those things that the Bible calls a sin. However, I'm not going to be hoodwinked into voting for someone who talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. "I'M NOT VOTING FOR A LIAR." Do what the Bible tells you to do. Do what the Catholic Church teaches. "ALL OF IT." 1 John 4:1 ESV "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. Romans 16:17-18 ESV "I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive." Matthew 7:15 ESV "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves." Congratulations to Ted Cruz and to Joaquin Castro.

"Obama is Satan’s angel." "He is telling the Big Lie."
Joe, you and your ilk better watch your step. You are trying to hide the sinning ways which you caused/created. You are the ones doing Satan's work.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 ESV "For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds."
"God’s Will Be Done!" "People of true Faith must remain Faithful for we all will suffer the same fates."
Then start repenting before the thief comes for you on "YOUR" given night.
1 Thessalonians 5:2 "For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night." I will pray for you; but you need to search your heart, admit what you're doing is wrong, and repent. If not, my prayers will not be answered.

Wow. Just, wow. I was wondering how Mr. Reza would expound upon the beating conservative ideas took on Election Day. Would it try to be anything other than yet another patent conservative "WAAAAHHHH!!!".
I'm going to offer some personal advice to Mr. Reza. Pardner, you seem to have two conflicting views about your religios beliefs. You spend one part whining that it tells you to be generous to the poor. You then spend the next part using it as an excuse to gripe about not being allowed to control other folk's personal lives. From this, I gather that you like the Old Testament 'Do What God Says, Else I Shall Make You Suffer In His Name', but hat the New Testament "Jesus Says You Should Always Love Others, No Matter What As It Makes You A Better Person'.
Might I suggest that perhaps Christianity is not really your cup of tea? I'm not an expert on the world's religious options, but I reckon a few minutes on Google would give you and those like you some options. There has to be a Monotheistic religion out there that discards the validity of the New Testament. Or barring that, start your own with like-minded folks!
Now this new (old? haha!) religion would need a name. It's basic goal is to provide a moral justification for being a selfish, autocratic jerk. What is called an asshole in the common vernacualr. Being this kind of person would allow you to get into Heaven after you die while those not able to meet these standards would go to Hell. Only holy folks get into Heaven, correct? So your new religion has its name!
I sincerely hope that this advice sends you on trip to further spiritual advancement.
