... Is it possible to incorporate biblical understanding into politics family?


They argue that cutting benefit programs and cutting tax breaks for low- and middle-income families violates Jesus Christ's teaching to care for those with the least. It's running into another school of Christian thought followed by many Southern conservatives: The best way to help the poor is through private charity, providing jobs and promoting self-reliance, rather than government programs.

More than 350 people have been arrested since "Moral Monday" demonstrations started on April 29.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Over the last two months, hundreds of protesters have walked out of North Carolina's capitol in handcuffs to show their opposition to policies by the GOP-controlledLegislature.

While a broader coalition of supporters is building around the "Moral Mondays" started by the state chapter of the NAACP, the inspiration behind the protests is a throwback to the biblical message of civil rights leaders fighting segregation in the Jim Crow era.

Congratulations Chevron, it's quite an accomplishment, hats off to you and yours. Return when you can, your son's graduation is far more important.

Peace In,

This just goes to show you about all of the Rep. that invoke the bible, and recite quotes from it are hypocrites. The very people that has put this brutha in cuffs, will sit up in church Sunday and praise god and his teachings. The very teachings they are putting people in jail for trying to uphold them.

Peace!
