Edwards: Jesus would be 'appalled' at US selfishness

Incase you missed this story last week:

Edwards: Jesus would be ‘appalled’ by U.S
Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Multimillionaire Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be “appalled” at how the United States has ignored the plight of those suffering around the world.

Edwards, who was recently criticized by his neighbors in North Carolina for building a monstrous estate reportedly covering 102 acres of land, said in an interview with the Web site that Jesus would be most upset with the selfishness of Americans and the country’s willingness to go to war “when it’s not necessary.”

“I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs,” Edwards told the site. “I think he would be appalled, actually.”

NEWSFLASH: Hey Liberals: paying an accountant to figure out the way to pay the least in taxes, and then paying those taxes IS NOT CHARITY!!!!

I love when these elitist limousine liberals talk about how awful the plebian class is in America, how WE ALL ought to be giving more, and how taxes, in general, just aren't high enough. Maybe when you are as rich as they are and have so much that it is cheaper to pay a team of accountants to figure out how not to pay your taxes - when in reality they have so much they could just write the check and not even feel it. They want to raise taxes on those of us who don't "save" by hiring accountants while they figure out creative ways to screw Uncle Sam.

Then they have the audacity to say they don't need a tax cut (how many of them gave the money back though?) and that taxes aren't high enough. They have the audacity to think that they are charitable because they want to raise OUR taxes and make us adopt THEIR social welfare programs.

Hey John, if you want to give back to the community, why not open up your brand new mansion to the homeless? Why not make it a woman's shelter, or let some poor inner city kids move in with you so they can go to a good school. THAT is charity, not raising taxes on everyone else.
