All of a sudden the left has a crush on the sitting pope since he is talking about income re-distribution. They say that’s what Jesus wanted and would do.

When Jesus gave away food to the masses it was accompanied with lectures about heaven and the kingdom of God. The left and the ACLU-types wouldn’t put up with that for a minute.

I regularly donate to food banks and drives, but feel the government takes too big of a cut to administer the redistribution of taxes. As far as I know, Jesus gave away bread and fish. I’m pretty sure he didn’t pay anyone’s cell phone or cable bill.

— Timothy Marron, Grapevine
