Christian Republicans

To the Editor:

Republicans like to act as if Christianity only deals with sexual morality.

They’ve made changes to the essence of Christ’s message.

Blessed are the agricultural giants and to heck with the hungry – no more food stamps.

Blessed are those who can afford health care. To heck with those without. Let’s vote 37 times to repeal their chance to see a doctor.

Blessed are those who have rich parents. To heck with those who can’t afford college. Let’s raise the interest rates on their loans so the Koch Brothers don’t have to pay more taxes.

Blessed are those who want to pay less than minimum wage, for they shall make millions on the backs of the poor and undocumented workers.

I hope America wakes up and realizes the Republican agenda is the most unchristian, diabolical, mean-spirited plan since the Pharaoh decided to make use of some cheap labor to build his city.
