HYPOCRISY! Politicians Get Religion as Election Draws Near…

If there was one thing Jesus despised more than anything else it was hypocrisy.

“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves” (Matt. 23:13–15).

There are lots of politicians out there who will do almost anything for votes. If they are willing to pass laws that take money from some people so they can give it to other people and then claim that they are the ones being benevolent, then why would we be surprised that they would call on God to help them get votes?

These are the same people who support abortion demand and homosexuality, two practices the Bible condemns. Wealth confiscation in the name of social justice is nowhere to found in the Bible. In fact, a ten percent tax is considered to be a sign of political tyranny (1 Sam. 8).

I believe the shock of the national reaction to the majority delegate “no-vote” on putting God back into the Democratic Party platform is beginning to worry some Democrats. In addition, very little is coming out on Romney’s faith. Part of the problem of attacking Romney’s Mormonism is that the leader of the Senate, Harry Reid, is a Mormon.
