"How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!" Benjamin Franklin

“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts!” Benjamin Franklin

How many people claim to be Christian but have no idea of the values Christ tried to extol. That those who are at the top of the pecking order, with no moral fibre or virtuous  thought amongst them, making sure that those who need their assistance are bled dry. Those who don’t need their assistance have every door opened, and every tax break imaginable.

Of course the poor are poor due to their own actions. Of course it’s not due to the fact that their schools are purposefully underfunded. Or their medical expenses are so high it’s family bankruptcy or a slow death. Or their votes are circled in such a way they mean nothing. Or that they paid so little that they have to use tips to top it off (which FYI they may not be able to soon) so need to work two or three jobs to put a roof over their table let alone decent food on the table.

But it’s soooooo the poor people’s fault.
