Leftists squeal over hearing Bible at prayer breakfastSubmitted by GoodSamaritan on Tue, 02/12/2013 - 19:00
Dr. Ben Carson’s prayer breakfast blast at the national debt, progressive taxation, and other leftist insanity has stolen the national stage temporarily. Newsmax reports,
Opening his remarks with quotations from the Old Testament books of Proverbs and Second Chronicles, the neurosurgeon blasted the nation’s $16.4 trillion debt, its cumbersome tax system — and its “inefficient” health care system.
Although Obama kept his cool at the moment, other leftists got fairly bent out of shape over the audacity of someone actually applying the Bible at a prayer breakfast. As Breitbart.com reports, Democrat Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky criticized the speech as “not appropriate.”
I think it’s really–not really an appropriate place to make this kind of political speech, and to invoke God as support for that kind of view. But I think of most of all the kind of message that he was giving shows a real empathy gap with where the American people are right now, and I think it’s reflective of where many of the Republicans and Tea Parties are right now, that we need to have an economy that works for everyone.
