The Emperor TOTALLY misapplies scripture

The Emperor once again shows his lack of real Christian knowledge with his quoting of scripture as a means to justify raising taxes on the rich.

Apparently sitting under the teachings of Rev Wright all those years the Emperor was never taught that applying scriptural principles REQUIRES they be applied in CONTEXT.  The context of Luke 12:48 is very clear that it has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with taxes.  It is a discussion about the responsibility of "managers" to be good stewards of what they manage - be it people or money - and to handle it as though the manager's superior may return from a long journey and expect to see that the manager has handled the affairs of the superior properly while he was gone. 

A more accurate application is that the Emperor has been hired by the people of the country to "manage" our country - and I would suggest that we the people have every reason to BEAT some Sense into the Emperor and REMOVE him from managing due to his TOTAL FAILURE to manage things properly.  The people of the country under his management are not better off due to his actions as a matter of fact we are FAR WORSE than when the Emperor took over as manager and began to make his changes.

Our country is in terrible condition because of his management decisions, and it is way past time for him to be replaced.

Judeo  Christian Scripture has several parables about money and management, and all of them put the responsibility on the manager to get it right or suffer the consequences from the owner.  None of them would justify the Emperor's conclusion that he should tax the rich more because the Bible tells him to. On the contrary the Bible tells us to be good stewards of what we have and use good judgement in our decisions when managing to improve things, not to subjugate people under our management to become dependent on hand outs and cradle to grave government care for their day to day living.

This is another example of how the Emperor has chosen to miss-quote scripture to justify his agenda.  Those at the Prayer breakfast were very kind in not standing up and calling him a hypocrite and a liar when he tried to use scripture to justify not only raising taxes but funding of abortion.  It is outrageous he chose to break with tradition at the breakfast and make a political/campaign speech instead of how past presidents had the good sense to confine their remarks to non-political topics.
