Asshats on Parade - God Edition - Rep.Stephen Fincher of Tennessee

I am religious. The moment a US politician mentions God, s/he loses a measure of electability for me. I am not far from making the rule that I will not vote for a God mentioner. At the moment that is impractical as a hard and fast rule. If atheists keep up the good work, that day may come.

I despise theists like Stephen Fincher who use scripture to deny people food while taking millions in farm subsidies. Stephen Fincher is a Welfare Queen. Did Fincher have to take a drug test to get his check?

If quoting scripture while you starve folks is not blasphemy, I do not know what is. Surely does not look like Fincher ever misses a meal.

Jewish law had provisions for feeding the poor and helpless, just like we do today. Jesus said that not one bit of the law would pass away. I wonder what Jesus would say to Stephen Fincher?
“When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field and hast forgotten a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it; it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow, that the Lord thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands." - Deuteronomy 24:19

Rep. Stephen Fincher 
"A man shows his character just in the way in which he deals with trifles--for then he is off his guard. This will often afford a good opportunity of observing the boundless egoism of man's nature, and his total lack of consideration for others; and if these defects show themselves in small things, or merely in his general demeanor, you will find that they also underlie his action in matters of importance, although he may disguise the fact. . . . Do not trust him beyond your door. He who is not afraid to break the laws of his own private circle, will break those of the State when he can do so with impunity." - Schopenhauer
