Lawrence O’ Donnell says Jesus was “the First Recorded Advocate of a Progressive Income Tax.”
And then O’Donnell calls those against progressive income taxes “the damned.” Yup. The damned. He talks about Jesus praising the widow who puts in all she has. Well, I’m thinking wouldn’t that make Jesus an advocate of soaking the poor, rather than the rich as O’Donnell believes. But Jesus was actually talking about GIVING, not TAKING, which is what O’Donnell is prescribing.
Honestly, there’s no way to watch this and come away with any other thought than O’Donnell is completely insane. I’m actually not kidding. Check it out.
