"Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,[a] you did it to me."

Where does this Christian Matthew 25:34-40 ideology fit in?
The thing for me is that we know the goal of a bullet (military weapons) is to kill (mass killings)... reducing or omitting human services is Trumps benign version of killing off the wounded.
U.S. infant mortality rate worse than other countries:
"The U.S. lags behind other developed countries because there remain significant gaps in access to and utilization of prenatal and preconception care,"
If Trump care is to pass, 14 million will lose their health insurance. Will the infant mortality rate climb?
Yesterday I told my son about Trumps plans to cut human services.My sons' response was " If Trump cut human services then crime will go up and then Trump will blame them for the crimes." Soon, next to Trump Hotel we will have Trump Prison.
"That stuff isn't really in there." Many Christians to whom I've quoted or related the stories of the bible to. Now that that is settled let's go pick some more cherries!
