So here's my question to my religious conservative friends:  How do you square the knot in your ideological outlook between Christian charity and compassion for your fellow human beings (or at least countrymen and women) and your desire to fuel the income gap in America?  I don't recall Jesus teaching that Rome should cut the capital gains taxes on the wealthy so that the poor will do better.  I'm not trying to be confrontational, or even disrespectful when I say I find the disconnect at worst delusional, and at best hypocritical.  It would seem that Jesus saying "blessed are the poor" is maybe the driving force - by making more poor people, we are in effect "saving" more people for heaven?
