Let's REALLY take the Bible seriously

Take a look at this:

The Bible contains something like 2,000 references to the poor and the believer's responsibility for the poor. Sadly, that obligation seems not to have trickled down into public policy.

-- Randall Balmer

And remember, Jesus said not word one about homosexuality. Not a single word. But he had a lot to say about our responsibility to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. He also said it was easier for a camel to get through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into the Kingdom of Heaven. I really don't understand these evangelicals and fundamentalists who go on and on about Jesus and yet seem not to take any notice of what the man actually said.
