The Greatest Betrayal

Most of the conservative Republicans in the House, the ones who yesterday refused to include food programs for the poor in the farm bill where it has for many decades been embedded and thereby endangered passage of any money to deal with hunger in this country, publicly and loudly proclaim at every opportunity that they are fervent, passionate Christians. But having been raised in a Christian household, and having read my bible more than a few times over the years, it is impossible not to conclude that either these Republicans have not bothered to read the book they claim to believe in. Either that, or their reading comprehension skills are remarkably low.
