I employ quotation marks because by Obama’s own citation, Jesus said “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required”.
Ahem: not so Christian
So I suppose it was just AN OVERSIGHT that THE OBAMAS DONATED ONLY ONE PERCENT OF THE INCOME TO CHARITY from 2000-2004.
Because that’s not quite enough to keep my brother. If “much shall be required,” well, ONE PERCENT IS NOT MUCH.
These weren’t exactly lean years. According to previous reports you may remember, the Obamas earned $1.2 million from 200-2004, parting with a mere $10,772 for the least of these.
If this is loving thy neighbor, then I’m glad I wasn’t the poor guy living next to the Obamas.
It appears, though, that the Obamas got religion on charity, shall we say, once it occurred to him to run for president. For the 2005 tax year – which he would have filed in early 2006, when he was surely thinking hard about making a run – the Obamas suddenly decided that “much more shall be required.” They began donating about five percent of their income, which was vastly increased by his book sales, to charity.
So to my fury over the president blurring the separation of church and state, add contempt for his rank hypocrisy. What will it take, libs, to persuade you what a fraud he is? More than this?
Then you’re hopeless.
