Of Rats and Men

While claiming a separation of church and state - which does not exist in the U.S. Constitution, it is a communist idea - they claim that government confiscation of your funds - also know as taxation - and redistributing it to others is somehow biblical. Social justice. It is not.

All such giving in the Bible - including the tithe - is 100% voluntary. There was no IRS in ancient Israel. It is between you and God, it's a personal thing. If God wanted to force you to be generous He would have given you instinct. Humans have free will, and we are meant to exercise free will in a free society for our spiritual growth. Don't ever choose to put yourself under the unfettered control of a government, king, or dictator. Not even to save the Earth.

As for separation of church and state, the U.S. Constitution, Amendment 1 states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The U.S. government is supposed to be religiously neutral, not rabidly anti-Christian. The U.S. government can't control religion and neither can it put up a wall to keep Christians out of the public discourse. And the U.S. government cannot become the religion and in a Socialist/Marxist/Communist state, the government IS the religion. In Islam, the religion is the government. Neither are compatible with the U.S. Constitution.
