Devout Christian Congressman and Whited Sepulchre Stephen Fincher Wants Poor People to Starve, as Jesus Instructs

May 20, 2013

FincherHow very Christlike Stephen Fincher is, don’t you think?

The desperate economic crisis created by the Mammon-worship of Fincher and thousands like him has resulted in the creation of countless poor people with no recourse but food stamps. Fincher assumes that none of them really “want to work,” and therefore that they should simply starve. (See the story in Meet the Republican [surprise, surprse] who is demanding that the government let poor people starve.)

Fincher trumpets, righteously, from the Bible:

this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat – 2 Thess. 3:10

Fincher is apparently unaware of how Jesus miraculously fed a multitude of five thousand people when they were hungry–somehow forgetting to ask any of them if they had “worked for it.” (Matthew 14:14-21) Or how about other words of Jesus (emphasis mine):

But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. (Luke 14:13,14)

I guess good little Christian Stephen Fincher wants his recompense here and now, by god.

And speaking of “sucking off the government teat,” Mr. Fincher, from that article linked above…

Fincher himself is a poster boy for government dependency. It’s not just that he’s benefited here and there from some government help. That sort of low-level hypocrisy is almost to be expected from these types. But Fincher has received millions – $3.2 million as of June 2010 – in federal crop subsidies. The people who refer to themselves as Tea Partiers threatened to derail his candidacy over this, but then they realized that they have no principles, and supported him anyway. He’s now a member of the “Tea Party Caucus,” which, amazingly, is something that actually exists. Fincher’s brother and father also snatched another $6.7 million in subsidies as Stephen geared up to run for Congress on a platform of eliminating “wasteful government spending.” The “wasteful spending” that he had in mind, of course, was that which serves policy aims with which he disagrees, such as keeping poor people alive.

Remember what Jesus said about that sort of thing?

For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again…A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (Matthew 7:2, 18-23)

One wonders how whited sepulchres like good little Christian Congressman Stephen Fincher can open their mouths without their heads bursting into flame. One also wishes one could be there on judgement day, to watch them not get what they proudly assume they deserve, but get what they really deserve instead.

One also wonders how the United States still survives, when the right-wing Christian rot has sunk so deeply into its supporting timbers. Can’t be long now until at last they collapse. And the blood of even more millions will be on proud, self-righteous, chest-beating, judgemental little Christian Stephen Fincher’s hands.
