Silky Pony: Jesus "appalled" at America's greed

From Breitbart/AP:
Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school.

Edwards, in an interview with the Web site Beliefnet.com, said Jesus would be most upset with the selfishness of Americans and the country's willingness to go to war "when it's not necessary."

"I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs," Edwards told the site. "I think he would be appalled, actually."

Ignoring the obvious and indisuptable fact that America is the most generous nation on the planet, here's guessing that when Edwards laments America's greed and selfishness, he doesn't think the Almighty would consider Edwards' career of corporate extortion, his lavish limousine liberal lifestyle, or his newly-built big #ss energy-hog 28k square foot NC mansion to be products of "greed" or "selfishness".

I won't begrudge the man his money, but I will damned sure begrudge the hypocrite for living one way while imploring us to live another way. We've seen that from the leftards recently, haven't we?

As for his "let's let kids pray in school", that will send chills down the backs of the leftist base! There has been an intense fight over the decades to remove prayer from anything school-related, and whether you support that fight or not, don't you think it's insulting for Silky Pony here to pretend to want some of it back? Seriously, who in the hell does he think he's fooling? Well, considering he has made a living over fooling jurors into thinking he can channel the spirit of the unborn, and considering he did hoodwink the voters of NC to vote for him in 1998 (they wised up in 2004), and considering that he convinced a fair number of people that he and John Kerry would make paralyzed people walk again, I suppose he does think he could pull the wool over some more eyes yet again...well, except for Jesus' eyes.
