Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) has a bone to pick with Republicans who claim allegiance to Christianity, yet support the GOP Medicare plan. In an appearance on MSNBC yesterday, the congressman believes that these individuals are acting contrary to Christian doctrine, as they continue to make life more difficult for the poor and those in need. He said:

“I always find it very interesting that people talk all about their from Christianity and all these other religions that teach love. All that teach taking care of the poor. All of which talk about doing for the least of these. Yet, they continue to heap burden upon burden upon people who can stand it the least.”

Last week The Blaze covered Mark Shields’ statement that low taxes are also un-American. Apparently, disagreement with Democratic policies is now the litmus test for being opposed to the American way of life. Who knew?
