Family Research Council: There is “nothing more Christian” than cutting Food Stamps


After the GOP controlled House approved a bill that would cut the food stamp program by $39B over the next ten years last week, the anti-gay conservative hate group The Family Research Council has sent out one of its only black employees “senior fellow” Ken Blackwell (no strategy there) to make the media rounds to back up the SNAP cuts and defend the fact that the elderly, poor and children will be going hungry because it’s the “Christian” thing to do.

Christian Post:

“I think through empowering others and creating self-sufficiency…there within lies the path to sense of worthiness,” Blackwell told CP. “When I was growing up, there was fundamental belief, that there were times in people’s life when they needed a hand up…there were temporariness to hose programs, where they were structured so that they didn’t breed so that they didn’t breed dependency.” Blackwell also suggested that there was “nothing more Christian” than “not locking people into a permanent dependency on government handouts, but making sure they are participants in their own upliftment and empowerment so that they in fact through the dignity of work and can break from the plantation of big government.”

To the GOP and the FRC obviously here’s nothing more Christian than starving the elderly, disabled, and children to death.

How very Nazi of them.
