The Sermon of the Beatitudes
James Jacques Joseph Tissot
You can have the Lord Christ or you can have the Tea Party… you can’t have both… God or the Dollar? What shall it be?
And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.
But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Plain
Let’s keep this short… the Tea Party approves of this massive redistribution of wealth to the oligarchs… full stop. The richest 1 percent of the population held 9 percent of the wealth in 1980… they hold 24 percent today. Where did this money come from? It was stolen from working and middle class families through such things as lower wages and cutting of benefits (15 percent of the population isn’t covered by health insurance due to the greed of the rich).
John Whiteford and Anthony Nelson claim to be priests of the Orthodox Church, yet they support a movement whose ideology is deeply anti-Christian and against the very teachings of the Lord Christ Himself. Just because the teabaggers are anti-abortion doesn’t mean that they’re pro-life. The Tea Party is nothing but an apologia for the rape of everything that’s intrinsically good by the richest segment of the population. It’s throwing your kids into the fires of Moloch’s temple, full stop.
The Tea Party says:
It’s a great time to be rich!
Our Lord Christ says:
But woe unto you that are rich!
I seem to notice that these two positions are mutually contradictory and exclusive of one another. You can hold one or you can hold the other, but you cannot mix the two, they’re fire and water… I have made my choice. I stand for Christ and His Truth without reserve… I reject the ideology of the Tea Party/GOP utterly and completely as it goes against and contradicts His Truth. I should mention that His Holiness rejects the Tea Party’s Mammon worship too. Where do you stand?
