Cookies and the Federal Budget
"Martin Luther King said more than 40 years ago that every time a bomb goes off overseas, we can feel the second impact of that bomb as we watch our schools crumble and our health care system go up in flames. As Dr. King said, 'A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.'" - Shane Claiborne
And then there's this article from Christianity Today. link
It seems Evangelical Christians prefer cutting federal spending that supports global programs to fight starvation and malaria rather than cutting the military budget.
Yes, what you just read is true. Read the article.
I really don't expect a secular government to follow the teachings of Jesus. I do however expect a little more out of Evangelical Christians. Oh well...
