Would Jesus do got a lot of play this week will according to President Obama he would tax the rich listen to his comments from a prayer breakfast this past week.
I think to myself.
If I'm going to give something up -- somebody who's been extraordinarily blessed.
Some of the tax breaks that I enjoy.
I actually think that's gonna make economic sense but for me as a Christian.
It also coincides reduces -- that.
-- to whom much is given.
Much -- required.
I got a lot of play this week of course -- should the president be invoking Jesus while trying to sell tax plan.
-- -- -- Fox News contributor Stephen Crowder nice to see this morning Stephen welcome.
Good to see you we should both be in church this morning so you have some -- to do Clayton and I have a job to do so I'll do that first.
Steve let me ask you as a Christian you are Christian.
What did you think when you heard the president saying that the -- that it would be that's what Jesus would want is to tax the rich.
-- -- a couple of things first with these really about you know being more charitable he could increase his own personal charitable donations to more than a whopping.
1% he might be the least giving president we've ever seen.
Possibly the least giving person office outside of Joseph Biden but I think he's the most selfish person this side of Ebenezer Scrooge.
Well -- hear this that they're really only three possible outcomes because he's sort of been invoking this for a lot of reasons now the name of Jesus.
One either -- first let's assume by the way.
That he is telling the truth even -- those folks in Discovery Channel have more chance of finding squads but you have defining Obama at a church looks like he's got got a -- when he really is praying all the time when making good decisions.
That just proves to me.
That I've got the wrong guy on the phone when I'm praying.
And that if anything else I along with most pastors and probably the Christians are possibly -- that's the beat this guy.
Should go back to run.
Burning the taxpayer funded in sense to whatever pagan Warren Beatty he's -- -- get -- -- Jesus or.
This guy's lying to us simply trying to score political points what you see with Barack Obama a lot needs rapidly ticked off the Christian voter base so he probably needs to appeal -- a little bit.
All of the left to say as saying people are jumping on this too quickly and that there is a problem with some of what the president said which -- look.
He didn't say that Jesus would tax -- she said it coincides.
With jesus' teachings those were his words it coincides with jesus' teachings.
Differ on who unto whom much is given much -- be required the idea that look you're given a lot.
You should do a little bit more for your community what he say -- that.
I think that is true and you know what he also says that you should be -- 10% of you see in the Bible.
Given the Caesar which is seniors and that and to god which is God's Barack Obama believes.
Given all the -- -- I don't have a problem with somebody saying hey my faith.
Dictates my policy my faith dictates every decision that I make in my life so it's going to be a part of it -- set up with George Bush in the presidential prayer team having that Obama does not have.
I have a problem any of that what I do have a problem with is being lied to when you say well I'm doing this because Jesus wants me to.
Really does Jesus want to reverse the Mexico City policy where essentially we're now paying for abortions overseas because I don't know how we feel about that.
And it seems to be that -- he's diametrically opposed to -- so.
How with urine that direct contact with the lord -- get it wrong that often it sounds to me like he's playing a bad game of telephone.
Or telephone from nursery school thank Stephen great to see is -- it ended up becoming -- filthy game it did it did.
I won't go there it.
