Liberals have gotten religion again since tax cuts have passed the House and Senate. Some of them are claiming that God would not approve of people getting to keep more of their property to use as they please, including helping those less fortunate through private and charitable channels.

They were reading Bible verses about caring for the poor, and doing it so loudly that their voices could be heard at the doors of senators’ office suites nine stories above.”

Joel McDurmon describes the scene:
At one point in the demonstration, one of the priestesses declared, “Senators, we put you on notice: your souls are in danger, and this is your final warning”—as if any single one of these liberal theologians really believed in a final judgment.Then, one of them read from Isaiah: “you are a city full of murderers” (Isa. 1:21).
