I am, of course, in no way giving in to the christianist myth that America is a ‘christian nation. That having been said….
Stephen Colbert had some fun at Bill O’Reilly’s expense over his bizarre column claiming Jesus wasn’t all that concerned about the poor. The capper:
Colbert: Because if this is gonna be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we’ve got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition — and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.
