Talk about wanting to have it both ways. The left is really upset with President Trump’s budget. They claim it is not Christian. This seems like it is a coordinated talking point considering how quickly so many people are throwing it out. But check out these tweets in opposition to the President’s budget.

@EWErickson Trying to rationalize someone calling themselves a devout Christian and supporting the elimination of Meals on Wheels.

@EWErickson i read your piece. Full of shit. It’s an atheist budget. Nothing Christian about it, as is your defense of it.

I suppose it is natural to think this sort of thing with government is your god. Cutting the budget is cutting god.
For those of you who still cannot fathom it, the government cutting social welfare spending is perfectly reconcilable with Christianity. Christians believe they and the church have the obligation and we help take care of the poor through our tithes, offerings, and volunteering. In fact, I dare say the church and local community take care of the poor and elderly better than the federal government and we would probably see a vast improvement in the situation if the federal government got out of the way.
The reality is that the church has largely abdicated responsibility to the government and should take it back.
