Maybe those ‘losers and lazy good for nothings’ are the only ones who get that the rest of us, who blindly follow the dictates of our overlords, systematically chain ourselves to our jobs and mortgages, maniacally strive to ‘keep up with the Joneses’ in constant search of delayed gratification, summer vacations, bigger homes, newer cars, retirements, and our eventual ‘heavens’ are in fact the real losers in this ratrace.

Great wisdom is found in unexpected places. Car Talk, from NPR is America's funniest auto mechanics take calls from weary car owners all over the country, and crack wise while they diagnose Dodges and dismiss Diahatsus.

Well, he isn't wrong...

Or, maybe those lazy good for nothings are simply lazy good for nothings!

@VicZinc Like Jesus

Jesus is many things - Son of God, Savior of mankind, etc - but never lazy or good for nothing.

@Budwick Jesus is many things - Son of God, Savior of mankind, etc - but never lazy or good for nothing.

I agree. Despite the fact that he didn't have a job or a home, he wandered around depending on the kindness of strangers for food and shelter.

@VicZinc Did he wash dishes at night? He gave up carpentry at 13.

He did wash a few feet!

It's so sad that you've rejected the most magnificent aspects of who Jesus is. I know you know that He came to fulfill prophecy, to draw attention to the glory of his Father, to preach, and to give His life for our salvation.

The deliberate rejection of God is a rebellion against God’s authority, purpose and instruction and results in the rejection of God’s servants and, ultimately, in the rejection of his Son. And, you work to turn others away from God. I'm no prophet, but I don't see this ending up well for you.

The point being that many conservative Christians call people like Jesus lazy losers just because they are not the son of god.

What's to say the panhandler in tattered clothes with no shoes is not the second coming?

Those damnable conservative Christians! They are constantly wanting to 'teach a man to fish' - while the lovely liberal non-believers are handing out government cheese!

Revelation 1:7 says, "Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him.” There will not be a person on earth who is unaware of Jesus' return. Jesus Himself describes the manner of His coming. Matthew 24:27 states that the return of Christ will be like the brightness of lightning illuminating the entire sky from the east to the west. Verses 30 and 31 of the same chapter describe Jesus coming with power and great glory and with the sound of a great trumpet, that awakens the righteous dead who are then gathered from the ends of the earth.

Hope you live to see it.

Wonder what your life would be like if instead of handing out loaves and fishes he had handed out kneading boards and fishing poles?

Oh yea of blinded faith. You cannot see what is in front of you.

Your eyes are sewn shout with your righteous babble and your dependence on the words of the scribes and the pharisees and those who taint your dreams with vivid and false hopes. Reality is right here, waiting for you. Love thy brother as thyself. That is all you need to know.

I can see you quite well Vic. Communists have worked for over a century to enslave the weak to accept their fate and grovel for whatever the elite might hand out.

Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his own hands, so that he may have something to share with anyone in need.

It's hard to find work when you are constantly being beaten down and reminded that you are lazy loser.

@VicZinc It's hard to find work when you are constantly being beaten down and reminded that you are lazy loser.

Will government cheese teach him how to find a job? Will accepting government cheese month after month improve his self esteem? Or simply validate his self loathing?

@Budwick Will government cheese teach him how to find a job? Will accepting government cheese month after month improve his...

It will keep him from starving so he will have strength to look for a job.

It would be better to offer job training services. Better yet offer him a job. Sweeping the streets would be a good start.

But meanwhile, what are you going to do with the cheese? Throw it away? It is freaking 'surplus' cheese, nobody wants to buy it and it cost money to store it.

@Budwick There will always be poor and hungry people Vic, democrats see to that.

I suspect you are correct. All I am saying is Jesus was one of them.

@VicZinc I suspect you are correct. All I am saying is Jesus was one of them.

If that's all you would have said, we could have saved an awful lot of time. You're right, Jesus was economically poor.

@VicZinc I did, you took it somewhere else.

No, that is incorrect. You brought up Jesus and suggested he didn't work.

@Budwick No, that is incorrect. You brought up Jesus and suggested he didn't work.

He didn't. Not in the conventional sense that you seem to think welfare moms should.

Get a job at McDonald's or cleaning toilets or something - he was a bum by your definition.

@VicZinc He didn't. Not in the conventional sense that you seem to think welfare moms should. Get a job at McDonald's or...

The Son of God was unconventional? Wow, there's a news flash!

So, you want to bust His chops for spending His time doing God's work and literally in the same breath ensure that government provides for welfare moms. God forbid they should actually perform work!

@VicZinc Not sure if you are a hypocrite, a zealot or both

Ooops - careful there Vic - you're getting pretty close to calling names and you know how you feel about PC!
