Rich Santorum Representing Bush's America: Part 4 Tuesday, September 06, 2005

Senator Rick Santorum, R - Pa, is a duly designated representative of George Bush's America. He's popular among the evangelicals, obviously the new chosen people of God, and tows the conservative line in the Senate. He's the junior senator from Pa. and is often at odds with the much more moderate Arlen Specter. Pittsburg TV station WTAE-TV reported during a segment of one of their newscasts recently:

Senator Rick Santorum is criticizing the government's emergency response to hurricane katrina victims. But he's also criticizing the ones who chose to ride out the storm. I mean, you have people who don't heed those warnings and then put people at risk as a result of not heeding those warnings. There may be a need to look at tougher penalties on those who decide to ride it out and understand that there are consequences to not leaving.

The CapitolBuzz blog had some interesting responses to the this segment. The most interesting was by someone called Joe Boo. He asserted that the people who didn't evacuate should be left on their own. That's a great Republican standpoint and but it certainly doesn't sound like the good Christian stand point. Would our brother Jesus have left the people to die? But the good Christians would in Bush's America.

Go get your Holy Bible. i'll wait. Now, find that parable of the Good Samaritan.

didja actually read it? Well, guess what. The man who needed help was bypassed by rich, well-born, well-connected, and very righteously 'holy' people. the one who stopped, took the risk of helping, went through trouble of helping, went to the expense of helping, and neither expected nor got reward for helping, was a man from Samaria (a Samaritan).

In the world and time of first century Judea, Samaria was a place known for poverty, crime, and low-born, shifty, suspicious, semi-foriegn people. They were (often) even a bit darker of skin than the 'better people' of Judea.

Hmm, like, just maybe, the sort of people living in poverty on the Gulf coast of Louisiana?

Not a damn thing has changed, except the clothes of the rich hypocrites.
