Public Forum: Raising taxes a Christian act?

The cuts in government programs for the uneducated, the jobless and the needy are coming down the pike at a fast pace and anyone who is unfortunate, in any way, is going to be feeling a lot of pain.

I have a suggestion for all those religious, conservative, tea sipping Republicans out there, who seem to constantly insist that there be no higher taxes. And who also think that the idea of raising taxes on higher income people is a Socialistic and unfair attempt to redistribute the wealth of the country.

Maybe you should give this whole thing another thought. Try to start thinking of raising taxes as a Christian and fair attempt to redistribute the pain of the unfortunate.
