Dreher's Monty Burns Republicans

The House Republicans have loaded up the Farm Bill with all kinds of cash to corporate big agra while completely cutting out any food aid to the poorest among us.  But this is nothing new:  It's been going on for 50 years which is why the food stamp program was tied to the farm bill 40 years ago.

FINALLY! A self identified Christian conservative points out the obvious.

The American Conservative's Rod Dreher says what no one else inside the so-called Christian conservative movement has the, um,...well Christianity to say,
You know who needs to find their voice and use it right now? Conservative Christian pastors and leaders. Christians need to seriously reconsider uncritical support for a political party that prioritizes lavishing subsidies on the agribusiness rich while telling the poor to sit quietly and wait for scraps.
There is no question where Jesus falls on this issue, but those who are constantly moralizing in his name seem to have lost their morality.
