David Barton: Jesus Opposed the Minimum Wage
As we noted yesterday in our post about Bryan Fischer interviewing Rep. Michele Bachmann, a group of conservative leaders - including Bachmann, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Haley Barbour, and David Barton - have gathered for a Religious Right event in Iowa aimed at mobilizing pastors called “Rediscover God In America.”
The event is being webcast by the American Family Association and last night David Barton got the festivities underway by explaining to the audience that all of our economic and tax policies ought to be dictated by the Bible … and that means getting rid of the minimum wage because it was opposed by Jesus:
If there’s one thing we know about Jesus, it’s that he hated the poor and the sick and forbade us to clothe the naked. And who could forget when he berated the moneychangers in thetemple— for not setting up in a more prominent place? Location, location, location!
Weapons grade crazy in video.
