The gospel according to Becky

Filed under: Opinion — Peregrin @ 4:05 pm

Becky Benson, 56, traveled [to the Glenn Beck rally] from Orlando, Florida, because, she said, “we believe in Jesus Christ,” and Jesus, she said, would not have agreed with the economic stimulus package, bank bailouts and welfare. “You cannot sit and expect someone to hand out to you,” she said. “You don’t spend your way out of debt.”

— The New York Times, Aug. 28

And when it was evening, His disciples came to him, saying, “This is a desert place and the time is now past. Send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves victuals.”

But Jesus said unto them, “They need not depart. Give ye them to eat.”

And they said unto him, “We have here but five loaves and two fishes.”

And he said, “Bring them hither to me.”

And lo, he himself ate up both the fish and three of the five loaves, having worked up a powerful hunger.

And for the remaining two loaves, he ordered them auctioned on eBay, saying unto his disciples, “You cannot sit and expect someone to hand out to you. Hunger can be a positive motivator.”

  1. Good one, Peregrin. And let’s not forget how wealthy Jesus got from selling wine made from water! ;)
