Something the Republicans should read (ro have read and memorized)

I think it's kind of strange that the Republicans appeal to the Christian right wingers. They must only use parts of the bible that make what they say sound really "right'.

Today in one of the readings at Mass (for non-Catholics who don't know, at every mass there are three readings from the Bible, both the old and new testament - so much for those who say Catholics don't "know" anything about the Bible)

Today's first reading was from Deuteronomy Chapter 4:1-2, This is only part of the entire reading.

"And now, O Israel, listen carefully to these laws I teach you, and obey them if you want to live and enter into and possess the land given you by the Lord God of your ancestors. Do not add other laws or subtract from these; just obey them for they are from the Lord your God."

The secord reading is from the New Testament, James chapter 1: 27 I think Paul Ryan should read this part before gutting Social Security and Medicare.

'The Christian who is pure and without fault, from God the Father's point of view, is the one who takes care of orphans and windows, and who ramains true to the Lord -- not soiled and dirtied by his contacts with the world"

The third reading is New Testament, Mark: 14-15 and 21-23. I think Mr. Romney should pay attention to the last part.

"And then Jesus called to the crowd to come and hear. "All of you listen", he said," and try to understand. Your souls aren't harmed by what you eat, but by what you think and say."

"For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts of lust, theft, murder, adultery, wanting what belongs to others, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, pride and all other folly. All these vile things come from within they are what pollute you and make you unfit for God."

In case these quotes don't fit your bible word for word, I took mine from my personal bible The Catholic Living Bible published in 1971, Imprimatur 1976. The wording in your bible may differ, but the sentiment is the same.

Basically all three readings concern being worldly and lying and being deceitful and wanting what others have. So how can someone in the business of destroying companies for a living say he's living by the bible? I can't reconcile his actions and his supposed beleif. Sorry, maybe it's jsut me. Maybe someone can tell me about the plank in my eye while I point out the splinter in his (another bible reference) but I doubt it.
