    The old Bible has Jesus saying that anyone who offends a child is going to get it from his Dad.

    The new Bible has Jesus saying that anyone who causes a child to sin is going to get it from his Dad.

    The difference between the old version of Matthew 18:6 and the new version appears to be that hurting children is now OK, especially if harming them causes them not to sin.

    And here's the GOP reasoning for kicking kids off food assistance being "preventing them from sinning":

    1. Food assistance programs are socialist
    1. Socialism is Communism
    1. Communism is of the Devil

    Therefore, keeping kids out of food assistance programs keeps them away from the Devil, and therefore prevents them from sinning.  If you have to beat them to keep them out of food assistance, all the better.
