  •  I don't know what chapter/verse (5+ / 0-)

    it was, but in the New Testament (and I think it's in one of the first four gospels, but my memory could very well be wrong: a Google search should turn it up) Christ says "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's and render unto God what is God's."

    This is usually interpreted in liberal Protestantism as "Ya gotta pay yer taxes."

    You might want to find that chapter and verse...and invite your BiL and his kids to read it (w/out beating them over the head, of course).

    Over the past 30-odd years, the Democrats have moved to the right, and the Republicans have moved into a mental hospital. --Bill Maher

    •  I shall leave it to the keepers of the Gospel (5+ / 0-)

      to quote chapter and verse, but I shall be so bold as to say what He meant.

      His point was simple.  We live in our times, and we have to assimilate here.  The point was to be part of society (taxes were the largest part then), but do good by everyone.  Is that so hard to do?

      I have several stories to tell about doing good to people who wanted to see me imprisoned.

      Warmest regards,

      Doc

      I have a new, secret crush. Nothing will come of it, but it is fun.
