The  “Rediscovering God in America” conference underway now in Iowa. Earlier Mile Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, and Haley Barbour addressed the conference. Huckabee and Barbour used their speeches to call for a return to D.A.D.T.

David Barton is a purported "Expert" historian/religious scholar who also addressed the “Rediscovering God in America” conference. David Barton explained how progressive taxation in all of its forms are "anti-biblical".

"The Bible is so good on economic issues and specifically on taxation issues that we used to know what kind of taxes are good and what kind of taxes are bad." ~ David Barton

1. God hates Capital Gains Taxes

2. God hates Progressive Income Taxes

3. God hates Estate Taxes

4. God hates the Minimum Wage

How could my Sunday School teachers have gotten some of the main tenets from the Bible so backwards? Jesus has a great Love for making rich people even richer. Redressing inequality, and making sure the poor are paid fairly are anti-biblical!

I'm in shock.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
