It’s all summed up in James 2.  If your brother or sister comes to you hungry and naked, it’s not enough to say, “Go in faith.” You feed and clothe them because faith without works is dead.  Republicans give recitations about faith, but when it comes time to fulfill Matthew 25, doing for the least of these, to them there is something wrong with feeding people when they are hungry.  This is not the Christian way to do things.  Cuts in the food stamp program are an abomination.
