TIME Author: Jesus Advocated Tax Rates Up to 100%, So Paul Ryan’s Budget Could Be ‘Un-Christian’


Erika Christakis

TIME author Erika Christakis asked readers Tuesday whether Paul Ryan’s budget is “un-Christian,” and whether Christians really should be voting for the Romney-Ryan ticket.

What does she mean? Christakis began (all subsequent emphasis added):

Americans often tell pollsters they yearn for a return to the Christian principles on which the U.S. was founded. If so, they should take a closer look at the Mitt Romney–Paul Ryan ticket. Jesus’ teachings regarding wealth are nowhere to be found in Ryan’s budget proposal.

As near as we can tell, Jesus would advocate a tax rate somewhere between 50% (in the vein of “If you have two coats, give one to the man who has none”) and 100% (if you want to get into heaven, be poor). Mostly, he suggested giving all your money up for the benefit of others. And Jesus made no distinction between the deserving and undeserving poor; his love and generosity ...

Jesus is addressing how we should treat other individuals. It has nothing to did with giving to government.

"TIME author Erika Christakis asked readers Tuesday whether Paul Ryan’s budget is “un-Christian,”"

Another little gem of Erika Christakis is...
"In a religion-normative society, is it surprising that I still feel a sense of shame when I try to express my wobbly beliefs? It’s hard to be so ‘other.’ And it’s not as if I want to ditch everything about being an Episcopalian either: the liturgy, the history, the music, the good deeds… I love Jesus, too. I do! I just don’t see why he has to be the Son of God. Isn’t it enough to let him be greatest prophet-philosopher the world has ever seen?"
