GOP Thinking: South Carolina Republican Compares the Poor to 'Stray Animals'

AltTulsa loves those South Carolina conservatives. The state that produced Dixiecrat Strom Thurman and the Appalachian Trail hiker (ha!) Gov. Mark Sanford has no shortage of grandstanding blowhards.

The most recent example is Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, a candidate for governor who—in a burst of candor—complained about (what else?) poor people. Turns out, he says, that they breed! (Who knew?)

From The State in Columbia:
Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer has compared giving people government assistance to "feeding stray animals."
Bauer, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor, made his remarks during a town hall meeting in Fountain Inn that included state lawmakers and about 115 residents.
To be fair, he has tried to explain what he now says he really meant.

I can't understand how those politicians who presume to hold forth on Christian principles would say something like this.

Evidently, they would not feed Jesus Himself, and turn Him away as just another 'stray'.

Lord, have mercy.
