Some on the left have attempted to draw comparisons between this and PPP loans, arguing that Republicans who received PPP loans were being disingenuous in their criticism of the Biden bailout. However, as Sister Toldjah, one of my colleagues, stated, the PPP program was approved by Congress. Because the government’s lockdowns interfered with people’s capacity to work, it was also accessible to anybody. It wasn’t about making Americans foot the bill for debts that other people willingly took on.
But when he likened Joe Biden to Jesus and the miracle of the loaves and the fishes, former professional basketball coach and NBA commentator Stan Van Gundy went a step farther.
Its caption said, “Jesus’s miracle of the loaves and fishes was a smack in the face to all the folks who packed their own lunch,” and Van Gundy referred to it as “Republican reasoning.”
It did not turn out well, as Republicans and others attacked Van Gundy and pointed out how inaccurate the parallel was.
Let’s start by stating that it is disrespectful and more than a reach to compare Jesus’ miracle of feeding people to the muddled unlawful act of Joe Biden buying votes. Both Joe Biden and the government are not Jesus.
The fact that Jesus produced the loaves and fishes was a miracle. He did not commit theft from the taxpayers in order to force them to cover the obligations of others. He omitted to mention that those who brought lunch had to cover the cost of feeding everyone else. He did not only give out the loaves and fish to some of the attendees. He didn’t distribute the food to get them to vote for him.
The government, unlike Jesus, cannot use miracles or cause things to appear out of thin air. Debt doesn’t just vanish. Everything has a price, and in this instance, we are all responsible for paying for Biden’s attempt to purchase votes in the midterm elections.
Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that Jesus implied that we all have to foot the bill for other people’s gender studies degrees via his deeds.
When left-leaning people attempt to use Jesus the way they want to, it’s amusing. However, the left usually criticizes any mention of Jesus or God as advocating for a Christian theocracy.
