Is this rich, or what? Joy Behar has been nominally "religious" in the past, only alluding to the fact that she's Catholic, but when it comes to all others besides herself (see "Republicans" or "Conservatives"), religion has always been a bad thing.

Yet today she seems to go whole-hog (pun intended) to defend Obama's recent National Prayer Day Breakfast speech, where he tries to invoke scripture, saying that Jesus Christ would be in favor of his wealth redistribution plans via increased taxes on the wealthy, i.e.,"socialism." And Joy finds Jesus.

She argues with Elisabeth Hasselbeck that the right must have forgotten the "meek shal inherit the earth" part of the bible.


Joy, you should be very careful citing scripture, especially if you don't know it yourself.

What does the meek inheriting the earth have to do with Jesus supporting taxing the wealthy? What about the passage from 2 Thessalonians, 3:10 "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat?"

Joy, thou doth not knowest where thy speaketh from.

This should come as no surprise to anyone, mostly to Joy. Admit it, Joy...Elisabeth got the best of you, and you couldn't stand it. Sadly I think you believe God speaks against "false profits," instead of "false prophets." Unfortunately you probably don't know any better. Nevertheless, I don't feel sorry for you one bit. It's so obvious when you get angry when you lose arguments... and OH, DO I LOVE THOSE MOMENTS!
