The problem with these folks is that they have no ethical grounding. Consider their latest posts about Kris Jordan, county commissioner and candidate for state representative:
Let me provide a little background.

"Your penurius nature runs afowl of what the Christian Bible tells us to do:
A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
You might want to work that in sometime."
Jordan does not believe that county tax dollars should be used to purchase fruit, refreshments and other amenities for the Delaware County Employee Health and Safety Fair. The DCPR feels that Jordan -- a Christian and government official -- must vote to give the tax money of county residents for the benefit of county employees.
In attempt to further their point, DCPR notes that some of these county folks will be fasting for 12 hours in order to get an accurate reading on their blood work.
1. Coveting others property -- DCPR feels that the Bible states that it is OK for folks to covet that which is not theirs; tax dollars in this instance.
2. Theft -- DCPR feels that the Bible states that some may rightfully thieve the property of others through the power of the government.
DCPR misses on both counts.
Jordan is absolutely correct, and he voted as a Christian. The county commissioners should not acquiesce to those who covet, and they should not steal bread from the plate of one in order to place it on the plate of another.
If the DCPR folks believe that a true service opportunity exists, they should provide the nourishment just as the Bible instructs. They should be the generous men and women who prosper -- "he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed."
Instead, DCPR views the world through coveting eyes and demands that others be forced to pay for their good deeds. Hmmm.
