Sarah Palin recently criticized Colin Kaepernick for “another political stunt” when he made a $50,000 charitable contribution to Meals on Wheels. Of course Palin would be outraged at the thought of providing food for hungry.
“Millions of seniors nationwide are struggling with hunger, isolation and the ability to pay for basic living needs. …”
The number of seniors in our country will grow exponentially over the coming years. Meals on Wheels is a proven public-private partnership that effectively addresses the challenges of aging by promoting health and improving quality of life for our nation’s most vulnerable seniors. By leveraging the existing Meals on Wheels network,” …tax payers save …”billions in tax dollars by keeping them ( seniors) out of more costly healthcare alternatives.”
In Alaska alone, over 20% of seniors live in, or near poverty. Over 8 million dollars, that support the 10 million dollar program in Alaska, are charitable donations. Federal tax dollars, that previously supported the program accounted for less than one-forth of the budget in Alaska. That was BEFORE the proposed cuts by Donald Trump. Thus Palin is objecting to a charitable donation by a Christian trying to provide food for hungry. What could possibly be more “Christian” that feeding the hungry?
Perhaps Palin herself should engage in this type of “political stunt”. It was just yesterday that Palin was suggesting that God wants his disciples to carry guns.
God must have been playing another April Fools on Matthew when he said:
” For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Imagine the absurdity of Sarah promoting the starvation of the poor, and complaining when someone other than the government tries to help. Imagine shooting the starving people when they complain that they are hungry!
