"Rangel's Bible Says
Joshua Claybourn at 11:47 AM

Michelle Malkin (via Three Bad Fingers) notes that Rep. Charlie Rangel has an interesting take on Biblical teaching revealed on MSNBC last Thursday:

MATTHEWS: I mean, Charlie, Jesus didn‘t hang around with the swells, the rich people.

RANGEL: Well, he said the rich are going straight to hell.

With that in mind I took a look at Rangel's personal finances at OpenSecrets.org. His millions in income and assets suggest he may want to alter his lifestyle, or be prepared for a rather uncomfortable eternity."

JB here: The phrase "the pot calling the kettle black" comes to mind. But it seems that politicians appear to be, for the most part, all about hypocrisy. Of course, that's what the Sadducees and the Pharisees were all about. I don't think people have ever really changed.
