Today’s quote


That bread which you keep belongs to the hungry; that coat which you preserve in your wardrobe, to the naked; those shoes which are rotting in your possession, to the shoeless; that gold which you have hidden in the ground, to the needy. Wherefore, as often as you were able to help others, and refused, so often did you do them wrong.

Basil of Caesarea

I post this Just because I got disturbed, surfing through the blogs, at seeing someone proffering as a Christian value the idea that taxation is theft, specifically when the tax money benefits the needy. That is a modern, heretical, anti-Christian notion promoted by the Pharisees and the Sadducees of our culture. Strange, because if they read the New Testament they would see that Jesus himself refused on more than one occasion to support an anti-tax position.
