“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.” Stephen Colbert
Check out what Jesus said about the poor:
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “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.’ (Matthew 25:37-40, New International Version)

America is not a Religious country. We are too diverse a country to be religious,
Didn’t say it was. Cobert’s comment is really more of about those who claim to be Christians but don’t care about others.
I love Colbert’s take on things. I heard him say this quote and I thought, “Right on!”
I read somewhere that unless faith effects your daily life it is pointless.
