At the Democrat Party’s summer meeting, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi advised 2020 Dems that they need to be prepared to “throw a punch, for the children.” But Pelosi wasn’t the only person saying things that raised eyebrows, as evidenced by this claim that got a standing ovation from DNC chair Tom Perez:
"If someone calls it socialism, then we must compel them to acknowledge that the Bible must then promote socialism, because Jesus offered free health care to everyone, and he never charged a leper a co-pay."- DNC speaker Rev. William Barber

Wow. Rep. Dan Crenshaw had some things to say about that:
Deliberate misreading of Biblical principles by DNC to promote socialism. 👇
The Bible teaches charity with one’s own time and money.
Socialism teaches charity with other people’s time and money.
So….not the same thing. https://t.co/9Z9bUQNntX

There is a very big difference between what Jesus did (charity) and socialism (theft)

Forcefully taking resources from one group of people to give "charity" to another group of people is not Christian nor is it charity. https://t.co/gAHhFQ9gaf

I don’t remember Jesus putting a gun to anyone’s head to MAKE them provide free healthcare to anyone. Correct me if I’m wrong. I do remember him being put to death by a powerful government.
