Golden Rule anyone?

"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 have 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

Sadly, I read an article a few weeks ago where some fundies gave a whole long justification with Bible quotes about why the government shouldn't be involved. They are quick to say that such charity should be private but how much do any of them really do? And what strings do they place on their help?
