Render Unto Caesar...

Dorothy Day's take on today's Gospel reading, Mt 22:15-21

"Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God."

"If we render unto God what belongs to God, there will be damned little left over for Caesar."

Hi William.

Hey, what did Dorothy Day and "Joe the Plumber" have in common?

Back taxes owed.

Dorothy Day told the IRS investigators interrogating her income, to hurry up and tell her how much they believed she owed, so she would know how much she wasn't going to pay them.

Did a post disappear?

Garpu said...

Yeah, did something go poof?

Jeff said...

Yeah, I whacked out a couple. Tired of politics and rants.

For now.

Dude, you whacked Chrissie Hynde. That's probably against the law in some states. Like O-H-I-O.

I didn't think you were ranting, just for the record.

I rant, but I didn't think you were ranting.

Yeah, I suppose I could have left Chrissie, but I also deleted 'Red Menace!', because it was a bit too personal, and perhaps insensitive for other reasons. It was about Obama's supposed socialism. Two columns I referenced are worth looking at, though. From:

Barabara Ehrenreich
