Today, the BBC News reports that a bunch of bishops are criticising the government's plan to restrict welfare payments to £500 per week per household. The report cites that the bishops believe the cap to be "profoundly unjust" to children in the poorest families and that they have a "moral obligation to speak up for those who have no voice". Well, far from having no voice, it seems those on welfare have plenty of voice - the voice of these bishops for a start.
But what about those who truly have no voice? Those who choose to get on with it, those, in fact, who pay the bulk of the taxes to cover our over-generous handouts to job-dodging scroungers? The vast majority of those in work earn far less than £500 per week and somehow - apparently against the odds - manage to raise their families without holding out their hands to government. When will there be some form of social justice for these horny-handed sons of toil?
Remind me what it is the church have told poor people forever? Oh yes, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." and "Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven." You fuckers are just as responsible for poverty as anybody else, promoting your fearful heavenly lottery system and ruling by fear. And don't even get me started on the inquisition or kiddy-fiddling.
