Rangel: Jesus said you’ll go to hell if you don’t support welfare

Censured Congressman Charlie Rangel had a message for Republicans who don’t support food stamps and health insurance for the poor: “You’re going straight to hell.”

“Congressman, how can the Republicans still claim to have the moral and religious high ground with the way they vote?” Ed Shultz, host of CNN’s “The Ed Show,” asked the 83-year-old tax-cheat.

Rangel agreed, and told Shultz he thinks even the Pope has heard the same complaint.

Rangel said:

Anyone that’s familiar with the Bible, anything like that…When Jesus said that you’re going straight to Hell if you didn’t treat the lesser of his brothers and sisters…and what did he say? He said he was hungry, that you didn’t give him food stamps, he was thirsty, that you didn’t purify the water, that he was naked, and you didn’t give him Social Security

Can you imagine if 60 million Catholics became missionaries just for the poor, the sick and the uninsured?

And he said all that without cringing knowing his own less-than-stellar past.
