Sums it up perfectly....

I got this in an email and thought it was spot on. Jesus never said we're to steal from others, i.e. 'the rich' to give to the poor. Jesus wasn't Robin Hood!

This redistribution plan is going to take a while.....

Yesterday on my way to lunch, I passed one of the homeless guys in the
area, with a sign that read "Vote Obama, I need the money." Once in the
restaurant, my waiter had on a "Obama 08" tee shirt.

When the bill came, I decided not to tip the waiter and explained to him
while he had given me exceptional service, that his tee shirt made me
feel he obviously believes in Senator Obama's plan to redistribute the
wealth. I told him I was going to redistribute his tip to someone that
I deemed more in need--the homeless guy outside. He stood there in
disbelief and angrily stormed away.

I went outside, gave the homeless guy $3 and told him to thank the
waiter inside, as I had decided he could use the money more. The
homeless guy looked at me in disbelief but seemed grateful.

As I got in my car, I realized this rather unscientific redistribution
experiment had left the homeless guy quite happy for the money he did
not earn, but the waiter was pretty angry that I gave away the money he
did earn. Well, I guess this redistribution of wealth is going to take
a while to catch on with those doing the work
