You are entering a dimension of mind, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight - next stop: The Bible Twilight Zone!
Meet OBI-WAN - "Obama Biblical Interpretation - Whatever Argument Needed", a murky version of the most popular book of all time. It's hard to describe, because the verses change according to political expedience. Tonight's adventure is called "Twisted Scripture". You'll need some basic interpretations in order to follow the plot:
"Hurt not the oil and the wine." OBI-WAN interpretation: No drilling for oil in your own country. Have a glass of wine and be at peace with enriching the nations of Ishmael.
"The poor ye have always with you." OBI-WAN interpretation: The poor are eternal and must be emulated. Therefore, eliminate envy by making everybody equally poor.
"Give, and it shall be given back to you, pressed down, shaken together, and running over." OBI-WAN interpretation: Pay all taxes due for government programs, no matter how worthless, and you will feel pressed down when you read the newspaper, shaken up when you realize you've been robbed, and will be running over the border into Canada at your earliest opportunity. Nonetheless, hope for change, and keep voting Democrat.

Good one! Even Santorum, as a Catholic, knew the proper meaning of
the scripture 'to whom much is given' and it sure wasn't Obama's
warped view. I can't give a Newsmax link, we are not supposed to
use them. Other sites report the same, but they don't have the full
quote, as it was a newsmax exclusive; but this is what Santorum
President Barack Obama uses his faith “as a convenience” when it serves him, while at the same time being the most anti-religion president in history, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum charged in an exclusive Newsmax interview.
And by saying that Jesus would have called for higher taxes, Obama was completely misreading the bible, touted the staunch Roman Catholic father of seven.
“Over the last few weeks, he has done more to assault religion in this country than any president, certainly in recent history, maybe even in history,” said Santorum.
The former senator was talking a day after Obama used the National Prayer Breakfast to quote St. Luke’s Gospel that Jesus’ teaching of “Unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required,” should be interpreted to mean that Christ would have wanted the rich to pay higher tax rates.
“Jesus wasn’t talking to the government,” said Santorum. “He wasn’t talking that the government should take more from you.
“He was talking about your responsibility to your fellow man, your responsibility to God to provide for the least among us and not your responsibility to fund Caesar.
“That is a complete misinterpretation of the bible.”
