Lt Gov Bauer's Idea of helping the poor

  •       I am shocked, if not surprised that in a recent speech, South Carolina Lt. Governor Andre Bauer compared people whose children receive free and reduced-price school lunches to "stray animals that are fed handouts." 

      Last Friday, Bauer said giving food to needy people means encouraging dependence. It also gives the recipients a license to have children who will also be dependent on public aid, he said. "My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals," Bauer told a Greenville-area crowd. "You know why? Because they breed."

          When one of these guys that run on what they claim are Christian values shows his unspun true colors, it still shocks. Fifty-eight percent of students in the state‚Äôs public schools participate in the free and reduced-price lunch program

          I guess keeping children and their families too hungry to make it to the polls could be seen as a potential political strategy for Mr. Bauer.   Because somewhere, somehow it must be "pro-life" to allow hungry children to experience stunted growth and mental development because they are unable to afford breakfast.

          I will apologize for even bringing this to the site. I Can not help it. As a Christian, retired pastor, and parent I believe these statements by a pro claimed man of faith to be an outrage that the voting public should remember when they go to the polls.
