Mitt Romney vs. Jesus

Remember when Mitt Romney said, “I’m not very concerned with the very poor”?

He has followed that up with strong evidence that he REALLY doesn’t care about the very poor. According to Mother Jones, Romney, after securing the Republican nomination for President recently, said the following at a fundraising event:

There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.

T. F. Charlton has made a telling post at her Tumblr comparing this quote with quotes from Jesus. [SPOILER: Only one has compassion.]
