This morning, we were talking in Sunday School about the Church and whether it had dropped the ball on charity thatallowed the state to encroach.
Mustang had posited that LBJ was the worst president, but I think that FDR did the most damage of any president to this country and yet he is still is considered one of the greats!
"He saw us through the Great Depression AND World War Two."
It's quite obvious that his policies extended the Great Depression and arguable that he maneuvered us INTO World War Two.
The Christian Church had for years provided charitable activity to the population, but the depression was such a monster that the reserves of the church (the wealth of it's members) was strained.
Was this the intent of the FDR administration?
To enslave the populace by tying their welfare to the state by weakening the ability of the Church to respond?
Normal economic cycles could be absorbed by society, but was this long harsh economic downturn exacerbated intentionally?
Did Obama do the same?
