Christian Priorities

I recently read that the United States could eradicate world hunger for less money than we have already spent on the war in Iraq. Let that sink in for a minute.

Why is it that the same politicians who are first to claim we are a Christian nation also happen to be the first to support war over ending world hunger? I think I must have missed the part in the bible that says cheap gas for our SUVs is more important than human life.

The next time someone starts in with the "how can you have morals if you don't believe in my god" crap, I think I'm going to have to laugh in his/her face. Evidently, Christian morality is limited to the economic self-interest of the rich.
