I love seeing this thread filled by CHRISTIANS with such naked hatred of the poor.....and the thread where SOME say this is a Christian nation.....sure sounds like it is


There's a HUGE difference in helping the poor and continuously giving LAZY people more handouts!

The mother of twins is on food stamps, and this month barely had enough money left over to keep her personal cell phone activated.

Sorry but having twins doesn't make her disabled and in NEED of a FREE cell phone. Maybe she should've practiced safe sex before getting herself into this situation! I'm sick of paying for other peoples MISTAKES!!!

BS! The woman has a job, a husband (who I'll assume works), sends her kids to daycare, is getting foodstamps! A two-income household already getting public assistance now feels it's her "right" to have a free cell phone? When did cell phones become a necessity? The rest of us are paying for it in the form of taxes and fees on the telephone bills we work to pay. Perhaps she should have put off child-bearing until she could support her offspring.

I'm not expecting anything from her that I don't do myself - pay for my own conveniences - which is exactly what a cell phone is.

Tell me where in the bible it says "Give the poor mobile phones"... If you cant, it just shows the amount of hatred you have for christians and look for chances to attack them based upon meaningless bs..

Why should I work and pay these fees? I am going to quit and get everything for free.

Anti poor rhetoric, my ASS.
I have faith in you..

Cell phones are a luxury item, not a necessity to live.

I would switch to a company that didn't extract additional fees to pay for other people's cell phones too. I don't think any such company exists, however.

Just another example of our fine government forcing compulsory charity.
