Quoting The Bible

It's entertaining to me how often Conservatives will quote The Bible as the quintessentially undisputed authority on any issue. This is mostly true in regard to social issues, but sometimes the "invisible hand" of God is portrayed as being present during trading at the NYSE. We are told that homosexuality should be illegal because Leviticus says so, ignoring the fact that many of these people sport a clean-shave contrary to God's decree in the same book, a mere chapter later.

PAM is not a religiously focused group, but there are members and Expositors who are devout believers in their particular faith. It is not easy to be both a person of faith and a defender of *shudder* liberal political views. That's why this page is dedicated to verses in The Holy Bible that support liberal and/or progressive political ideology. 

Matthew: 25:34-40 (NIV)
"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.' 
"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' 

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"

John 13:34 (NIV)
"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another."

Leviticus 19:18 (NIV)
"'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD."

Matthew 7:1 (NIV) 
"Do not judge, or you too will be judged."

Genesis 4:9 (NIV)
Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" "I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"
