Bob Riley, the Republican Governor of Alabama, had a "re-conversion" experience as a Christian. This prayerful, Bible-reading Southern Baptist became convinced from scripture that Christians have a duty to help the poor and reform tax systems that are immoral. He became convinced (through the numerous passages in the Torah, the prophets, Luke, etc.) that the wealthy should use some of their abundance to provide for the poor. Of course, his proposal was defeated. It's much easier to get behind Judge Roy Moore's fight to keep a 10 Commandment monument in a prominent place. We love righteous fights that cost us nothing!
