Conservatives want to legislate christian morality into law. One of the main tenets of christianity is charity. To be most 'christ-like' the more one gives, the better a person they are. Conservatives oppose any tax increases which might be used to increase welfare benefits, healthcare, or education for the poor. They view using their earned income as "handouts" to the poor as a misuse of tax dollars. How is this different than charity? If conservatives want to mandate christian morality, why do they only pick and choose the parts that dont cost them anything? Where is the consistency in that?
