LePage’s budget cuts … opportunity for the Gospel – Examiner Article

I have posted a new Religion and Politics article at the Portland, ME Examiner:
LePage’s budget cuts to refugee welfare open opportunity for the Gospel

Here is an excerpt:

The truth is, these cuts could be beneficial to both the refugees and the Church in Maine. When welfare is provided by the government it cannot be considered charity because it is forced on the citizens to pay taxes to provide the welfare services. In many cases it becomes a situation where those receiving aid feel a sense of entitlement, as though it is their right to receive assistance.

If you have the chance please read the rest and let me know what you think. Thanks.
