Poverty in America

Ray Comfort stated:

"If you live in the United States, you are rich"

While the truth is that the USA have the third worst rate of absolute poverty and the worst rate of relative poverty when it comes to the comparison to other industrialized nations on earth.

Poverty in the United States

To claim that everyone is rich in a country where people have to die because they can not afford the hospital is simply outright audacious.


  1. Well, come on, what sort of perspective do you think you'll have from a quarter of a million dollar home and $100+k income a year?

    If you spend all your time self-absorbed in your warm, cozy home during the winter, should we be surprised when you think no one's outside dying in the cold?

  2. I know lots of people who live in £250,000 house (that's £ not $) and who bring home £100,000+ a year (that's again £ not $) and none of them would make such an asinine and fundamentally ignorant statement as Ray has about poverty.

    It's not the house or the income that's the problem, it's an inevitable consequence of being a hypocrite who tells terrible and transparent lies in order to get his lifestyle to git with his professed faith.

  3. That should have been 'fit' not 'git'.

    Strange how the word 'git' automatically comes to the fingers when thinking about Ray.

  4. Baldyslaphead:

         Well, over here it means something like "get out" or "go away."

  5. Good point - I'd not noticed that.

    'Git' in the UK means "worthless person, 1946, British slang, a southern variant of Scottish get "illegitimate child, brat," related to beget.


Unlike Ray we don't censor our comments, so as long as it's on topic and not spam, fire away.
