Obama channels Jesus to support taxing the rich

Remember when Perry and Bachmann said that God told them to run for President they were called crazy?
Well now Obama is trying to justify taxing the rich because he claims it’s consistent with the teaching of Jesus.
If say a republican said God told him to go to war with Iran the press and public would rightly so go nuts.
But Obama uses a whole speech to cherry picked bible quotes justifying class warfare and nobody says anything?
So if I do not agree with Obama’s tax policy I’m not only racist but I’m acting against God’s will.
Oh on a happy fun note Harry Reid was just quoted saying that he has no plans to even submit a budget in 2012.

He said, for example, that his own call for fairness in the tax code – a central tenet of his State of the Union address and his 2012 campaign – is both economically sound and consistent with the teachings of Jesus.
"If I'm willing to give something up as somebody who's been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that's going to make economic sense," he said. "But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that `for unto whom much is given, much shall be required.' It mirrors the Islamic belief that those who've been blessed have an obligation to use those blessings to help others, or the Jewish doctrine of moderation and consideration for others."
He also said the Wall Street reform he championed both "makes the economy stronger for everyone" and abides by God's command to "love thy neighbor as thyself" because it helped people who had been hurt or treated unfairly by financial institutions.
And Obama said he believed in a "biblical call" to care for the poor and to follow "the responsibility we're given in Proverbs to `Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.'"
