Susan Hamill, a professor at the University of Alabama Law School, has argued in the Alabama Law Review that the Bible says the federal government should tax rich people at 50% of income, plus state and local taxes.
If this sounds like Left-wing propaganda to you, you’re with me.
This is the Social Gospel, but updated for evangelicals. A century ago, only theological liberals believed such anti-biblical nonsense, but there are so few of them around these days that Prof. Hamill is targeting naive evangelicals who do not know their Bibles.
I have refuted Professor Hamill, assertion by assertion. I went to the Bible to show that not only does it not teach this, it regards a 10% income tax as a form of tyranny (I Samuel 8:15, 17). By this standard, Prof. Hamill is calling for tyranny times 5.
