Shamelssly Lifted From Another Blog

Jesus Was Not a Republican

It never ceases to amaze me how right wingers claim Jesus as some kind of mascot, yet spend all their time decrying welfare and social programs for the poor and calling for the eternal damnation of gays. Were Jesus on earth in the 21st century, he would be volunteering at AIDS clinics and helping uninsured families, not whining about the tax burden on wealthy soccer moms.

Now for my comment: I must say I agree, (case in point:Jesse Helms-may he boil in urine in Hell- see to find out)...and don't care if anyone else doesn't. After all I do have the power to delete comments, but I'll more than likely leave them up so have fun.

I agree. I do not think Jesus would agree with the Republicans of today's society. He would indeed be knee-deep in the trenches with those who suffer from AIDS, visit those who live in the poorest districts of our cities, eat lunch with society's outcasts, etc. Jesus was not above His status. He was always found to be walking, talking, and dining with those society thought as scum or diseased. I think more Republicans need to take a second look at the Bible and how Jesus lived when He was on earth.
I think the Democrats have it more right when it comes to providing programs for those in need. They get it - we should not ignore the needy and the poor in our society but rather we should be reaching out to them.
Neither party is better than the other. Each has their own faults. That is why I do not vote party. I vote based on how I think each candidate will do.

I agree that each party has it's faults. I tend to vote issues, and there are a few that are near and dear to me, and the Dems tend to vote that way. Family planning is VERY important to me. Health care is important to me. And as far as I've been able to figure out, "compassionate conservatism" just means "We'll feel compassion for you if you're in our tax bracket".

Yeah, you got the compassion thing right about the republicans...only if you are rich do they really care about you. At least the democrat running wants to set in place programs to help people of all status.
