. Now ask, would Christ sooner be anti-gun, or anti-drug
Christ didn't oppose slavery either. Was he on the South's side in the civil war? I believe it was Frank Buchman, a noted and highly influential Lutheran evangalist, that proclaimed Adolph Hitler to be Christ's answer to Communism back in the '30s.
I find it more personally productive to try to be on God's side than to try to invoke him to being on my side. And I don't see the WOD as being at all Godly in nature.

Well, I don't disagree with you there. At times I think he would be neither, since he obviously had a problem with man's narrow way of thinking. His statement "Reject the world and everything in it, for my kingdom is not of it" says a lot about our petty politics, IMHO. On Judgement Day, mankind will be judged according to the His word, not ours.
"And why dost thee care for that? Follow me, thou!"
