He started his own “party”. His own government too.

Shush your mouth. That’s blasphemy you’re talking there. No baby-killing, fudge-packing, same sex marrying misbegotten , godforsaken miscreants in God’s House.

Sorry, Never mind......

I guess you’re saying that of course Christ would not support the democrats in the baby killing...

That’s easy. Jesus was Jewish, therefore he’d be a NEOCON.

Jesus was about saving the individual soul. The individual is to give of themselves for others in a spirit of love. Jesus did not advocate stealing from others to give away. There is no individual compassion or love in that. Jesus said give to Caesar.... In other words, “I don't care. Its irrelevant.” Why? Nothing about a bureaucracy is righteous for the individual in a spiritual sense.

Hmm, let’s see - doesn’t oppress others in the name of justice, steal under the color of governmental authority, lie to those who blindly trust them. I think not.

No. Jesus was far above man’s foul political games.

Satin, however, is deeply involved in progressive politics and mentors Barry and his partners in crime on a regular basis.

Whenever these type of articles appear over the net I will say that Jesus does not want your vote, he wants your life. That usually doesn’t get any response.

Not that I was invited, but I think Huskrrrr engaged in the most extreme sarcasm.

Democrats not only endorse abortion, they extol it.

Jesus would never do so. He would NEVER be associated with the baby-killer party.

That was my takeaway from the comment.

If I am out of line I will accept it.

Thank you, yes that was my intent. I didn’t watch the video because every time I hear Christ being labeled a “Democrat” my blood boils. Nancy Pelosi should read several quotes from Mother Teresa regarding abortion.

Jesus already had and continues to have His kingdom. The earthly, manmade “kingdoms” of this world will all their politics pale in comparison.

Christ wouldn’t have promoted Democratic policies or Republican ones. He would have commanded that his followers allow the dead to bury the dead and instead take up their crosses to follow Him into His kingdom, which is not of this world.

Jesus didn’t believe in killing nascent human life, so no, Jesus would not have been a Democrat. To the contrary, He didn’t care much for govt, so what now?

I like how Zo sped up the video at 1:33 so Rangel doesn’t sound like he just smoked a pack of Camels like he normally does. Though he kinda sounds like Porky Pig without the stuttering.

While Satan speaks in the language of uncouth, scatological blasphemy, Satin is Satan’s younger, smooth-talking doppelganger.

Also, this:

“So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

“Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

“But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Matthew 25:20-30

Stock answer: No. Nor would Jesus have been a Republican. However, God has condemned almost all of the Democratic platform and, as Christians, we are called to resist evil. Therefore, he would likely have used his human options to thwart evil and voted against RATs. Unfortunately, the pubbies often leave us little room to vote for them, too.
