Jesse Jackson politicizes the crucifixion: Jesus was killed because ‘he occupied the corrupt
Daily Caller ^ | 4/9/12 | Jeff Poor

Jesse Jackson, the president and founder of Rainbow PUSH Coalition, doubled down on a statement he made in London in December proclaiming Jesus was an “occupier,” this time tying the proclamation to the story of Easter weekend. Speaking at an Occupy Chicago rally in Grant Park on Saturday, Jackson told a crowd his interpretation of why Jesus went to the cross: “He fought for the poor because he was among the poor. He faced crucifixion as he fought occupation.” Specifically, Jackson said Jesus was killed because he confronted the money changers in the temple in Jerusalem, as told in the

Jesus was killed because of JESSE JACKSON'S SINS (and all of our sins for that matter), including sins of SLOTH and ENVY and JEALOUSY and STEALING.

Period.

Nothing more.

Nothing less.

The nerve of this man with a second, extra-marital family on the side to continue to be some kind of "spiritual leader". Somebody really ought to call him out on it.

Gee! And I always thought the Sanhedrin accused Him of Blasphemy, in that He claimed to be exactly who He was.

But then Jesse is probably right and I’m wrong, ‘cause he’s got a “Rev” in front of his name.

(I’ve always wondered what church bestowed that title.)

The irony here is that Jesus had no problem with the money changers perse it was that they were conducting business in the Holy Temple. Much could be said about Rev. Jackson using his position in the church to amass millions.

“And I always thought the Sanhedrin accused Him of Blasphemy, in that He claimed to be exactly who He was.”

Yes, that would be what actually happened, but since when are libs concerned with facts ?

“(I’ve always wondered what church bestowed that title.)”

The same one Anton Lavey went to, perhaps ?

“He fought for the poor because he was among the poor.”

Obviously, Jesse Jackson is making the point that he and Jesus have nothing in common.

Things reached an apex later in 2008, when Bennett says he "was summoned to Rev. Jackson's hotel room" at the Hilton Chicago O'Hare Airport Hotel. Bennett claims that he was eventually instructed to apply cream to Jackson, who "had a rash between his legs." Bennett says that he refused, resulting in Jackson allegedly calling Bennett a "little mother******."

(from news stories on the lawsuit against JJ from a former assistant)

I've often thought that the "Jesus was a community organizer" motif was not merely ridiculous and stupid, but also revealing.

Perfect, sinless Jesus is a constant reproach to those who (for example) mercilessly gay-bait their little queer assistant for laughs. It's easier for such people to think of Jesus as...well, someone like themselves. Cause Jesus went around calling the Apostles "little mother******s", right?

It is telling that both the “Rev” Jackson with this bogus crap and The Usurper with his mangling of the story of The Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane display such contempt for what they mistakenly believe to be the scriptural illiteracy of Judeo/Christians in this country.

But then neither one of them knows crap about the Constitution either.

The Usurper gets a pass, as he is, after all just an illegal Mohammedan alien. But Jackson should know better. He was born here.

I think.

Jesse appears to be unsaved.

Jesus died & rose again because I am a sinner, you are a sinner and Jesse is a sinner.

Whether any of us are “occupiers”, occupied, rich, poor, black or white or brown or yellow has NOTHING to do with it.

“For ALL have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Rom 3:23
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Rom 6:23

Jesse “reverend” jackson...a bloated, pill popping, sneaky, crooked, vile, adulterous sack of human excrement...leading the “civil rights” movement into the abyss. Jesse don’t care, as long as he can steal some “whitey” corporate money and get some young love on the side. As Al Shsrpton once said...Jesse likes to take other peoples blood and smear it on his shirt...the reverend of depravity...why is this fraud so esteemed by Obama and the media? Because he’s a race baiting shit stirrer.

In reality, the original “occupy movement” was that of the devil seeking to occupy the throne of God, (Is. 14:13,14) trying to “climb up some other way” (Jn. 10:1) to position, apparently with 1/3 of other angels concurring, that God should “share the wealth,” that of His power.

And who later, in the Garden, the devil sought to instill the victim entitlement mentality into Eve, that God was not dealing with her fairly, by not “sharing the wealth” of His knowledge, thus justifying her rebellion. (Gn. 3)

Anyone who knows Jesus...

He was not too hot on government powers. He separated Himself and God’s kingdom from Ceasar and his kingdom/government. He told people to separate the two when giving alms and serving God and His Kingdom.

He said the poor would always be with us so there is no government solution to end poverty. Most times, poverty is the natural outcome of what we chose in life and it is not always bad to be poor as long as you have Christians doing what he said to do with loving one another, giving alms and providing service (i.e., to teach man to fish rather than giving him fish to eat for the day) in God’s name.

Jesus would not be out campaigning for the lessor of two evils! I am sure Jesus loves Jesse but He would not hire Jesse as his political and social spokesman in his current spiritual and mental state. Communists and socialists, with their track record of mass mudering Christians and Jews might not be His homies.
