Politics

What Would Jesus Say?

| by

 

 If Jesus really were to come back, what would he say? Would he be happy with those who invoke his name in U.S. politics in order to get votes? Would he support their agendas? 
 Would he become a carpenter again if born in this day and age? Not likely. No.....I think Jesus would most likely die in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict before reaching the age of 10. If he were born in America, the right wing Christians would be calling him a piece of shit hippie or he'd be doing time after being caught up in a Federal drug raid on his compassion club. 
What would he think about those who claim to worship him and his teachings being the richest and greediest group of people on the planet? What would Jesus think about the way you continue to spend money on luxuries and needless shit while BILLIONS others suffer in poverty? What would Jesus think about eating contests and starvation occurring on the same planet, at the same time?

What would Jesus think about all those good Christians who want to build fences to prevent people from seeking a better life?
What would he think about those who scream and holler as if the world is coming to an end if even the tiniest fraction of their income goes toward health-care for people who are in desperate need of it?
What would think about all the good Christians who hate people of other faiths and races? What would he think about all the preachers who teach children to hate and fear those who are different from themselves? What would Jesus think about ''Jesus Camp''? What Jesus think about how your kids literally ridicule the very will to live out of gay kids at an ever increasing rate?
What would Jesus think about Pat Robertson? Sarah Palin? Glenn Beck? What would Jesus think about them using his name to spread a message, which contradicts his in every single way?

What would Jesus think about people going to jail for possessing and/or selling a plant? A plant his DAD made?! What would he think about the place known as the ''land of the free'' having more people in prison than any other nation in the world? 

What would Jesus think about people who step over the homeless when they have thousands of dollars in their pocket, get into a Mercedes and drive to their million dollar home?

What would Jesus think about the wars that are going on and all the good Christians who think nothing of following orders, even if those orders involve killing innocent people?

What would Jesus think about Christians who call those in the anti-war movement ''godless hippies''?

What would he think about you sticking up for the ''rights'' of greedy corporate entities, and speaking out against the rights of children who are here ''illegally''?

What would he think about you shopping at Wal-Mart and purchasing things you KNOW were sown together with the little bloody fingers of a child? How do you think Jesus would feel about that?

You Christians are out of control. It's so clear to everyone but yourselves how brainwashed you are. It's getting sad now you guys. The hypocrisy has reached epidemic proportions. So, either answer at least some of the above questions, or stop judging and start listening to someone other than your preachers, and these people on Fox ''news''. Take a hard look at what your God says, then look at what your politicians, preachers, and social commentators say. You will see that their messages/agendas are the opposite of what Jesus said.  So which is it, money or God? You can't have both.


Personally, I believe if Jesus came back right now the people in this world he would be the most angry with are the same ones who claim to worship him the most.


But hey.....don't take it from me. Listen to your God:
