What a bunch of BS. Jesus was a Jew, not a conservative, liberal or anything else. The principals set forth in the Bible are very applicable today and many Amercians live by them. I, as a conservative have and will continue to help people in need, however I'm opposed to a monsterous system that is wrought with fraud, waste and so on that only a small portions get to those in need. If someone is in need, help them, don't send your $100 to the Federal Govt. so that the person next door can get a $10 food stamp. Go next door and give him $100!
Actually Medicare and Medicaid, studies have shown that monies going to them are all going to the people except for a very small percentage of administration costs...It is the private insurance companies that are "top heavy" in their administrative costs and very little monies come to the people in their bottom line...do your research...Plus Jesus was all about love and helping as many as possible which is medicare and medicaid etc etc...if he came back today, he probably would be down in a poor district in town helping out the homeless etc etc and making sure they have enough to eat...
"Churches are becoming political organizations....
It probably will not be long until the churches will divide as sharply upon political, as upon theological questions; and when that day comes, if there are not liberals enough to hold the balance of power, this Government will be destroyed. The liberty of man is not safe in the hands of any church. Wherever the Bible and sword are in partnership, man is a slave.
All laws for the purpose of making man worship God, are born of the same spirit that kindled the fires of the auto da fe, and lovingly built the dungeons of the Inquisition. All laws defining and punishing blasphemy -- making it a crime to give your honest ideas about the Bible, or to laugh at the ignorance of the ancient Jews, or to enjoy yourself on the Sabbath, or to give your opinion of Jehovah, were passed by impudent bigots, and should be at once repealed by honest men. An infinite God ought to be able to protect himself, without going in partnership with State Legislatures. Certainly he ought not so to act that laws become necessary to keep him from being laughed at. No one thinks of protecting Shakespeare from ridicule, by the threat of fine and imprisonment. It strikes me that God might write a book that would not necessarily excite the laughter of his children. In fact, I think it would be safe to say that a real God could produce a work that would excite the admiration of mankind. Surely politicians could be better employed than in passing laws to protect the literary reputation of the Jewish God."

Howdy is the devil. WWJD He would save his choosen people, which are the people of Isreal, which is a group of people, a blood line, not a geographical location. Jesus was a nationalist at heart, as are most common thinkers. Nationalist values are the only way for a nation to remain soveriegn.
I would like to thank the soldiers fighting these Muslim extremeist abroad, and hope that they one day have the cuffs removed so we can get the extreme muslims here. Farrakhan were coming for your racist hateful ass.
