    The Perfect Conservative | RedState

    looks like he wrote this op-ed a while ago, though they didnt specify what year it was put up. I disagree with a few of his arguments. Not sure how he can say Christ was not born into a royal family, but I am guessing that's because his family wasnt the current royalty, not that they weren't royal. And I am not sure how he is arguing that the court that prosecuted Him was liberal. But this part I can certainly get behind. And he is describing the perfect conservative:

    Personally, I think Jesus was above the political fray. But He is certainly the ideal we should all strive for.

    Jesus Christ was a radical Liberal who railed against the Religious Monopoly and the most Wealthiest of his time. Any Conservative who thinks otherwise is living in denial.

    It is ridiculous for any political persuasion to claim Christ as theirs. But, partisan hacks are never terribly intelligent.

    Why am I not surprised by the intellectual standard of your reply?


    Oh, yea. That'll be because you're a partisan hack.

    Jesus called.

    He said he doesn't like being used as a political tool.

    Be nice if both sides could stop that kind of drivel. But they won't. Because intellectual argument is outside their intellectual pay grade.

    Jesus was no conservative. I don't know what part of the Bible Cain could possibly be referring to, but it seems like he must have skipped over the sermon on the mount, entirely.

    He probably hasn't read any Kurt Vonnegut, either.
