    It seems to me the Christian Right is off base...with the ppl that Jesus surrounded himself with and the ppl he helped...it looks to me that Jesus, in today's world,would be a Liberal...

    Jesus wasn't a 'Liberal' any more than he was a 'Conservative' using today's pigeon-holing system. He would have turned over the money changers tables in the lobby offices of both parties.

    What a crock of crap. It is a statement saying that Jesus was for change and did not support much of the established status quo. That is liberal thought.

    I don't think he would approve of hating the sinner like some of the right religious do.

    In my opinion, too many of those pushing his values are a bunch of hippo crips today. Worry for the foetus, but fuck the poor child who is starving and needs healthcare.

    What was Jesus all about?

    I'm not sure.

    Her's something to ask yourselves, though...

    Where do you think Jesus would have been more comfortable and more accepted?

    In an Exxon-Mobil Board of Directors meeting or at Woodstock?

    probably Exxon-----the lines to the bathrooms weren't quite as long.
    Please--no one know what Jesus would do.

    For that matter the right seems to me more about Paul than Jesus. I could be wrong, of course.

    Yo Rayboy, I think ya got it wrong dude. Jesus WAS for change, and DID NOT support the status quo. Remember why he was crucified? It was because the status quo and established leadership wanted Him dead, as he was in the process of telling people how corrupt the Jewish and Roman leadership was. Was He a "liberal"? No. He was a revolutionary.

    Besides, He hung out with the less fortunate and fed them (liberal), provided free health care to anyone that asked (liberal), and was killed by the established leadership because they feared what He was doing (liberal).

    You left part of it out ... change for the sake of change is leftwingnut thought being passed off as liberalism in this country nowadays.

    You have a good point re: hating the sinner. Apply it to yourself and your rabid, drooling at the mouth attacks and sensationalized, twisted if not flat out lying subject lines in the threads you post.

    Not looking REAL good for YOU. But if it makes you feel any better, it DOES make you just as much a hypocrite as anyone you mentioned.

    I don't think he'd have been caught dead at either place.
