Jesus would say render unto Caesar the things that are Caesars and render unto God the things that are God.
He actually did say that.
And it doesn't answer the question.
He would side w/ the Wall St banksters
I haven't voted yet because I'm still on the fence.
In all likelihood he would condemn some aspects and condone others so it's not an easy call. Overall I'm currently leaning towards less condemnation and more condoning, but I'm open to contrary arguments.
What aspects would he condemn? I mean the gist of the message, NOT some of the unsanitary, unsavory or criminal acts that may have gone on but weren't the point of the protest.
Do you mean would he break the law continuously to blame people who aren't even responsible for the thing he is whining about? Doubt it.
"My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But now (or 'as it is') my kingdom is not from the world" (John 18:36);
Christ's religious teachings were separate from earthly political activity.
Church and state have separate spheres of influence.
I was referring specifically to those unsavory, etcetera acts.
So you're on the fence too, just like me. That's cool. It means I done good.
