Jesus Christ Was a Liberal, No Matter What Republinuts Say

Jesus-Was-Liberal-Button-(0443).jpg

If he was around today, the Republinuts'd be callin' him a commie

What is it about some Republicrazies and conservatards that makes them think God is on their side? I mean, they really believe all liberals are godless atheists who worship Satan and hate religion, and that Jesus is their Confederate-license-plate-rockin' homeboy.

Take this e-mail I just got from some dude in Kennesaw, Georgia (as they'd say on the old Hee Haw show, "Population 21,675, Saaaaa-luuuut!), who took issue with me using a phrase from the Don McLean song, American Pie, "Satan's laughing with delight." I had used it as a throwaway line in some old opinion piece, it seems.

In any case, Kennesaw-ean Joe Benson wrote me the following,

Mr Lemons, "Satan is laughing in delight" is an odd thing for someone with such a left-slant to say. I think you lefties are a godless bunch.  "Satan comes to Steal, Kill and Destroy". You promote stealing, wholesale, from "the Rich" (a defenseless straw-man).  I believe that puts you in Satan's court, doesn't it?  "But they have so much more than I do!", you might say. Isn't that the same line all the shop-lifters use when they steal from the local department store??  I'd say that puts you squarely on the side of thieves, people without principles, rationalizers, in short - Satan's side!

Now, while I may enjoy the occasional night of moonlit Satan-worshipping and imbibing of intoxicants with a succubus or two, I just so happen to know that there are innumerable liberals who also happen to be Christians, or vice-versa.

In fact, I'd argue that Jesus Christ himself was a liberal. All that stuff about the meek inheriting the earth, helping the poor, being a peacemaker, doing unto others, turning the other cheek, hanging out with ex-prostitutes, publicans, and assorted other sinners, breaking the law of the Sabbath? Sounds pretty lefty to me.

Particularly this well-known Jesus quote from Luke, "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

Of course, as we all know, Jesus was Jewish. He wasn't a Christian. So I'm not sure how you deal with that one. But he was one liberal Jew.

Many of the most compassionate folks I've ever known were religious in one way or another. On the flip side, the idiots in the Ku Klux Klan believed themselves to be white knights of Christendom, or some such mess.

Sill, in an effort to prove brother Benson incorrect, and show him the error of his ways, I've developed this little list of famous and not-so-famous Christian liberals. Feel free to add to them, if you wish.

(Note: After posting this, Mr. Benson replied to my e-mail to him in good humor, so keep that in mind as you're posting comments.)

And this is why so many of the people you listed above are in favor of abortion? That makes them Christian?

For all the Christians who make an exception to abortion in the case of rape, incest, or life of the mother, I suppose the virgin Mary raped by God could have had baby Jesus aborted and they would be O.K. with that. Lucky for them Planned Parenthood wasn't around at that time.

Here's the thing I've never understood about Christian monotheism. In the 10 commandments, #1 is: I am the Lord thy God. (He's speaking to Moses, who's supposed to deliver these tablets down to the Israelites.) #2 is: Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Here's where I get a bit confused. He seems to be saying, in effect, that there are other gods, else why would he need to bring in the bit about no "other" gods. It looks like he would be perfectly happy with the Israelites as long as they don't go worshipping those other gods like Baal for example, or Zeus, Thor, Jupiter, Bacchus (especially Bacchus, according to Southern U.S. fundamentalist Christians), etc. He seems to be acknowledging that there ARE other gods with this. Now I understand that he later gets a bit pissed off because it turns out there are people in other lands (that apparently the Judeo-Christian god ignored for a long, long time) who really do worship other gods, and when these damned "chosen ones" intermingle through trade and stuff, they get exposed to these other gods, especially the Roman and Greek ones, and some of them may actually believe in them. This is a problem for God -- especially when they find out about Bacchus!

It's hard to reply to those on the out side trying to look in.

A person's 'god' can be any thing they devote themselves to that takes His place in their life.

You don't have any idea what the 10 Commandments were given for. Their place & purpose for humanity.

Worst of all, you have no idea of the destructive nature of what the Bible calls sin.

You can believe whatcha want. As for me & my house, we serve Him.

Jesus didn't come to establish a new religion. He came to show us how to connect to the true God. The only God. Jesus' goal is relationship, not religion.

God is schizophrenic. He speaks of himself in the plural. "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..." Genesis 1:26

He also supports incest else how would Adam and Eve have procreated except to have sex with their own kids? Hey Cain, come bang hot hairy mom here so I can get a lick with your little sister before you boys rag her out!

This sick god supports rape and incest rusing Rufinol or other strong drinks too.

Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our Father. Genesis 19:32-34

And we do not even want to get into the whole schizophrenic notion of the so-called "trinity" in the New Testament ideology. It only gets wackier from there. Jesus prays to himself not to have himself murdered but says not his will, but his own will be done. Or in the river Jordan: with God as a cloud, the Holy Spirit playing the part of a freakin' bird, and Jesus gets dunked by a crazy desert rat who eats bugs and honey for a living. On the cross, Jesus calls himself Abba and let's himself know he is done torturing himself to death. A few days later he ascends into the alien Mothership. That is, if you believe in the insane "trinity" doctrine. Some Christians compare the trinity God with an egg. Or a cloud of mist. Or a god sitting on a throne sharing legs with the other gods which they can detach themselves from at will. Even Mormons don't believe in that crap. Mormons just believe that God is an alien having sex with thousands of chicks and living on the star Kolob (a star not recognized by astronomers coincidentally). I like the Mormon version better.

"The irony of man is of course that he is able to wholly deny the obvious while at the same time completely believe in the impossible." -JT Ready from essay Is Race Important?

JT, if you're going to quote the bible, a little context of the quotes would be useful.

Malachi 2 warns priests what will happen to them if they disobey God's word.

http://www.biblegateway.com/pa...

Isaiah 36 tells the story of a king who promises things he can't deliver.

http://www.biblegateway.com/pa...

Ezekiel 4 predicts the siege of Jerusalem and what would happen to those who live unclean lives and do not live by the word of God.

http://www.biblegateway.com/pa...

So don't go acting like you know anything about the Bible because even a simple fact check on your statements prove you don't know squat.

JT Ready

Yeah, God will smear shit on them. And he has Ezekiel take a dump and make bread out of it to eat crap laden biscuits. No matter how you cut it, this god is crazy as a loon. And obsessed with bowel movements. So take a squat on that.

Yo, JT R, the OT reference you gave about dung. The dung was to be used for fuel, not food.

You may know ABOUT religion, but you do NOT know God. You know suppositions & factious imaginings about Him, but you have yet to meet Him.

Jesus did not come to establish another religion. He came to make relationship with God possible. This is where I am coming from. I have met God. Through Jesus. Any one can.

Which would explain the low rate of denunciations of Christ by those who were being fed to lions, burned for street lights, tortured, out cast...These brave followers of The Way had personally met Father God. This experience is what gave them the ability to suffer the pain & agony they endured on their way to heaven at the hands of their persecutors.

I have had this experience. This is where I speak from.

You can have it as well. All you havta do is repent & embrace Christ & His payment for your sin.

Was that supposed to be an intelligent or witty comeback? If so, then you failed not only to succeed in making a coherent argument, you still fail to understand the lessons and, even worse, fail to get the general concept of metaphors.

Besides, the fact there are maybe six references to dung doesn't define the whole book. And why are you picking only out the Old Testament? Does that have anything to do with them being out of the Jewish book? Why nothing out of the NEW Testament?

Jesus Christ is neither republican nor democrat nor any other political party. He IS God! A Jew, yes. And through Whom the church was born because of his death on the cross...for all humanity, for all time. I get so tired of the childish banter between people of differing views. The fact is, Jesus is the Truth regardless what your political views. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. (Luke 3:17) So, argue if you must, but please do not bring Jesus into the middle of it. We are the very sinners he sat among back in the day! Yes that's where he spent much of his time, because he came to heal the sick not those who 'thought' they were well (the self-righteous), although they are not excluded from forgiveness if they turn and recognize their need of him. Eternity is at stake. Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. Big Love.

JT Ready
JT Ready

So let's get this whole christo-insantity thing straight:

Jesus' sicko dad, God, can not just forgive the creatures he in fact created (in his image) in the first place for their innate "sin". Instead, he must torture to death his own innocent son (crucifixion, Cruci-FICTION). Then if you do not except his wacky pretext to perform ritualistic cannibalism of Jesus' mutilated body (communion) just so you can one day sit on a wet cloud and worship some insane guy with a white beard (heaven), he will torture you to death for all of eternity (hell). That pretty much sums up the plan of "salvation". Crazy.

Christianity is a mental illness. Maybe under Obama's health care plan we can finally address this mass psychosis and get it properly registered in DSM V. http://www.dsm5.org/Pages/Defa...

There is no good or evil in nature. Just force and the cycle of life. When a baby deer escapes the clutches of the mother mountain lion it is "good" for the mother deer. But it is "evil" for the mountain lion cubs who now starve. When the mother mountain lion catches the baby deer, it is certainly "evil" for the mother deer. But is is quite "good" for the baby lion cubs. When misguided man steps in to kill off all the mountain lions (a keystone species) to save all the poor baby deer, Mother Nature steps in and wipes out all the deer with disease and starvation. So good or evil is indeed relative. As long as we work with the immutable laws of nature we will flourish. And that is good. However, if we rely on schizophrenic people who talk to imaginary gods to make our core decisions, we will experience the wrath of nature regardless of our silly beliefs.

JT R still shows a no understanding of the Bible, God or Jesus. Or the last supper & what Jesus was actually teaching.

So just how did God come down & torture Jesus? What did God do?

I am very well acquainted with the Bible, Torah, Talmud, Koran, and Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Word of Wisdom, and Doctrine and Covenants, as well as various Pagan and some Asian religions. Unlike most spiritual lunatics who fervently profess a particular religion yet still fail to even comprehend their own scriptures, I have studied religion enough to be considered at least a neophyte theologian. What I have discovered is that if you break down the Christian religion into layman terms, it amounts to severe psychosis. Talking to an invisible man. Believing in fairy tales of such ridiculous notions that Jack and the Beanstalk sounds more realistic than a boat packed full of all the world's species floating around for forty days and forty nights. Ignoring the natural universe around them while believing in a bizarre make-believe alternate reality where mental battles are taking place of angels versus demons all day long. Contradictions so extreme that the myriad sects are in constant turmoil with one another over fictitious doctrines upon doctrines which could lead anywhere from gay marriages to stoning gays to death. And such contorted scriptures that practically any meaning one wishes can be derived to fit a particular lunatic's agenda such as blowing up abortion clinics or denying a child proper medical treatment.

Here are some choice biblical scriptures dealing with Yahweh as a coprophiliac obsessed with fecal matter:

And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith. -Ezekiel 4:12 & 15

Then I brought up the princes of Judah upon the wall, and appointed two great companies of them that gave thanks, whereof one went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate: -Nehemiah 12-31

But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you? -Isaiah 36:12

But Rab-shakeh said unto them, Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you. -2nd Kings 18:27

Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. -Malachi 2:3

So SamFox, if you can not figure out on your own how your God had his own son murdered and all the other wacky nonsense the Bible clearly states, I am afraid I can not help you. I am not my brother's keeper. Go see a shrink.

We have to make a distinction between "being Christian" and "being moral." They are not the same thing, and morality does not make someone Christian. If that were the case, then Osama Bin Laden would be the world's greatest Christian alive today. We know that is not the case and I would venture to say that Osama would take issue with being called a Christian.

So, morality does not make republicans and conservatives, and, the sickest of them all, Tea Baggers, Christian anymore than it does Osama.

Morality is evil. It is the oldest plague that has been spit out of hell to torment humanity. Moraility always requires hatred. Moral people always require someone to hate, demean and torment. Otherwise, how can one claim to be of a high moral fiber unless you're kicking someone while they're down.

Chirst was not murdered by the Jews, Christ was murdered by moral people. That is the distinction we must understand.

Here are some nifty Bible verses that show just how much sway the "rich" have with God. And since some people won't know where to find these citations (um, the Bible), I'll provide the text below the list.

Deuteronomy 24:14-17 and 27:19Jeremiah 22:1-5 Malachi 3:5Luke 16:19-31

Deuteronomy 24:14-19 (New American Standard Bible) 14"You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he is one of your countrymen or one of your aliens who is in your land in your towns. 15"You shall give him his wages on his day before the sun sets, for he is poor and sets his heart on it; so that he will not cry against you to the LORD and it become sin in you. 16"Fathers shall not be put to death for their sons, nor shall sons be put to death for their fathers; everyone shall be put to death for his own sin. 17"You shall not pervert the justice due an alien or an orphan, nor take a widow's garment in pledge. 18"But you shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt, and that the LORD your God redeemed you from there; therefore I am commanding you to do this thing. 19"When you reap your harvest in your field and have forgotten a sheaf in the field, you shall not go back to get it; it shall be for the alien, for the orphan, and for the widow, in order that the LORD your God may bless you in all the work of your hands.

Jeremiah 22 - Warning of Jerusalem's Fall 1Thus says the LORD, "Go down to the house of the king of Judah, and there speak this word 2and say, 'Hear the word of the LORD, O king of Judah, who sits on David's throne, you and your servants and your people who enter these gates. 3'Thus says the LORD, "Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place. 4"For if you men will indeed perform this thing, then kings will enter the gates of this house, sitting in David's place on his throne, riding in chariots and on horses, even the king himself and his servants and his people. 5" But if you will not obey these words, I swear by Myself," declares the LORD, "that this house will become a desolation."'

BTW, Arizona's financial house IS in the tank...

Malachi 3:5 5"Then I will draw near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers and against the adulterers and against those who swear falsely, and against those who oppress the wage earner in his wages, the widow and the orphan, and those who turn aside the alien and do not fear Me," says the LORD of hosts.

Luke 16:19-31 (New American Standard Bible) - The Rich Man and Lazarus 19"Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. 20"And a poor man named Lazarus (A)was laid at his gate, covered with sores, 21and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man's table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores. 22"Now the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham's bosom; and the rich man also died and was buried. 23"In Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far away and Lazarus in his bosom. 24"And he cried out and said, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus so that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool off my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame.' 25"But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that (F)during your life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad things; but now he is being comforted here, and you are in agony. 26'And besides all this, between us and you there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over from here to you will not be able, and that none may cross over from there to us.' 27"And he said, 'Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father's house-- 28for I have five brothers--in order that he may warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.' 29"But Abraham said, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.' 30"But he said, 'No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!' 31"But he said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.'"

Like that last line, I don't think the people who support SB1070 and other extremist bills, if God came down in person and told Pearce that he was wrong and will suffer eternal Hell fire for his actions, Pearce won't care.

anyone who claims to be a Christian need remember the Golden Rule, Treat others how you would want to be treated, without an expectation of it in return. I doubt many GOPers would want others to treat them the way they have treated those they dont like as of late. For a party who calls themselves the "Christian party", they sure show a serious lack of it. As for that backwoods, toothless moron whos definition of satan is likely all the black men he sees daily, so his words dont carry much water. In fact, one could even say that the current GOP establishment is one big False Prophet, ". "For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect." (Matthew 24:24 RSV)

Speaking of The Big Guy Jesus Christ, our Associates are now trying to get an outspoken East Coast minister from Harlem, NYC, to network with NT blogster and Pearce's "in-your-face" opponent Robert McDonald of Mesa, also an ordained Man of the Cloth. McDonald is also involved with Somos Republicans at www.SomosRepublicans.com .

"To DR./PASTOR JAMES DAVID MANNING (atlah1@aol.com) and www.ATLAH.org, REVEREND ROBERT MCDONALD, and www.SomosRepublicans.com: Mesa, Arizona political hopeful ROBERT MCDONALD (RobertMcDonald@QwestOffice.net) is finding COMMON GROUND with your arguments against our CORRUPTED and CENSORED MEDIA. In the past, he has also indicated a willingness to go after ALL OF OUR CORRUPT OFFICIALS on all fronts, regardless of political persuasion. The release below cites a recent blog post made by REVEREND MCDONALD, who is also an ORDAINED CHRISTIAN MINISTER. More common ground. REVEREND MCDONALD has been an outspoken critic of our FORMER ally, ARIZONA STATE SENATOR RUSSELL PEARCE, the SB 1070 proponent. Fortunately, we began to see that PEARCE was/is merely grandstanding with 1070. He also wants MONEY, as can be seen by the SB 1070 provisions that put 1070 lawsuit proceeds won by private citizens into corrupt STATE OF ARIZONA coffers. PEARCE also vigorously argues the "kick ass" provisions of the 1070 law, while ignoring the DROPHOUSE and CRIME PROPERTY OWNERS and EMPLOYERS OF ARIZONA's lucrative SLAVE LABOR MARKET. To date, PEARCE has not used the existing 1070 provisions to sue government officials. This probably creates a conflict for PEARCE, but we maintain that PEARCE himself could actually be sued under 1070 due to his DISMAL FAILURE to EFFECTIVELY enforce our federal and state immigration laws. We plan to name him as a Defendant in future claims, because we feel that his showboating for votes is tantamount to GROSS NEGLIGENCE in enforcing the very laws he claims are not being enforced. As in the OKON v PHOENIX class action, our class are the only ones attacking the real problems. We filed the attached action against SALVADOR REZA partly on equal protection grounds, arguing that REZA's MACHEUALLI WORK CENTER in Phoenix engaged in invidious discrimination against non-LATINO/HISPANIC clients. We expect to able to reopen the case and negotiate with REZA. It was dismissed WITHOUT PREJUDICE, with an ORDER to refile in the City of Phoenix Municipal Court. RUSSELL PEARCE never supported this case against REZA and MACHEUALLI, yet he engages in racially-motivated vendettas aimed specifically at denying REZA his basic Constitutional rights, such as peaceable assembly at ARIZONA's government buildings. PEARCE has also conspired with SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO and the ARIZONA CAPITOL POLICE to falsely arrest REZA. The above conduct by PEARCE, ARPAIO, and others shows clearly that they do not really want to peaceably negotiate the immigration issues. Rather, they want to subjugate and oppress and thereby get votes. We feel that REVEREND MCDONALD may be willing to visit with you in NYC to discuss the media, racism, and other issues. In doing so, he will be integrating with African-Americans in HARLEM and has a great opportunity to see SPANISH HARLEM and a diverse Hispanic/Latino population. REVEREND MCDONALD is a Latino-American. In Arizona, REVEREND MCDONALD has contact with very few NON-MEXICAN Latinos/Hispanics. This exclusively segregated population can only increase racism and hatred, especially when it's being incited by RUSSELL PEARCE and his allies. Hopefully REVEREND MCDONALD will ultimately make the trip to NYC, or otherwise network with you. Possibly he can discuss these issues on The Manning Report at www.ATLAH.org or similar forum. Keep up the great work. Sincerely, (signatories names withheld)l

What hogwash to smear an entire state's people in that manner. Jesus was no liberal. He made the 10 commandments and expected us to abide by them. He frowned on lawbreaking. The left advocates for lawbreaking by illegal aliens under the guise of compassiion. Where is their compassion for the American people who are having to bear the brunt of the actions of these lawbreakers? We are compassionate to 1.5 million legal immigrants per year which keeps that compassion in reasonable numbes so they we also continue to be compassionate to our own. The left is so screwed up in their thinking that it is pathetic.

The 10 commandments were given to reveal to us that no one is capable of obeying them completely (God already knew that). This is known as the old covenant - the Law. That's why Jesus, who is God incarnate, came to show us the very nature of God, in that while we were yet sinners, he died so that we may live. Jesus' death on the cross...is the once for all, finished work of salvation. (the unfolding of God's most perfect plan) By his precious blood he established a new covenant - of Grace. The New covenant does not nullify the Law, but is the fulfillment of the Law. The trademark of a true believer is the presence of the Spirit of God: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23

"He made the 10 commandments and expected us to abide by them. He frowned on lawbreaking."

Wow...guess those crazy, uneducated Jesuits I spent 6 years with going over both books were a waste and completely wrong. Gotta wipe all I learned away now.

Seriously...were you sober when you wrote this? Have you ever actually, ummm, read The Bible? Or, at least a teeny part of it? What do you base your completely and entirely wrong claims on?

Jesus "made" the 10 Commandments? He frowned on law breaking? Thanks for the laughs!

Everybody knows that Charlton Heston made the ten commandments.

So Jesus didn't make the ten commandments and doesn't expect us to abide by the law and those commandments? Are you kidding me? What is laughable is you denying it.

Hey Cnut: Jesus "made the 10 Commandments"?? That's your argument for Jesus not being a liberal? I think you better dust off your bible and actually read it instead of spouting off and sounding ignorant. The bible says God made the 10 Commandments and Moses brought them down and gave them to the people on his behalf. That was a few years before Jesus came onto the scene. Look it up.
