Well, we're not in the news very often. The pundits don't know we exist. We don't fit in with any pollster's partisan sampling. I think that's one reason why I basically dislike pundits with a few notable exceptions (James Carville for one). For the record, I'm Scotch-Irish by background and heterosexual. I was raised a Protestant and converted to Catholicism some years back.

Absolutely.

He said to sell your jewelery and give your money to the poor. Not tax breaks for the rich.

He said love your enemy and turn the other cheek. Not pre-imptive strikes.

He hung out with the lepers and prostitues of the time. Didn't ignore them or treat them less of an equal.

He promoted his teachings to the individual soul and didn't try and impose it onto the government.

Yes indeed

Also one of my favorites- "He who exalts himself shall be humbled, and he who humbles himself shall be exalted"
