Jesus was a Democrat. He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, not an elephant.

One of the most disturbing things I've heard regarding Religion and politics was from the Woodward book about GW Bush. Apparantly when Woodward asked GW why he didn't consult his father GW Sr. on the issue of Iraq, GW Jr. resonded with this:

"I consulted a Higher Father"

Excuse me, but maybe my 11 years of Catholic Schooling taught me the wrong Bible, but I honestly don't think that God or Jesus would go to war with Iraq, let alone anyone for that matter. It seems very hypocritical to use the word Higher Father and War in the same sentence, At least the Higher Father I believe in. To me this is no different than Terrorists using their God to go to "war" with us. To me it's the same thing.

God is a republican... I don't see where the debate is... Zeus was a democrat though... Odin was a libertarian.

You know...I like Jesus and God, it is just their fan club that I don't like!
