Jesus as a Democrat

I would like to respond to Kevin Buck’s column "Jesus Would Be a Liberal Democrat" (March 20, 2013).

I won’t dignify Mr. Buck’s implication that today’s Republicans are no different than the Pharisees who had Jesus crucified. I would hope that even the most liberal of Democrats would be repulsed by such a disgraceful partisan comparison.

However, I would like to explore his lunacy that Jesus would be a liberal Democrat. Here’s what would have to happen for Jesus to be a liberal Democrat.

Jesus (a Jew) would vote to omit Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in his party’s platform.

Jesus would vote to remove God’s name from his party’s platform as well.

Jesus would put party loyalty above the pursuit of truth.

Jesus would ignore the teachings of scripture and embrace the demands of pop culture.

Jesus would laugh at the notion that God created the world and believe in random chance.

Jesus would not believe God is the giver of life but support abortion rights.

Jesus would believe that God mistakenly made some people the wrong sex.

Jesus would believe that without government entitlements, most people are helpless victims.

Jesus would condemn others for not giving enough money to help the poor but would give almost none of his own personal money.

Jesus would angrily demonize anyone who disagreed with his politics as racists, homophobes, bigots, and haters.

Does this sound like the Jesus of the Bible?
