Liberals & Jesus: Fair weather friends

“What would Jesus do” on the issue of stem cell research? Bill Press ponders this question.

Okay then, since Bill seems to care so much what Jesus thinks, what if you asked “What would Jesus do” on the issue of abortion? I can hear it already: “Shut up! Stop throwing Jesus in my face you religious zealot! It’s every woman’s right to choose!”

I love a morning when I can wake up and be reminded that I’m on the correct side on this stuff. Press’s column is just one of many that demonstrate how Jesus is to liberals like a parent to a twenty-year-old boy who just went to college– They only come calling if they need some money. In the case of Liberals, the currency is in the form of validation from on high, but it doesn’t work.

Liberals do everything they can to get Jesus removed from schools, public meeting places, government buildings, and anywhere else their intrusive fingers can reach, but they try to keep Jesus close by just in case they need Him to try to win an argument.

We’ve all seen the bumper sticker and t-shirts saying, “Jesus is a Liberal”. Sure. And Ted Kennedy is svelte and dry.
