Alan Colmes has a stomach turner of a post: "Would Jesus Like Today’s GOP?"
From a collective noun point of view, I submit that Jesus wouldn't have cared about the GOP. Jesus was entirely a-political, from the time he preached a Sermon on the Mount that had zero political content, to the time he essentially refused to engage the Sanhedrin and Pontius Pilate before the crucifixion.
From an individual point of view, Jesus cares for every member of the GOP, everyone on the left, the readers of this post, and me.
I request that everyone sit down with a cuppa their favorite warm beverage and actually READ what Jesus had to say in the Gospels prior to attempting to enlist the Christ to support any viewpoint on any particular issue.
While Christ, and therefore His actual followers, are not going to engage in explosive landscaping near you as result of your silliness, Alan, you are on notice that this is a Party Foul. Argue your point from a simple ethical base, and cease missing the point of the Christ, please.
UPDATE (RSM): Just saw this via Memeorandum -- why bother actually reading your own blog? -- and wanted to say that whenever I want advice about Jesus, Alan Colmes is the man whose advice I seek.
We're like this, me and Alan. Old buddies from way back. One of the finest Christians I've ever known. So I hope Rachel Maddow will book good ol' Al on her show, because he's such a dear friend of mine and Lynn Vincent's.
