    took your points, replaced "It's UNAMERICAN to" with "Would Jesus" put them on fliers and plastered them on windshields at my local super church?

    Great diary! I like using these sorts of things as talking points with my Republican friends & work associates.

    •  Fine by me (none)
      Kossacks are open source, yes?

      It is a very mixed blessing to be brought back from the dead.

    •  Wow. (4.00)
      Did you just assert that "Jesus is a real American" on Daily Kos and get away with it?

      I think you did.

      That's fucking... I don't know. Awesome? Hilarious? Unnerving?

      I wouldn't know, I'm drinking a lot these days.

      Keep on posting. I like your name.

        and he was a hippie!

        "And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors."

        --Thomas Jefferson, Letter to John Adams, April 11, 1823

        i.e. forget about all the stories and myths; everyone should live their lives closer to jesus' model.

        i sincerly doubt you'll find any kossack who has a problem with jesus.  it's the falwells and the phelpses and the fundagelical wingnuts, et al.

        jesus is cool in most anybody's book.
