    the mythological character of Jesus said in the gospels and try to apply it to today's issues or to the "character" of a political person, you can't ignore the others.

    In Matthew 10:11-15, Jesus tells his disciples to go into a town and find only those "worthy" to preach to. And if they are rejected by the people in the house, or the whole town, they should leave. And what happens to the town? "Truly, I say to you, it shall be more tolerable on the day of judgement for the land of Sodom and Gemorrah than for that town."  In other words, they are curse to hell, or at the very least fire bombing from the sky.   Yep, people and whole towns of people (including their children) should be thrown into ever lasting punishment for not wanting to hear or accept Jesus's teachings.

    So what exactly IS the definition of a "Christian" anyway if Jesus held this kind of attitude and belief? And what the "h" does it have to do with decisions needing to be made on city budget expenditures?

    This is like those Congressmen fighting over the food stamps issue the other day by trying to out-Jesus each other to bolster their arguments.
