      morning in a section of the Washington Post I rarely read. The "On Faith" column today is "If Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin don’t like the pope, they won’t care much for Jesus" with:

      Limbaugh is right. Somebody did get to Pope Francis. It was Jesus.

      Self-styled “defenders of Christianity,” like Palin and Limbaugh, peddle a profoundly unhistorical view of Jesus. Indeed, if you listened to those on the far right you would think that all Jesus ever spoke about was guns and gays.

      and with respect to the actual teachings:
      As one can imagine, such a radical vision of the world would have been both profoundly appealing for those at the bottom rungs of Jesus’ society, and incredibly threatening for those at the top. The fact is not much has changed in two thousand years, as Palin and Limbaugh have proven.
      I think it is a damn sure bet that if such a being landed here in the U.S. this TP/GOP conglomeration of the religious nut jobs and big money would be using all media to scream for crucifixion.

      The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and those are ignorance, superstition, and incompetence. [Elbert Hubbard]
