Jesus Christ is back, and he's pissed.

Well, not so much pissed, but troubled with Mitt Romney's less than Christian stance on immigration. And why would He not be? Isn't it a fact that Jesus's parents fled Bethlehem for Egypt, after King Herod ordered the execution of all babies under the age of 2? Isn't it true that when they returned, it wasn't to Bethlehem, but to Nazareth?

You'd figure preachy ol' Mitt Headroom and Paul "the Objectivist Christian" Ryan might realize that. And you would be wrong.

So without anymore ado, here's your Heavenly Host with the Most...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I wonder if my born-again right-wing relatives would be able to handle this....sadly, not sure this is the Jesus they know.

      The thinking behind this, and the rest of our Church and State videos, is that the far right has claimed Jesus and Christianity as their wheelhouse for far too long.  Everything I've ever read about JC indicates he would have little in common with the likes of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Heck, Jesus was partial to wine, unlike Mr. 1%.

        I am troubled (in my charitable moments) and outraged (more frequently) by the widespread assumptions I run into by both Christians and non-Christians that right-wing fundamentalist Christian piety is the 'real' Christian piety. I think it is antithetical to everything Christ taught.

          Most of the people I know who identify as Christians are extremely progressive. That includes everyone from evangelicals to Catholics.

          I think it's hard to avoid that, if you're really listening to what Jesus talks about.

          •  do we run in the same circles?! (0+ / 0-)

            This is largely the case for me as well; most of our relationships with 'religious' people are with other Christians passionate about social justice and peace issues. Although, our families and larger circles do include some very right-wing fundies; my daughter just told me this week that a favorite family member "doesn't believe in dinosaurs." I was stunned, but realized why my suggestion a few years ago that she take her family to the Royal Tirrell dinosaur museum in Alberta, Canada had met with such a blank response...

            I try very hard to be both bluntly myself and open-hearted in my relating to the whole spectrum of our family, friends. At times it is a huge challenge. We recently moved to Tanzania for a 5-year term of volunteer work--and I have to confess some real relief that we are not right in the throes of this year's election tension.
