Jehovah Made This Whole Joint For You

Garry Willis has written an interesting article at the New York Times about the intersection of Politics and Christ has tended to dumb down what Christ was all about. I don't necessarily agree with everything he says, but it gives one something to think about.
He was never that thing that all politicians wish to be esteemed — respectable. At various times in the Gospels, Jesus is called a devil, the devil's agent, irreligious, unclean, a mocker of Jewish law, a drunkard, a glutton, a promoter of immorality.

The institutional Jesus of the Republicans has no similarity to the Gospel figure. Neither will any institutional Jesus of the Democrats.
I'd also like to note that the name of Ann Coulter's book, to be released on June 6, 2006, will be entitled "Godless: The Church of Liberalism." She was on Fox talking about it, and called the date (6-6-6) her "little tribute to liberalism."

Seriously I can't think of too many things more depressing than Ann Coulter taking on the subjects of Liberals and Religion. Maybe dead kitties, but there would have to be a lot of them.
