Jesus was a Commie

We have hit a new low in US politics. Apparently twisting the text of the Bible to suit their needs isn't enough for the Conservative Wackadoodles anymore; there is a call for a version of Bible edited to comport with the Wackadoodle Agenda, which, I'm horrified to report, seems to be creeping in to extinguish mainstream conservative politics.

Creeping? Who am I kidding? Are their really any mainstream conservatives anymore? It seems anyone with the sense enough to come to their own conclusions and not blindly agree with Limbaugh and that hatemonger Beck gets labeled a "Liberal" and ridiculed by their own party. Maybe the moderate conservatives are just quieter now out of a fear of being labeled, but common sense should never take a backseat to wackadoodle.

But back to my point. I'm not naive enough to think the Bible hasn't been "interpreted" in so many different ways that the real meaning of some, even key, passages may be seriously skewed anyway. And there are undoubtedly parts missing and so on - you run that risk with such an ancient work authored by so many. But to purposefully edit it to suit your political needs? My goodness - what would Jesus say about that?

Oh, and since Jesus would probably be a huge fan of social reform, universal health care, amnesty, helping our common man, and compassion to all (even undocumented workers!) and all that other mamby pamby whiney liberal bullshit, the irony of this proposal is almost painful.

Thanks to for bringing to light the "liberal corruption of the Bible." I had no idea that King James was one of those deviant Obama followers, but you live and learn.


Thanks for reading - I heart comments! Please keep them at least vaguely on topic and respectful, thanks!
