Pious GOP Celebrates Christ in a Perverse Manner
One translation of a lovely quote from Jesus Christ is: "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
- Matthew 25:45
Actually, the so-called Christians running for the Republican nomination for the presidency, U.S. Senate, down to the local school board, loudly acclaiming their devotion to Christ, don't know much about tolerance, compassion and peace.
When they take their campaign money from Wall Street, the military-industrial complex, or America's abundant supply of the merchants of hate, they betray Christ.
Such notions as compassion and peace tend to get in the way of the path to the Republican nomination for public office now-a-days.
Much easier to demonize gays, Muslims, the working class, blacks, and when expedient: Jews.
