So here we go. Many Conservatives believe they are doing Gods work. Most liberals think that If there was a God there is no way he is a Conservative. The question there arises if he isn't a Conservative then is he Liberal. Or Is he conservative as the Conservatives believe today?


The bible is pretty clear that Jesus is protector of the people who can not do for themselves, The poor the disabled the oppressed. He opposed money as was shown when he flips the money changers tables in Jerusalem. Does this on the other hand promote militancy as long as it righteous?


In my mind Jesus is as Liberal as they come. Jesus would be the ultimate Liberal in my mind. Willing to battle for the poor and the needy the right man to battle the rich and the oppressors.

I'm not sure it would matter what side of the border you are on. Both Parties are pretty much mirrors of each other in the States and in Canada. The major difference here is that before the Conservative Party of Canada was taken over by the Reform Party, which is basically what the Republican party in the states is now. They lost any strength when they ran on their social issues so they suppressed them to make themselves more palatable to Canadians and then integrated with the Conservative party.

From time to time you can hear what the Canadian Neocons really think. Most of the time it is quelled here, Not so much in the states. And Liberals are just liberals. They are the same north of the border as they are south of the border.

LMAO. You always give me a good laugh. Thanks Clown.


Edit that was not nice of me.


I apologize for not making the threads to your liking Charlie the Unicorn. Since your track record now is to come to my threads and say how much you don't like them. Perhaps the ignore function would be a good start to alleviate your pain.

Thanks.

Jesus' actions in the Temple of throwing the money lenders tables over is actually more evidence of his social liberalism. He was in fact standing against those with money and power who were taking advantage of the poorer disadvantaged people. He showed that he was against the political structure of the church (the biggest complaint of many churches today, especially the Roman Catholic Church).
Although he never approved of the actions of theives, adulterers, murderers, etc. he always loved them and showed them a better way to live.

I was actually thinking of doing that but just thought it was going to be too tough since many religions are more conservative and less conservative and it would kind of get too complicated. Jesus existing or not is irrelevant. Under their bibles "What would Jesus do?"

I agree, but people can intrepret the Bible many different ways.

Remember, not believing in Jesus will bring a punishment of eternal suffering, and yet, he is known for his 'mercy'.

He also will forgive thieves and murderers who believe in him with no thought for earthly justice.

In short, the 'Jesus' persona is whatever people want him to be, and as such, he is all over the damn place.

Why are we even associating Jesus to politics? You can't categorize him with an ideology, it's Jesus. It's the people who interpret his works that end up labeling him with some kind of political theory, Jesus himself is on his own.
