Jesus would not ...

With the release of the movie “Son of God,” some so-called Christians will come out of the woodwork claiming that emulating the life of Jesus Christ would make America a much better country.

They are right, of course; they just have the wrong viewpoint.

Rather than stating “What would Jesus do?,” they should ask, “What would Jesus not do?

Jesus would not:

• Own an AR-15 or a handgun.

• Belong to the National Rifle Association.

• “Stand his ground,” even if he reasonably thought he was in danger.

• Allow unscrupulous billionaires to spend ungodly (pun intended) amounts of money to promote a personal, political agenda

• Prevent the working class from earning a decent wage just to protect corporate profits.

• Deny the poor in America the financial and medical assistance to better their lives and keep millions of children from going to bed hungry.

• Destroy the atmosphere of his Earth by making it inhospitable for all the plants and animals.

• Join the tea party.
