16. Jesus said a prophet has no honor in his own land. Here is Moore, who

has pretty much dedicated his life to exposing the exploitation of the poor and disenfranchised by the wealthy and he is shunned. Another thing that Jesus said was that if you walked the walk and took up the cross that he bore that the world would reject you. I don't know if Michael Moore is a Christaian or what his philosophy is, but if you look at his works, there's no way that you cannot say that he is not emulating Jesus in a lot of ways, making fun of the rich and the self righteous and championing the cause of the poor and downtrodden.
