He does turn water into wine at every possible opportunity, but that's all I can think of

4. Um... destined to be crucified?
I mean, crucifixition was, after all, a penalty for crime, not a holy attribute...

16. Jesus may indeed existed...
but, maybe not... but there are alot of people, past, present and future, that have the same heart as the person they call Jesus...

There are many,many people that have a heart of life - unfortunately, many have a heart of death.

7. Vacations
Jesus spent lots of time in the wilderness. Who knows, maybe he was just clearing land down at the old ranch.

9. Jesus often discussed pharisees, and fundies are modern-day
pharisees.

Jesus often discussed tax-collectors (the greedy robber-barons of the day), Bush's oil boys and big pharma girls are the modern-day tax-collectors.

Jesus often discussed what to do about your enemies (love them), Bush tells us who our new "enemies of the week" are, so we can luv them, too.

27. Bush rode into Washington on a bunch of asses.
Edited on Tue Apr-25-06 12:37 AM by Democrats_win
Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem.

Jesus turned water into wine. Bush wines.

Jesus was the WORD made into a man. Man, Bush murders words.

Jesus was a man of his word. Bush pretends to be a man of his word.

Jesus fed the 5000, Bush took food from 5000 (at least)

Jesus threw the money changers out of church. Church money changers put Bush in.

Jesus died for our sins. Soldiers die for Bush's sins.

Jesus was a carpenter. Bush destroys things carpenters build.

Jesus lived in Roman times. Bush lives in Roman times.

Jesus wasn't born on Christmas. Neither was Bush.

Jesus was betrayed by a follower. Bush betrayed his followers.

Jesus was God's son. Bush is a son.

Jesus is Wisdom. Bush is dumb.

Jesus's kingdom is not of this world. Neither is bush's.

Soldiers gambled for Jesus's clothes. Bush gambles with soldiers lives.

Jesus had a virgin birth. Bush had a virgin berth on the U.S.S. Titanic.

Jesus is king of the world. Bush ran to the front of the Titanic and said "I'm the king of the world." Oh wait, that was Leonardo di Caprio. Bush is captain of the U.S.S. Titanic.

28. They'e both mass murderers?
Oh wait, no, I got Jesus mixed up with "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez. Nope. No similarities at all.

Bush turns water into WHINE, not wine.
