Tea Party Jesus: Blog Puts Words Of Conservatives In The Mouth Of Christ (PICTURES)

The concept behind the site Tea Party Jesus is simple: Put the words of conservative Christian social and political figures in the mouth of Christ. The juxtaposition of hateful, ignorant, or otherwise nonsensical rants with serene photos of JC himself isn't only funny, but says a lot about the people who claim to be Christians. With the site's permission, we've compiled some of our favorites so far. From the predictably fiery Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter to various pastors, radio hosts, and senators, these quotes are real, with quote sources linked to in the caption of each slide. If you go to the actual site, you can click on each photo to reveal the person behind the quote, making for for a jaw-dropping game of who-said-what.

1. Even Jesus would be aghast at...
...Bill O'Reilly and Ann Coulter.

All the Republicans in my Family blocked me years ago, even my Son.

9. Your Son? Oh babs... I'm so sorry...
I feel your pain, really, I do. My oldest hasn't spoken to me since I divorced his father... the pain is unbearable. But to cut ties for partisan reasons... oh honey... that hurts.

:hug:

I've somehow managed to remain in communication with my Fundy/Pubbie relatives... but political discussion is banned, even from the family website. Though I did see a poll pop up asking if anyone had a problem with such discussions, and it was a 10 to 2 ratio in favor of keeping the discussions. They hate that radical black man, donchano.

4. It's some funny stuff
I notice a fair amount of the art used is Mormon stuff, Jesus (and other Middle Easterners) all look like they're from an Aryan Nations compound, so having the reich wing speak through those images is especially humorous.
