32. The Gospels are the true liberal part of the book

I mean think about Jesus. He didn't have a job, didn't have any money and wandered around the countryside hoping that people would provide him a place to stay and the occassional meal (if he wasn't making meals himself). Jesus scorned the leaders of the temple while embracing people in society who normally are considered outcasts like tax collectors and prostitutes.

Right-wing religious crazies rarely quote Jesus when they do their bidding - they are more of Paulists, who was the first Christian fundamentalist out there.
