CARTOON - REPUBLICAN JESUS once again captures the hypocrisy perfectly
"Republican Jesus" is a wonderful series irregularly seen at the satirical progressive site "Jesus' General": http://patriotboy.blogspot.com

Here RJ puts all the hypocrisy into one panel as only he can:

3. He wouldn't say anything....
He'd be too busy weeping.

4. That's what I think too. He'd be so horrified by what has been done
all these centuries and now by the violent extreme fundies in his name. It is OPPOSITE from everything he taught and lived. His heart would break

5. The Jesus I know
Edited on Sat Mar-26-05 02:52 PM by DulceDecorum
once completely destroyed a market
because it had disobeyed the zoning laws.
(It was in His Father's House.)

When Jesus smote that produce,
trust me,
it remained smitten.

And yet some people
who were very slow on the uptake,
saw all that,
and STILL went and crossed the man.
He is STILL in the kitchen, making the Whoop-ass
and one of these days,
He just might finishing caning that last batch
and then it will be time for
the Last Supper.

Now, I know I am not invited to that particular banquet
but that it A-OK with me.
Especially since I know that the first course consists of
JC's Special Blend
signed and numbered,
limited edition,
custom designed,
individually packed
freshly opened,
full strength,
Can of Almighty Whoop-Ass.

There is a difference.

6. Thanks Hope.
They take the concept of "taking the Lord's name in vain" to ever greater heights.

As the bumper sticker says: "Jesus is Coming. And is He Pissed."

10. I also like THIS bumper sticker, seen in Newton MA a couple months ago:
JESUS TO BUSH: STOP USING ME FOR A REFERENCE!

17. yes, when he said "suffer the little children," that's NOT what he meant!
It's amazing to me how these people can claim to be avid followers of Jesus, but they act like they've never read his story or his teachings at all. Using his name to excuse hate and violence - he would be devastated to see it.

19. Oh yeah, DEFINITELY. I remember that multipanel cartoon and
have always thought that Republican Jesus captures its essence and expands it into additional areas, all with such a devastatingly simple format.
