|Jesus Is a Liberal Democrat|
The conservatives have never been more toxic. I wish America would 'wake up.'
I confess that I winced when in the viddy baby Jesus, in the mythical birth story, was turned into a ham. Hilarious, but in a way that conservatives and fundamentalists are unlikely to appreciate - to say the least.
Here is text of the ending of the viddy [Remember that comedian Stephen Colber 'plays' a conservative TV-show host in his show in order to satarize conservative punditry]:
It hurts me to say this, folks, but if Jesus really is a liberal, it's time to get the Christ out of Christmas [the face of Christ in a graphic behind Colbert changes to that of Frosty the Snowman].
Now, listen, listen, listen, you know me, you know me, I'm no fan of the term Xmas, or X-anything. I make my kids play Christ-box 360. And if they break a bone, they get Christ-rays. But it is time to take baby Jesus out of the manger. Replace him with something that is easier to swallow. How about a honey-baked ham? [Baby Jesus in a graphic changes to that of a baked ham in the manger.]
Because if this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor either we've got to pretend that Jesus is just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it.
