    Jesus was a liberal

    This website makes a very strong case that Jesus is one of the most liberal leaders of all time.

    Not according to Dubya and the GOP... So this is fair game:

    according to the American Heritage Dictionary liberal is defined as:

    1a. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry. b. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded. c. Of, relating to, or characteristic of liberalism. d. Liberal Of, designating, or characteristic of a political party founded on or associated with principles of social and political liberalism, especially in Great Britain, Canada, and the United States.
    2a. Tending to give freely; generous: a liberal benefactor. b. Generous in amount; ample: a liberal serving of potatoes.

    Jesus really was a liberal!

    I particularly like the antonym:

    stingy

    I guess that makes conservatives stingy

    Snipe....

    Let's clarify something.

    While I do agree with a lot of W's policy's ... I don't agree with all of them...

    Church and State should be separate. Period. It says so in the constitution... which is why IMHO, people like Jesse Jackson should never be allowed to run for office..... If they have an affiliation with a church, they shouldn't be considered for public office. GWB may consider himself a religiously motivated man... but he's not a Pastor, Reverend, Priest or Rabbi.

    That said...I think Bush carries the religious factor just a little too far... Don't get me wrong, I think if kids want to pray in school, they should be allowed to.... and I don NOT think references to God should be removed from the National Anthem, etc... but there should be a happy medium...

    I also don't consider myself "conservative" as the definition applies.... certainly not liberal, although I do have some liberal views.... I suppose that makes me a "moderate"... who knows.... who cares...
    My point is.....


    what was my point anyway? Oh yes...

    Religion and politics don't mix.....:goof:

    I know...I know.... it was ambiguous....

    My point, however, is that the Dems have a rep for overspending, while the GOP is touted as being a little more "conservative" with their spending....

    all I was saying is that your post seems to punctuate that stereotype....
