WWJB: What Would Jesus Be? Liberal Democrat, Of Course!
If Jesus were alive today, he would be a liberal Democrat.
Why? Because Jesus began his mission to help the needy; he would enact Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and the Affordable Health Care Act.
Christ would establish the minimum wage, job safety rules and laws against child labor. He would fight for collective bargaining. Jesus would institute clean air and clean water regulations, financial regulations, consumer protection rules, and public education funding.
Jesus would condemn corporate greed and the kind of “vulture capitalism” that has cost thousands of American workers their jobs, destroyed communities and made Willard Romney rich.
Christ would preach for the passage of the Dream Act that allows children of illegal immigrants to go to college and serve in the Armed Forces without fear of deportation.
He would remind us that we are all God’s children.
It is not who you love or how you love, but THAT you love.
Jesus taught us that we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper; that we must help the needy, the sick and poor.
Today, women’s rights, workers’ rights and civil rights are under attack by conservatives.
Jesus’ teachings and Christian/Judeo ethics form the moral basis of the Democratic Party. The Democrats’ long history of progressive legislation helps to improve the quality of life of all Americans.
This passionate mission for social justice by liberals is a testament to Christ’s life.
