"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."
I stole the media graphic at left from another blog. Obviously, it is an attempt to portray Jesus in a warped and twisted way as A Republican That Democrats Love To Hate. But it got me to thinking, and what I came up with was an inspiration to meet silly satire with silly satire. If we have a Republican Jesus, then we have to have a Democrat Jesus, right?
So with tongue firmly in cheek - and at the risk of being struck by a bolt of lightning on this Good Friday - here is my Democrat Jesus, and his (with a small “h”) Sermon on the Mount:
Blessed art President Obama, for he has his plan and he can keep his plan.
Blessed art Vice President Biden, for he knows that “jobs” is a three-letter word.
Blessed art Harry Reid, for he knows that it ain’t over until it’s over.
Blessed art Nancy Pelosi, for she now knows what’s in it.
Blessed art Hillary Clinton, may she discover what difference it makes.
Blessed art the abortionists, for they are doing God’s work.
Blessed art the homosexuals, for they have received God’s greatest gift.
Blessed art the marijuana users, for on their death beds they shall receive total consciousness.
Blessed art the atheists, for they know how things really are.
Blessed art the United States Armed Forces, for now they neither have to be asked - nor do they have to tell.
And last but not least:
Blessed art the Republicans. With abundant hope for change to move forward in the upcoming election season, may they inherit the Senate.
Of course, a Democrat Jesus wouldn’t in a million years utter the last “beatitude,” but this is after all a silly satire. But there’s one actual beatitude delivered by Jesus on the mount that Republicans can take to heart because - in today’s America (blue and red) - they are living it:
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” (Matthew 5; 11 NIV)
“…..because of me.”
Think about it.
