Would Jesus Christ Say What The Christians Say?
Right wing politicians and activists have gotten into the habit of proclaiming that their political opinions are the will of their deity, the creator of the universe, and the incarnation of that deity on Earth, the demigod Jesus Christ. Their methods for determining the political opinions of the divine are questionable, consisting of little more than “praying on it”, but doubt doesn’t seem to enter into the process.
A fantastic parody of this prophetic tendency of right wing extremists can be found at Tea Party Jesus. The format is simple, yet brilliant. The words of high profile Christian politicians and political activists are cut and pasted onto drawings of Jesus, so that Jesus himself is depicted as the speaker. The result, as the site describes it, is “the words of Christians in the mouth of Christ.”
