Well, perhaps, although that seems to, according for what people say to come from the left or from non-believers mostly, but I suppose that comes from any group that may feel intimidated.

And well, there is one advantage for them though, they have something that is so true and magical for them to hold on, non-believers, on the other hand, they don't, other than human resources. And well, according to them, if you attack God's children, you attack God himself, and who can escape the wrath of God? ;)

According to the Bible if you rape a woman you should pay her family 50 shekels of silver then marry her, you also cannot divorce her for the rest of your life. Goes perfect with today's modern morals.

They're inconsistent

They blather on and on about how most of the country agrees with them then turn around and whine about being a persecuted minority

Crawl back into the catacombs and die already

Jesus would say that the term Christian Right-Winger is an oxymoron. Christianity is about bringing people together and forming a community where we take responsibility for eachother. The Republican Party however... I rest my case.

Uh, no... But I do know that he said "It's easier for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven." and I do know that he was speaking out against the idols and false prophets that distracted people from the common good, much like the celebrities and politicians that capitalism glorifies. And I do know that he was crucified for speaking out against the conservative society which were angered by his radical ways. So yeah I could pretty much say that he probably would.

Oh and I'm sure he would have just LOVED the idea of the death penalty as well.

you know that because of the New testament, that is if you believe in that book and that anything was written the way he said it. 8) gospels about him written by men years later and none of the gospels coincide with age and time or are coherent in any way.
You could say that from there on you can interpret what he would have said, but saying that what teh NT said is what he said is just about believing it or not :lol:
