Steven Colbert was right, Jesus is a socialist. Here's how you can tell. Think of the group that best embodies Christian life. Aren't they run by tyrannical leaders and surrounded by the bodies of the dead, killed by the leader's closest allies? They are, aren't they?
Yep, Jesus is a socialist. Makes sense to me.
Who can forget that classic line from the Sermon on the Cambodian Mount? "Blessed are the peacemakers, particular when they drive people out of the cities to slaughter them in the countryside."
