I can guarantee you Jesus Christ is a Republican because he does not believe in abortion.

I’ve grown tired of this conversation about if Jesus was a Democrat, if Jesus was a Republican. I’m pretty sure he was neither. And he certainly wasn’t an American. Jesus was, after all, Jewish. He was a Hebrew. As far as political parties, I would guess he would be an independent, definitely not a Republican. He had nothing to do with hatred, the venom coming from the Republican Party of late, the hatred against anybody different. No wonder the most pictures you see, they show Jesus as a white man with blue eyes. No. I ain’t going to teach you about the Bible, but Jesus definitely wasn’t a white man with blue eyes and he wasn’t a Republican, wasn’t a Democrat. All this political stuff, he would certainly be against it all. Jesus was about love, love everyone. I really worry about the future, I really do. God bless you. May your God be with you.

    It is a sorry state when people argue over whether Jesus is a Democrat or a Republican. And to argue over abortion is even more ridiculous. Personally I believe a woman should not have to have the government telling her what she can and can’t do with her body. Does a man have to have a vote if he “donates” his sperm to an unwilling partner? NO. He goes on his merry way. IF he gets caught, a court verdict is hard set to convict because the WOMAN is put on trial, her lifestyle, her way of dress, her conversations, her past.. I thought there was a law about mixing Church and State. Leave Jesus out of Politics
