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.
