The Intellectual Bankruptcy of the So-Called Conservative movement.
Columbus — Georgia Republican Party chairwoman Sue Everhart said Saturday that the party’s presumed presidential nominee has a lot in common with Jesus Christ. “John McCain is kind of like Jesus Christ on the cross,” Everhart said as she began the second day of the state GOP convention. “He never denounced God, either.”
And how did you come to this conclusion that, Sen. Juan McStain, is like Christ Jesus.
Everhart was praising McCain for never denouncing the United States while he was being tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. “I’m not trying to compare John McCain to Jesus Christ, I’m looking at the pain that was there,” she said.
Not comparing? But, you just did. I don’t even know where to begin with this statement. There’s a feeling that I have this woman, and like most of the sheeple, think the President is some kind of “all knowing” being. Which, he/or she, is not.
Comparing the two is as goofy as the day is long. One thing, Christ died for all of our sins. Talk about pain !! There’s a lot of sinners out there. That’s real pain.
Sen. McStain, like any other President, or Presidential candidate, is not some messianic figure. He’s a man, with flaws. Big one’s if you ask me. But none the less, not some “Holier than thou” person, who can bring about “change”. This all comes back to what writer Gene Healy calls, “The Cult of the Presidency“.
Reminds of todays readings at mass.
John 3:16-18 :16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. 18 He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God
Yep, sure, Sen. McStain is like Christ Jesus. Get a Life Lady.
