8 June 2016. Here’s MY Christ!

00 Art Young. Jesus wanted poster. He stirreth up the people. 1913

Christianity is the Faith of the Publican… of Nikodim the Tax Collector… of Mariya Magdalene the Whore… not of the Pharisee… not of Caiaphas the Priest.. not of Pilate the Bureaucrat… think on that… here’s Art Young’s classic “wanted poster” of Jesus… here’s MY Christ! My Christ is the Christ who called “Scribes and Pharisees” (the Respectable and Religious) hypocrites… the Christ Who outed the “religious” of His day as phonies who laid burden upon burden upon people, lifting not a finger to help anyone. If your Christianity isn’t a scandal in some way to the Religious and Respectable, why, you have no real Faith at all… do think on that one, kids.

I stand with HH, who calls the Free Market a fraud… who stands with his friends no matter what (note well that he stands with Comrade Fidel, NOT Trump the Chump or Chilly Hilly)… who remembers the homeless on his birthday… who stands for economic justice, not an empty moralistic materialism (as one finds amongst the rightwing and “Evangelicals”). Our leader does his best to incarnate Christianity in our modern world… yes, Virginia, there are real Christians out there, and some are even clergy (mirabile dictu!)…
