What Would Rich Jesus Do?


1 comment

Mitt Romney recently said that all the complaining by Obama and others about wealth inequality and the rich is just petty envy of those who are successful. Rich = Successful = Superior. When he was reminded that Jesus condemned the rich and said they couldn’t be true Christians or get into heaven (yes, that’s what he really said, despite the rich perverting what he said about them by taking over and corrupting most of Christianity), Romney—like all good conservative Christians—condemned his publicly declared “Lord and Savior” Jesus in his mind as just another sour-grapes loser, envious of the rich.

Well, that’s what I heard.
