Re: faithful nation gets Jesus wrong

It is clearly stated in the New Testament that the human Jesus was
a male. God on the other hand is Spirit, and I assume "he" has
no specific gender ...... but who knows?

Cheers,

Charlie

Green Party- no problem

NOW - Jesus was a man for God's sake. Don't you see the problem there. They want a religious figure that is non-gender biased.

Dems - they've always been big God fans.

NAACP - No problem w/ God.

ACLU - I think their problem is that they hate God. No ten commandments in court, no prayer in school, no "under god" in the pledge of allegiance.

But isn't that what Jesus taught? Render unto Ceasar . . .

I don't think ACLU has a problem with Jesus. They have a problem with people who use his name to accomplish their political goals.

Nope! - The ACLU would support his freedom to assemble and Jesus himself would not want to be a part of Government!
