Sometimes, you can’t make this kind of stuff up. Rep. Steven Cohen (D-TN) said from the floor of the House of Representatives:
I submit to you, Mr. Speaker, that the parties have differences, but if you want change, you want the Democratic Party. Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus, who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor.
Great. So, now the Democrats are actively making the comparison between Barak (The Nazarine) Obama and Jesus Christ. Donna Brazile made the same exact quote on CNN (I believe) – I heard it with my own ears.
I added the “Nazarine” nickname as a joke.
You know what’s hysterical about this? How wrong the comparison is.
Community organizers exist in a specific community. Jesus was renown for moving from town to town.
Community organizers get paid. By all accounts, Jesus only owned the clothes on his own back.
Community organizers tell people where to go for things like healthcare. Jesus said “come to me” to heal people.
Jesus’ job was to make miracles. It’s a miracle that most community organizers have jobs.
I mean, the differences between Barak Obama and Jesus of Nazareth are striking. But really, that’s not really what’s the problem with the analogy here. It’s clear Steven Cohen has NEVER read the Gospels, because had he did, he would have never made such an idiotic statement.
It was the Jewish high religious council (called the Sanhedrin) that arrested Jesus. They didn’t want to condemn one of their own, so they sent him to Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate initially refused to condemn Jesus.
So Pontius Pilate put it to a vote of the masses. The same “community” that Jesus (allegedly) “organized”.
We all know what happened next.
Yes, this is the supreme intellect that drives the Democrat party. Maybe if they all think real hard, they can produce a fart.
But, you know the most striking part about this comment? Remember the “sacred” wall between Church and State that Democrats are always harping about? Remember how liberals and Democrats are constantly telling us about how religion and policy making should never be intertwined?
Where was Cohen when he made this stupid, idiotic comparison? That’s right: giving a speech on the floor of the US House of Representatives. So much for the “sacred” wall that separates Church and State…which means that when they pull out that tired old line, it’s tantamount to crap.
It should also be noted that Rep. Steven Cohen is Jewish. Which makes the statement all the more sad and hysterical. But, it does display his utter ignorance on the life and times of Jesus Christ. What’s doubly sad and hysterical is how no one in the media has thus far pointed all of this out (to my knowledge).
What a bunch of morons.
Like I said: sometimes, you just can’t make this kind of stuff up.
