How Would Jesus Vote?

There is an interesting article on Yahoo News about how Jesus would vote in the upcoming election.

The article has a few funny quotes. James C. Moore, co-author of "Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George Bush Presidential," "If ever there were a bleeding-heart liberal, it was Jesus Christ," Moore said at Congregation Agudas Achim synagogue. "I think the carpenter from Galilee was the original Democrat." Where as, conservative pastors such as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson "would have us believe that morality is all about where you stand on abortion, how you treat homosexuals. I think that is simply wrong," said John D. Moyers, senior fellow at the Washington-based Center for American Progress. Finally, The Rev. Timothy Tutt, pastor of United Christian Church in Austin, "As I read the Scriptures and as I understand faith, God's side is the group that's feeding the poor, caring about children, making sure that people have enough food to eat, not killing others," said Tutt, who opposes the war in Iraq.
