Christian right ignores many of Jesus’ teachings

When I am not actually deploring their acquisitiveness, bombast and intolerance, I kind of feel sorry for partisans of the Republican/Christian right. For surely, as they blast the “liberal media,” rail about “giving more to those who don’t do the bare minimum to fend for themselves” (Everybody’s Column, March 17) and generally whine about wanting their country back, it must occur to them, every now and then, just how little they are like, and how little they emulate, their own professed savior. Jesus of Nazareth – now there was a social activist and dyed-in-the-wool liberal! Someone who understood, lived and taught the social contract. May his memory serve as a blessing for all humanity.
