Would he say;
"give them health care"
"Islam worships my father, so leave them alone"
"No death penalty"
"let the immigrants in"
"help the people of Pakistan even though you consider them your enemies"
"help the people in need if you are able to"
If Jesus were alive today, do you really think he would be against Muslims building a mosque near Ground Zero, do you think he would not want to help the poor & needy, do you think he would only want healthcare for those who could afford it, do you think Jesus would want to keep immigrants out of America, do you think Jesus would be for the death penalty?
What are your thoughts? People always say "what would Jesus do"...Well....what do you really think he'd do? Do you think Jesus would think like a Conservative or a Liberal? Do you think he'd protest for gun rights, or non-violence?

My Jesus loves and embraces all, does not discriminate or judge and is able to forgive those who sin (which is all humans per the teachings of my faith). The message that I hear is to love thy neighbor, which IMO includes everyone, not just those who share my POV. My Jesus is perfect, so I believe the message even if I have trouble, at times, following his lead. It's part of life to stumble and fall, but having an open mind and heart and being willing to admit when you've done wrong is part of the journey to eternal salvation. The same concepts apply to everyone, IMO.

Jesus was never alive, so he didn't do anything in the past and wouldn't do anything now. That's the problem- people need to stop basing their decisions on myths and start actually caring about their fellow man. Religion has replaced human nature and perhaps that's why the world is so screwed up.
