I read with bemusement the recent rant in the Statesman by Troy Ingraham wherein in addition to reciting all the trite Democratic talking points, he called Republicans bozos and clowns. Republicans have become used to hearing such drivel, but Troy eliciting Jesus into the discussion to support his contempt of the mean Republicans was a bit disingenuous and self-serving.
I agree Jesus does know mean. Innocent of any crime, the dominant party of his time, disliking his teachings and the exposure of their hypocrisy, convinced the Romans to crucify him. They further desecrated his body, stabbing him to hasten the process. When dead they cast lots for the only thing that had value to them, his clothes.
Sound familiar, Mr. Ingraham? The war your party has declared against the unborn is systematic of your selfishness and callous views. You abort your unwanted children in a mean, heinous way. Should they survive the procedure you stop their little beating hearts. You then further desecrate them by selling the only thing that has value to you, their body parts to the highest bidder. Bozos and clowns is much too kind of a label for you. And Jesus weeps.
