I chose none. Jesus was supposed to be making way for a spiritual kingdom, not a physical one.

Good answer. You're obviously not a Republican.

he'd satnd up againt the powers to be and fight the good fight against all teh bad shit thats happening.  probably get nailed up for it too, again.

im not religous but from what ive been told to believe about him he is an impartial fair type of person.  and liek silversouls daid wouldnt recognize the current system.

i picked other but meant none :frown:  current government is obviously good enough or people would be changing it.

Jesus would probably see right through the illusions of our political system and treat all politicians impartially, just as he would treat everyone else.

I chose none

I would select liberation theologist - seems most compatible with his teachings - not really a government thing though - more a community based commune/cooperation activity.

The early christians sound more like communists than anything. God knows where these fundamentalist christians get off on worshipping George Bush.

Im not sure if you are aware, but Jesus was a real person. The only thing in dispute is his credibility as the son of God. I agree the bible is fiction, but there is some evidence of truth in it when it talks about the apostles and stuff. Those were all real people who supported Christ. We can only question whether he was our savior.

I believe that Jesus would probably be a peaceful religious anarchist.

Jesus was never really that interested in politics. He made one comment about it to drop all responsibility of it on others to interpret.

If Jesus came back he would send massive fireballs and destroy the republican and democrat caucases in a fiery storm of rage.

jesus was a compassionate and generous guy who wanted to help people out, especially the poor, so maybe he'd be a socialist. at the same time, he was a peaceful man, so maybe he'd be a libertarian. i have a feeling that he wouldn't take much of an interest in politics at all though. i voted for 'none'.

Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God.


I think this line rules Jesus out of being a Bush supporter..

Stupid question. Jesus would be an independent if the Biblical Jesus really existed. The Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet and believe he will return during the last days. The fact that you didn't know this shows how unqualified you are to ask this question.


The second coming of Jesus according to the Muslims:

There are plenty of capitalists who would share bread and fishes. It's called charity. The difference between this and socialism is that no force is involved.
