Jesus would be maligned by Congress: AOC

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that if Jesus walked through the doors of the Congress, he might be ’maligned as a radical over his social positions’. AOC was addressing a Committee on Oversight and Reform hearing which was focusing on claims that the Trump administration had rolled back LGBTQ rights.

I mean, she’s not wrong in saying that Jesus would be considered a radical. Loving ones enemies, helping the poor, paying taxes... that being said, saying that because Jesus said “love your enemies” he’d be in favor of gender reassignment surgery is a bit of a stretch.

And I sayith onto thee, men shall dress as women and readith to children. Cut thine own dick off if it pleases you. And let the Government control what you say and do. Also, dont turn the other cheek. Just call people Nazis if they piss you off-ith. Amen.

While I am an ardent supporter of free speech, it does rub me the wrong way when those who clearly do not study nor follow the words of Jesus or God use them as a club or shield against those they disagree with. It is no better than those who cherry pick Bible verses to support their agenda or girls who tattoo them on their bodies to feel edgy or unique.

Of course he would be not hating his own culture. Advocating for religion to rise presence over all else in a persons life. Claiming marriage is between one man and one woman and that divorce is wrong. Why he’d been deemed a regular white suprematist if he was in todays congress.

Jesus would say "I told you to love your neighbor, not tax him to pay for programs that make you feel as if you are the one doing the good deed." Jesus would have been calling for increases in Roman taxation and free food for the poor if he were anything like AOC imagines.
