What Would Jesus Do?

by Dick Mac

According to Spirit of Truth Community, a St. Paul, Minnesota-based Christian group "that strives to put love and justice at the center of everything we do. . . . ", Jesus would support President Obama's jobs-creation plan.

Most politicians who pass themselves off as Christian (Michelle Bachmann, from Minnesota, comes to mind), vehemently oppose the jobs plan, saying it is bad for America.

Spirit of Truth has decided to confront Bachmann:

"Jesus would support this bill," said Brandon Nessen, the group’s spokesperson. "Ask the wealthiest to contribute so that ordinary families can get back on two feet again."

I think he might be on to something!

"A group of church-going progressives will descend on her Woodbury office to ask her to support President Obama's jobs bill, which would use revenue from taxes on the wealthiest Americans to pay for infrastructure projects and other bipartisan policies aimed at stimulating job growth," the group's statement said.

Spirit of Truth will re-enact the biblical story of the loaves and fishes to feed thousands of hungry people, a story they say is a lesson for all of us to help those less fortunate.

I look forward to hearing about Bachmann's reaction (which I suspect will be non-existent).
