Don’t blame Jesus

My early Christian training taught me that Jesus fed the poor, healed the sick and stood for peace. George Bush pads the pockets of the powerful and greedy, removes basic services for the poor, contributes to the decline in citizens with health care, lowers air quality standards so we have an exponential rise in childhood asthma and lung disease, does nothing about global warming which will have catastrophic impact on our descendants and uses an arsenal of WMDs to bully the world. I have no doubt that Mr. Bush answers to a higher power, but it’s not the man from Nazareth.
