How Would Jesus Vote? Christian Politics in the State Of Lost Causes - Comments

some asshole's Avatar Comment 1 by some asshole

We all know that Jesus was a typical conservative: Didn't believe in equality; hated the poor and felt no need to help them; loved the rich and felt that they always got that way by working hard and waving American flags; was intensely xenophobic... You know how it goes. Jesus would've written in "Bush" on the card.

I was encouraged to read that Herb Silverman intends to write in Steven Colbert when he votes next week. I am not sure if there is going to be a space for write-ins on the ballot, but hope he is able to do so, and that his vote gets counted.

Stephen Colbert on the most recent episode of his show addressed the fact that write-ins will not be allowed in the South Carolina primary. He stated that voters who wished to write him in should instead place their vote for Herman Cain -- who, while no longer running, cannot be removed from the "locked" ballot.

Since South Carolina has an open primary, included in those urged to vote in this manner by Colbert were liberals, moderates, college students, and fans of the show. It would be pleasing to see a significant turnout of such voters simply to build some momentum against apathy among young voters in this country.
