He opposed capital punishment. He told the rich to sell all they had and give to the poor. He told people to love their enemies. He violated the Sabbath. And on and on.

Re: Dems Attack Barr for Remark about Spying on Trump Campaign
There has actually been plenty of evidence of spying that came out in 2016. It wasn't Carlson or Hannity though, I believe it was Mark Levin who gave lots of evidence with dates. But wait and see. I can't wait until all the Leftists who have been making up lies about Trump's motives for this that or the other fall on their faces. Oh how I hope it finally comes to that. All you do is parrot the fake news.

Re: More attacks on the nation
Jesus did not oppose the death penalty, as neither did the Father. He's God, nothing He said contradicted the Father. As the Son of God He had all power over the Sabbath which is what he taught.

If there were evidence then Attorney General William Barr would have said there was evidence during his testimony before Congress, instead of saying the opposite. You're responding to my message that contains a short video clip of Barr actually saying he has no evidence, just concerns. Here it is again:

It wasn't Carlson or Hannity though, I believe it was Mark Levin who gave lots of evidence with dates.

If Mark Levin gave lots of evidence then please tell us what it was. And tell Barr, too, because he's obviously unaware that all this evidence exists.

In the human context, he was radical.

Re: More attacks on the nation
I guess you think that when Jesus said (as he supposedly did) "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." he meant that he wanted to go first.

Re: More attacks on the nation
I guess you think that when Jesus said (as he supposedly did) "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." he meant that he wanted to go first.

You mean that Faith must have also read that underground comic book, "The Further Adventures of Jesus Christ"? In that story, the crowd does assume that he had meant that he wanted to go first. When he walks away disgusted that the crowd didn't understand what he said, they get mad at him and bean him in the head with a stone.

In another story, he's doing his 40 days in the desert, so to handle the heat he turns himself into a camel. Immediately Satan arrives to tempt him and Jesus says, "Get behind me, Satan!" Satan replies, "Get behind a camel? Even I know better than to do that!"

And in another story, Jesus arrives in the present day (early 70's, Viet Nam War and the draft still going strong) and a policeman asks him for ID. Since he doesn't have his draft card with him, the policeman orders him to report immediately to the induction center. Checking him in, the old woman clerk asks him for his name. "Jesus Christ." "Hm, a Mexican-Greek. We don't get many of those."

And in yet another story, Jesus arrives in the present day and gets run over by a car. Three days later, he returns and something else kills him. Three days later, he returns and gets killed again, but this time in the background we see ICBMs flying. Three days later, he returns and all that's left of earth is a fragment of the surface.

Re: Dems Attack Barr for Remark about Spying on Trump Campaign
I suspect he's pretty sure there is evidence there, but he has to do the investigation to find out for sure and to make the case.

Re: More attacks on the nation
There was a cartoon of Jesus saying 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone' and a stone comes flying in from the crowd hitting the victim. He turns round to see who threw it and says 'mum, sometimes you really piss me off'.

Re: Dems Attack Barr for Remark about Spying on Trump Campaign
So Barr assumes that there should be evidence of "spying" (ignoring his attempts at falsely equivocating that with legitimate surveillance prompted by legitimate concerns), even though there is no actual evidence to base that on.

Yet you routinely castigate the other side for the same thing and less. And you expect us to cut you slack that you unequivocally deny us? Fuck you, you hypocrite!

You want the investigation to make the case? We want the same thing. We want to know what Mueller's findings are. We want to know what Trump's tax returns reveal. And yet your side keeps trying to keep that secret. Why? Why are you all so afraid of the truth? Because you already know that the truth will only incriminate you?

In the campaign, Trump made a big show that anyone who pleads the Fifth Amendment has something to hide and so is automatically guilty. Yet when Trump does the same thing and far worse, you are completely fine with that, you fucking hypocrite.

Have you actually read the Bible? Or even just the New Testament? Or even just the Gospels? Are you really that completely ignorant of what Jesus thought of hypocrites?
