Was Jesus Christ a Liberal or Conservative?Posted by: briantheliberal
Was Jesus Christ of Nazereth, supposed son of god who was said to have fed the poor, healed the sick and disabled, opposed the wealthy, and accepted everyone regardless of their sins more liberal or conservative based on modern political standards? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkKPtUywY-8
Jesus was a Liberal.
Jesus was a Conservative.
If he existed, of course.
Liberals are generally more progressive. Jesus was crucified for being progressive
Promoting women's rights ans ideas of sharing wealth... Pretty liberal ideas. Generally, 'be nice to each other' tends to be a liberal idea...
At the time his ideas were liberal, but today being a Christian is a conservative belief and liberals are mostly agnostic or atheist. He was definitely not the latter.
The Irony! If fundamentalists actually read the bible they would realise Jesus wanted to eat the rich! Mathew 19:24- 'Again I tell you- it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.' He also said all those things about equality. He would probably be pro-gay marriage too. I am right wing but I am not Christian. I don't think that's a contradiction. I think it's the opposite.
He supported slavery...
Since Jesus was mainly concerned with spiritual matters and an individual's relationship with God, the references that talk about helping the poor make more sense when attributed with private charities rather than large-scale government measures. Also, he didn't oppose the wealthy but the selfishness that can come with being rich.
I um.. accidentally voted on this poll, so I guess this is the most logical position?
He'd obviously have socially conservative positions. They're the ones supported by the Bible.
Jesus wouldn't support abortion (The killing of God's children) he also dislikes government, so he won't like socialism.
