    Would Jesus vote Democrat or Republican?

    Do people who strongly believe in Jesus vote Republican or Democrat?

    I've never really understood this contradiction and I think it makes absolutely no sense.

    Jesus would NOT vote at all , he could care less who the hell is in power. I dare say BOTH the democrats & republicans would find a way to kill Jesus.

    He would kick them both out of Congress.

    He's essentially done it before. ;)

    Isn't it obvious? He'd vote for the People's Liberation Front of Judea.

    There's no way he'd vote for Judean People's Front, the Judean Popular People's Front, the Campaign for a Free Galilee or even the Popular Front of Judea.

    I mean, after all what have the Romans' ever done for us? Well, apart from...

    Leading his followers to a nearby holy grotto, he would get hit by a truck speeding around the corner and die on the crosswalk. The new symbol of christian sacrifice will be "D R O F".

    This says that 54% of Hispanic voters have Conservative Ideology yet 51% vote Democrat.

    Jesus never advocated Christianity as a religion or a political party. Based on reports, he was just a dude preaching the good word. :p

    Just because they have a conservative point of view does not mean they are in line with the GOP, which is to the very extreme right.

    being "conservative" and being a republican is NOT the same.

    Neither. I honestly believe he would be facepalming at all of us here for misconstruing and fanaticizing all of the work he's done, and how we've messed it up in his name.

    He'd chastise us, then forgive us, then show us what the right ways to handle things are.

    Politics would have no bearing on it, because we all would be wrong, as we stopped being enlightened, instead of taking more from the Enlightenment period that brought us the Constitution.

    He would get betrayed before he even got the chance to vote. There's no room for idealists in this age.

    I'm hoping "Jesus" would be someone with half a brain to realize that Democratic and Republican are just words for oppression of the people and free the world somehow :)

    Jesus's life was shaped by the situation in which he lived. He had no right to vote, therefore it is nearly impossible for us to speculate his actual political views.

    Jesus was a Zealot. He wouldn't vote. He was an anti-government rabble rouser. For this reason, the Romans (possibly tipped off by the Jews, but probably not the case) put Jesus to death. He wasn't some nice guy and he certainly wasn't a carpenter. He was an illiterate devout Jew who was raised in a period of political discourse (He was born under a Roman appointed king and died under a Roman governor).

    man would break all his windows and Christians would kill him before he could do anything. He would never be like what people have pictured in their heads so therefore he was just trying to fool them and they would go after him with a huge vengeance.

    He was a liberal Jew in his time. He worked on Saturday, which was a big no no at that time. He wasn't kosher, saying that all food was dirty when it left the body.

    He wouldn't have the right to vote today, either. Last I check, he wasn't a citizen. His family immigrated from Egypt. And no sources stating that he ever became a Roman citizen.

    The Romans put him to death to appease the Jews. Pontius Pilate lobbied for Jesus to be spared. He even when to so far as to give them a choice between a harmless rabble rouser (Jesus) and a convicted murderer (Barabbas) be granted freedom. He must have PO'd the Jews something fierce for them to prefer releasing a death row murderer.

    He made famous the idiom "washing my hands of someone/something."

    Proof positive that Jesus wasn't a Roman citizen. Pilate would have freed Jesus if he was, regardless of what the Jews wanted.

    If he lived in a red state, he would likely be disenfranchised for not being able to obtain proper ID. Still waiting to see his birth certificate.

    Are you implying that 54% of Hispanics are called Jesus? That seems a bit high.
