Q: Do you think that Jesus would be voting for Louie Gohmert.
Fugelsang: [chatter] I don’t think that. And I think Jesus would have a lot of problems with the two-party system as it now stands. However, Louie Gohmert’s agenda and the agenda of most of right-wing Christians are exactly what Jesus talks about in Matthew 25. I mean this was a guy who was a radical non-violent revolutionary, hung out with lepers, hookers and crooks. Never spoke English. Wasn’t an American citizen. Anti-wealth. Anti-public prayer, Matthew 6:5 — you know what I’m talkin’ about Reverend Barry. Never anti-gay. Never mentioned abortion. Long-haired, brown-skinned, community organizing, homeless, middle eastern, unarmed Jew. That’s the guy we’re talkin’ about. Jesus couldn’t get a job at House of Pancakes in this society now and Louie Gohmert and his ilk would be the first ones lining up to nail Him all over again.

@NoahCRothman: I'd consult Fugelsang on theology like I'd consult Rosie O'Donnell on metallurgy and structural engineering.
