Jesus As Hillary's Ventriloquist's Dummy

What would Jesus do? Well, that depends upon the liberal cause of the moment.

Cal Thomas has a fine article digesting the New York Times' nauseating gibberish about Hillary Clinton's "faith," and finds that Hillary's faith is mostly in her politics and channels her wisdom through Jesus's mouth.

Liberal faith, which is to say a faith that discounts the authority of Scripture in favor of a constantly evolving, poll-tested relevancy to modern concerns - such as the environment, what kind of SUV Jesus would drive, larger government programs and other "do-good" pursuits - ultimately morphs into societal and self-improvement efforts and jettisons the life-changing message of salvation, forgiveness of sins and a transformed life.
