I hope that this is already been talked about and studied in U.S. seminaries. A great theological conundrum.
One could, and some do, portray Jesus as a socialist (and yes, there is that whole ‘money changers’ thing (which could be equated to railing against Wall Street). I am sure Jesus would agree with most of Bernie’s ambitious social agenda.
But, then comes the thorny issue. Would Jesus vote for a man who does NOT believe in him?
In theory he could. But I think that would be hard even for Jesus. That is why the ‘WWJD‘ question has to be fully thrashed out soon — before the South Carolina Primary on February 27, 2016. [The Republican Primary is a week earlier.]
So wait for this Jesus moment.
Hillary = 45 Bernie = 36.
