The Rude Pundit

The Rude Pundit: "Let's be clear here: 'Christ' is shorthand for the fucked-up, backward ass, violent, hate-filled beliefs of Christian fundamentalism. It is not the Biblical 'Christ' and his words of, you know, love, peace, and fellowship. The Biblical Christ never says, 'Thou shalt exhort thine enemies to 'Bring it on.'' The Rude Pundit has said before that the Christ in the Bible is a liberal who invites us all to party on in a socialist heaven. That is a dude the Rude Pundit would like to break bread and fish with while suckin' down wine-from-water. That, however, is not the Christ who has been shoved in our faces by the evangelical right. They want Rambo Jesus, kickin' ass, a warring motherfucker who shows fags and secularists they better love the Lord or they're gettin' drop kicked into the fiery bowels of hell. Or voted out of office."
