The Political Irony Of The Christian Right

Jesus said, “Follow me.” He didn’t say, “Run for office in my name.”

I have had a sense of wonder about just how political some Christians have become these days. I see how hot they’ve been to stack the Supreme Court in ways that would support or favor their religion. I have even used the term, “Christian Supremacy” to raise awareness of their efforts to gain protection from a government that is supposed to serve us all. And I wondered, did Jesus ever get involved in politics?
