Actor, pundit, and comedian John Fugelsang, in honor of Independence Day, recorded this commentary, “America’s Not A Christian Nation – But Jesus Would Be An Awesome President” for Current TV’s “Viewpoint.”

“Wouldn’t the fundamentalist Christians you know really want to vote for Jesus Christ for president?,” Fugelsang asks.

“Who wouldn’t want to vote for an American president who was a peaceful radical nonviolent revolutionary guy who hung out with lepers, hookers and criminals, who never spoke English — was not an American citizen. A guy who was anti-wealth, anti-possessions, anti-self defense, anti-greed, anti-death penalty completely, anti-public prayer (Matthew 6:5 — he was) but never once anti-gay, never mentioned abortion, never really mentioned premarital sex, never justified torture, never called the poor lazy, never asked a leper for a copay, never fought for tax cuts for the wealthiest Nazarenes, and was a long-haired, brown-skinned — it’s in Revelation, I didn’t write it — brown-skinned, homeless, community organizing, pro-womens’ rights, Middle Eastern outrageously liberal reformer Jew.”

That was AWESOME! While I have been a Pagan for the last 35 years, Jesus is on my list of people I would like to have dinner with. I always thought he would be pissed at how his words have been twisted into a weapon against the very people he was trying to help. I thought a white Jesus was odd when I was a kid. This was the first of many issues I had with modern Christianity.
Imagine when Aliens want to study religion and they discover a bloody man hanging on a cross and the humans are eating his body and drinking his blood!
I was baptized in the Lutheran church and forced to go to catechism and conformation as an Episcopalian before I left to find a religion that satisfied my spiritual needs.

Please Please let me know if you find a full transcription. This whole commentary needs to be put on the Democratic and or Independent Platforms!

I wonder if John Fugelsang got any hate mail from the wing nuts, blasting him for describing Jesus as a really decent being. This is the most perfect put down I've heard yet.
