Rick Perry as BarabbasSubmitted by rexmundi on Sun, 09/18/2011 - 10:14
I for one find the mainstream Evangelical movement to be so far removed from the message of Christ, that one is compelled to wonder; what exactly is it that they believe?
The Bible is chocked full of wonderful story's, parables, and metaphor's, like Es-op's fables, to break down complex ideas where even the most intellectually weak can comprehend.
The most relevant story in relationship between the GOP,it's rank and file, the MSM, the evangelical movement, and Ron Paul, is the story of Barabbas.
When presented with a choice of clemency by Pontius Pilate, of either Barabbas, a known huckster, famous for chicanery, and corruption, or Christ, who represented the truth and the light.
The people spoke, "with one voice" and cried for the pardon of Barabbas.
This story is designed to help the faithful understand that the people, en mass, will always choose Barabbas.
So, it is my suggestion that a large part of the GOP rank and file who claim they are Christian, have rejected the message of Christ, and have fallen into some quasi Zion worshiping, John Wayne, nukes for Jesus cult, that have been beaten into them by the MSM, and at this moment, are being offered a choice, similar to the one described above.
Not to try and equate Ron Paul with Christ; but whom will we choose? The epitome of empty suited, chicanery; Rick Perry, or will we choose the honesty and integrity of Ron Paul?
