I'm so tired of listening to all the debate and the cliches that are coming out of each of the political party's mouthpieces. But I am particularly annoyed by hearing the following from three different people today. It is so obvious that it is not an original line but rather one that willing accomplices seem to have latched onto and are spreading like a bad rash.

"Jesus was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor."
Oh please give me a break here. One of the people I heard saying it was Susan Sarandon. Like I would ever take political advice from her anyway.
I don't know how you feel, but the Jesus I love and serve doesn't fit into any job description and can't be described by definitions that we try to assign to make ourselves feel better or use for political advantage (i.e. community organizer, liberal, or even conservative).

Well, if you put lipstick on a pig, it is still a pig.
