What do you think Jesus would do?

In response to the column "Jesus would be a liberal Democrat" (March 19), it’s always easy to use, or misuse, Jesus to make a political point, although good taste dictates against it.

But here goes: 1. His followers were armed; Peter cut off the ear of a Roman soldier. 2. Jesus was "Zealous after the Law" (of Moses), and while he admonished us to "Love one another" he never spoke against capital punishment, which was part of the law.

3. Herod was king then; Obama is president now; Herod appointed his minions to rule the temple; Obama appoints his minions to rule the country.

Herod’s priests ignored the law (of Moses); Obama’s czars ignore the Constitution.

Herod allowed money changers in the temple; Obama allows money changers in the White House.
