In one of the most crass examples of ripping off Christianity to make a cheap political point, Catholics United, a left-wing front group for the Democratic party, is running two radio commercials promoting President Obama’s stimulus package. What is despicable about the ads is not the content—which is inane—it’s the message it is sending on its website. To be specific, it titles its campaign, “The Economic Stimulus: What Would Jesus Do?”
Catholics United answers the question by clearly suggesting that Jesus would endorse Obama’s stimulus plan. And all along religious conservatives have been accused of saying God is a Republican. It doesn’t get much more shameless than this.
