What Would Jesus Do? A Rebuttal to Peter Wehner’s NYTimes article
From the Last English Prince:
Peter Wehner, a political throat-cutter masquerading as a journalist placed a pithy column on the page of the New York Times on March 1st. Right in time for “Super Tuesday”, he titled his screech “What Wouldn’t Jesus Do?” Below the headline is an image of Donald Trump with his head bowed in prayer.
A pastor of a church in Council Bluffs, Iowa is providing a holistic prayer complete with what is known as “laying on of hands”. Mr. Wehner chose his convoluted title based on a religio-cultural phenomenon of the 1990’s which challenged Christians with a simple thought.
“What would Jesus do?” The thought was part moral imperative and part milk of human kindness. The acronym, WWJD, found its way onto bracelets and wristbands which were sported like fashion statements.
On low end, it is estimated that fifteen million bracelets were sold. Naturally, knowing that Jesus would want all of us to spend our money on trinkets, enterprising individuals also hawked WWJD pens and pencils, and travel mugs. Good time had by all!
So “What Wouldn’t Jesus Do?” Well, for starters, my guess is that he would not stand in judgment of Donald Trump.GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
