Edwards “Heart” Jeebus

Put your hands on the radio, friends, because the Panderin’ Prince in the Pompadour is back and feedin’ that fiery furnace of pharisean phfun!

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school.
Edwards, in an interview with the Web site Beliefnet.com, said Jesus would be most upset with the selfishness of Americans and the country’s willingness to go to war “when it’s not necessary.”
“I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs,” Edwards told the site. “I think he would be appalled, actually.”
Edwards also said he was against teacher-led prayers in public schools, but he added that “allowing time for children to pray for themselves, to themselves, I think is not only OK, I think it’s a good thing.”

Edwards then left in his new official campaign vehicle…

I’m sure this will go over great with his ex-blogging staff…

    I don’t care WHAT he says…I’m still gonna hear his former blogmistress’ words in my mind. (And I don’t care that she was a different person, that he probably hired her without knowing her beliefs, yadda yadda. I’m STILL offended over what she said about Mary. And there’s not a lot he can do to fix that.)
    Besides…whenever a politician mentions “plight of the suffering” and “children” together in a paragraph, I tend to clutch my wallet just a bit tighter.
