A Few Ways In Which Bernie Sanders Is More Like Jesus Than The Supposedly Christian Donald Trump

If you listen to Donald Trump (and I realize we all try not to anymore than we have to), you’d think he must have considered being a minister instead of a predatory real estate man. Trump just loves to talk about what good Christian he is, and how his favorite book of all time is the Bible. But as the old saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.”

Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, is Jewish, much the same as Jesus Christ was. And yet, if you read or listen to the Senator from Vermont, he sounds a lot more like Jesus than Trump could ever hope. Here’s a few glaring examples:

Subject: Greed

Jesus:

“Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven.  Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.'” (Matthew 19:23)

Bernie:

“This recession… was caused by the greed, the recklessness and illegal behavior of the people on Wall Street…It is not a radical idea to say that if somebody works 40 hours a week, that person should not be living in poverty.”

Sir Donald of Trumpville:

“I like money. I’m very greedy. I’m a greedy person. I shouldn’t tell you that, I’m a greedy – I’ve always been greedy. I love money, right?”

Hey, check it out! Did you just see that camel pass through the eye of that needle?! That was awesome!

Subject: Peace

Jesus:

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Bernie:

“How does it happen that we have a trillion dollars available to expand our nuclear arsenal, but we don’t have the money to take care of the children in this country?”

Man with dead animal atop head:

“(I’ll) quickly cut the head off ISIS and take their oil.”

I don’t recall Jesus ever saying to cut off anyone’s head.

Subject: Killing

Jesus:

“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’”

Bernie:

“I am against capital punishment in general.”

Trump the Mean-Spirited Moron:

“One of the first things I’d do in terms of executive order if I win would be to sign a strong, strong statement that will go out to the country, out to the world, that anybody caught killing a policeman, policewoman, police officer, anybody killing a police officer: death penalty. It’s gonna happen. OK? We can’t let this go.”

How obvious is the contrast here. Also, nice double standard by saying that cop lives are more valuable than those of others, which is total bullshit.

Subject: Justice and Equality

Jesus:

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

Bernie:

“We must pursue policies to transform this country into a nation that affirms the value of its people of color. That starts with addressing the five central types of violence waged against black, brown and indigenous Americans: physical, political, legal, economic and environmental.”

Douchebag Donald:

“The Mexican government is sending rapists, drug dealers, and criminals across the border…The fact is, since then, many killings, murders, crimes, money going out, drugs coming in — and I said, ‘We need to build a wall.’ And it has to be built quickly. I don’t mind having a big beautiful door in that wall so that people can come in legally, but we need Jeb to build a wall to keep illegals out.”

Anyone have any questions? Hey, Donald, why are you trying to sneak out of the room right when the discussion is starting?
