This latest assault by IQ-challenged Christian greenies -- the "What Would Jesus Drive?" ad campaign run by the Evangelical Environmental Network -- is easily answered, in fact. He would WALK. He once walked 75 miles from Nazareth to Jerusalem just to attend the feast. He could have hitched a ride. They had donkeys and other people-bearing animals. HE DIDN'T. I only remember two times when Jesus wasn't walking. He had to get on that ship so he could walk on water, and he had to enter Jerusalem on an ass so that he could fulfill a prophecy. If you'll recall, he didn't use the ass because he was in a hurry. There wasn't anything to look forward to on that trip.
And the punch line:
In other words, he wasn't a political sort of guy. He was the Son of God. If you really wanna ask what he would do, I hope you're prepared to go the whole nine yards. After all, the most important thing he did ... was die.
Leaving aside his dig at pro-lifers, this piece is simply classic. Go read the whole thing.
