politics via scripture

Have you ever wondered "How would Jesus vote?"

Those on the left assume Jesus would be for them because of issues of poverty, war and healthcare. Those on the right assume Jesus would be for them because of issues of abortion, gay marriage, and general morality. Independents in the center assume Jesus wouldn't vote by party but by issue and would be somewhat critical of the right and left.

Some Christians agree that Jesus would be a prophetic voice to government but would not pick sides. Others believe Jesus would be extremely political with his calls for justice, purity, repentance and mercy.

But if you look through scripture, will you get any help as to what Jesus would be voting for or against? I finally found the conclusive passage of scripture that ends all confusion on the political opinions of God Himself. Here it is:

Ecclesiastes 10:2
The heart of the wise inclines to the right,
but the heart of the fool to the left.

Since most people don't often read Ecclesiastes and probably passover this passage without a second thought, I wanted to bring it to light. So if you are confused about voting, let this be your guiding scripture passage. The wise are inclined to the "right" but only fools vote to the "left."

I hope everyone knows that this post is just a joke.

Not only am I screwing with that passage of scripture and its real meaning, but the original question about how Jesus would vote is itself moot.

To further clarify, I believe Jesus transcends our meager political parties.
