John Edwards and Jesus

John Edwards is talking about Jesus, which as any conservative knows, Democrats + Jesus = foot-in-mouth disorder.

The moronic thing that Edwards said:

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.
It's nice to have some Freudian proof of John Edwards' lack of belief in Jesus. And where is that proof you ask? In his wording: "Jesus would be ..." Anyone who actually believes in the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ would have said, "Jesus is no doubt appalled ..."

Just another example of some secular humanist Democrat invoking Jesus in the Bible Belt because they think that the people there are so dumb they'll think, "Hey, I like Jesus too. I should vote for this guy."

Bryan over at Hot Air says about this quote:
Keep in mind that among the rationales for the Iraq war is that it would alleviate the Iraqi people’s suffering under Saddam. Keep in mind that Edwards chides America for ignoring the suffering of others. Keep in mind that Americans are consistently the most charitable people on the planet. And keep in mind that Edwards thinks the Iraq war, for which he voted, was unnecessary. America ignores suffering even though it leads the world in charity, but goes to war unnecessarily to alleviate suffering, and that’s also bad. Keep all that in mind. Congratulations! You have cognitive dissonance just like John Edwards!
I think Democrats should just follow their guts and avoid Jesus.
