Litany for American Christianity

And many of his followers said to him,

“Jesus, we do not want to feed those who cannot feed themselves.”

And Jesus said, “Over my dead body.”

And again, they said, “Jesus, we do not want our tax dollars to provide healing to people who cannot pay their own bills.”

And Jesus said, “Over my dead body.”

A third time they said, “Jesus, we will not welcome strangers or treat illegals as neighbors.”

And Jesus said, “Over my dead body.”

And now they shouted, “Jesus, the least of these get what they deserve.  They reap what they sow.”

And Jesus said, “Over my dead body.”

Then they argued, “We should be more loyal to our nation than to your teachings.”

And Jesus whispered, “Over my dead body.”

And the followers said, “So be it!”

And the case was closed.  And the tomb was sealed.
