Mixing Religion And Politics Is Like Mixing Ice Cream With Manure….

“Mixing religion and politics is like mixing ice cream and manure. It doesn’t do much to the manure but it sure does ruin the ice cream”, my friend Tony Campolo likes to say.

No one would vote for Jesus.

  • Seriously. Firstly He’s one of those boat people. Well, at least one of those “donkey people”.
  • According to the second chapter of Matthew’s Gospel his family were refugees who in the middle of the night had to flee and seek asylum.
  • He’s also a Middle Eastern man. Oh, and he’s not Christian. (Yep, he’s Jewish) He was involved in repeated seditious civil-disobedience and the religious right of his day repeatedly accused him of partying too hard and with all the wrong people.
  • Politicians and religious leaders today still find it convenient to scapegoat, alienate and demonise all the people Jesus loved hanging out with.
