Sometimes when a street-corner proselytizer would try converting me, I used to tell them I considered myself a “cristian-with-a-small-C” because I follow the teachings of Jesus. The answer was always that a “Christian” is a person who accepts “Jesus as the son of god”. To many “born-again” it seems that doing good works isn’t a requirement for being a “Christian.”
I consider those people to be hypocrites and blasphemers. Your illustration shows this very well.
Jay Powell says
All the border hysteria versus the “Inscription on the Statue of Liberty”:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

Why is being a Christian considered good? What about Jews, Muslims, Buddhist, etc?
The title reflects the racism and bias that permeates society.
Dana Levy says
I perceive that the illustration is getting to the greatest core problem of the Republican party. Even though it may have others from other “faiths” (or lack thereof), the majority and sentiment demonstrated is “Christian” in mood and deed and is being called out for their hypocrisy. Apparently, do as I say and not do, is the catch phrase of the R party. Spot on in my realm!
spot on. Too bad these cartoons (I imagine) come so easily.
