"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." "BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS: for they shall be called the children of God."

We make human color and gender the color and gender of God; and we fail to see God in the one who comes in different shades and other forms than ours, though all of our scriptures are clear about equality and all those theologies are sound...We're all simply in it together, swimming together in the energy that is God. All of us." -Sister Joan D. Chittister, Benedictine nun

JESUS WAS NOT THE PRINCE OF WAR. HE WAS NOT AGAINST CHARITY. HE WAS IN FAVOR OF WELFARE FOR THE NEEDY AND UNDERSERVED. HE WAS THE OPPOSITE OF GREEDY AND SELFISH. JESUS OF NAZARETH WAS INDEED THE PRINCE OF PEACE. TODAY'S RIGHT-WINGERS WOULD CALL JESUS A SOCIALIST. SIMPLY READ WHAT JESUS SAID AND PREACHED AS REPORTED IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT IN THE BIBLE. READ THE BOOK OF MATTHEW.
KNOW THE TRUTH ABOUT JESUS AND THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE.
