Christmas  is as good a time as any to ask, “What would Jesus do?”

Or better yet, “What would Jesus want you to do?”

Would he want you to support politicians who claim to be people of “faith” as they pass judgment, lie, steal, kill, refuse to forgive and vote to make the rich richer and the poor poorer?

I think not.

“How many observes Christ’s birthday! How few his precepts! O! ’tis easier to keep holidays than commandments.” – Benjamin Franklin

Happy Holidays.
