A Gentle Reminder That Jesus Was A Brown Middle Eastern Refugee Who Would Not Have Voted For Trump

You seem like an intelligent lady, so maybe you can help me. I am por, ignorant mixed heritage Creek Injun boy down chere in Dixie and I have been kornfuzed for a long time . . . actually since 1980. The Southern Baptists and Fundamentalists down chere took great pride and all the credit for the victory of Ronald Reagan over that heathen, born again Sunday School teacher, Jimmy Carter. Reagan had not darkened the doors of a cherch in 40 years when he was elected and he only attended two church services (funerals) during the eight years, he wuz president. The conservative cherch folks still think that Ronnie wus the next thang to Jaysus. Ever since then whenever the Repiglicans preach the sanctity of greed, self-centeredness, capitalism and feudalism, they say that they were faithful to the teachings of Jaysus. Now, I’z looked and looked in a whole bunch of Bibles and I jest can’t find Jaysus saying anything like that. Do you know which Bible the Repiglicans are a-using as the official word of God?
