Jonathan Moseley: "Jesus was a capitalist"

Rush Limbaugh isn't the only one throwing a tantrum over the fact that Pope Francis dared to remind everyone that they can't worship money and still call themselves Christians. Limbaugh is joined by the denizens of the insane asylum that is WorldNetDaily.

Jonathan Moseley of the Northern Virginia Tea Party, in fact, actually out-crazied Rush Limbaugh by not only likewise condemning Pope Francis' "socialist philosophy," but by claiming that Jesus Christ himself is a capitalist.

"One truth shines out from the Bible: Jesus spoke to the individual, never to government or government policy," Moseley claims. "Jesus was a capitalist, preaching personal responsibility, not a socialist."

The idea that Jesus, a man who not only routinely preached about helping the sick and the poor, but whom the Bible itself quotes as saying that a camel would have a better chance of squeezing through the eye of a needle than a rich man getting into Heaven (Matthew 19:42), was the likely inspiration for Ayn Rand and all other adherents to the "I've got mine so screw you" mantra, that would be laughable if there were not so many self-proclaimed Christians in America who have likewise willed themselves to believe it.
