Default Ahmadinejad: Jesus would stand with oppressed

Quote:
LONDON, England (CNN) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's upcoming Christmas message will say Jesus would be a defender of the oppressed if he were alive today.

"Jesus the Son of Mary is the standard-bearer of justice, of love for our fellow human beings, of the fight against tyranny, discrimination and injustice," Ahmadinejad will say, according to a preliminary text of remarks he is planning to deliver in a message to be broadcast Thursday -- Christmas Day -- on British TV.

The fiery Iranian leader, who has angered Western countries with his sharp comments on Israel, nuclear power, and the role of the United States in the world, will be delivering the Alternative Christmas Message on Britain's Channel 4.

The network, which calls the event a "traditional alternative to The Queen's Christmas Day broadcast," issued the preliminary text.

The thrust of his words and the overall message contained religiously inclusive rhetoric, such as his congratulating "the followers of Abrahamic faiths, especially the followers of Jesus Christ, and the people of Britain." And his words conjured a hopeful future.

But some of his remarks reflected Ahmadinejad's trademark bluntness.

"If Christ was on earth today undoubtedly he would stand with the people in opposition to bullying, ill-tempered and expansionist powers," the text says.

"If Christ was on earth today undoubtedly he would hoist the banner of justice and love for humanity to oppose warmongers, occupiers, terrorists and bullies the world over.

"If Christ was on earth today undoubtedly he would fight against the tyrannical policies of prevailing global economic and political systems, as he did in his lifetime."

The alternative address tradition, which began in 1993, has included remarks from the Rev. Jesse Jackson, an injured Afghan war veteran, a survivor of the attacks of September 11, 2001, and Marge from the television show "The Simpsons."

The network notes that "relations between Iran and the West" will play "a central role in world affairs" in the coming year. The address -- which won't be broadcast opposite the queen's message -- will be preceded by a "short introduction" that will put the leader's "appearance in context."

"As the leader of one of the most powerful states in the Middle East, President Ahmadinejad's views are enormously influential. As we approach a critical time in international relations, we are offering our viewers an insight into an alternative world view," said Dorothy Byrne, head of news and current affairs.

"Channel 4 has devoted more airtime to examining Iran than any other broadcaster and this message continues a long tradition of offering a different perspective on the world around us."

So Jesus would be with the Iranians ...? This man is 1 heck of a entertaining fool.

When Jesu returns, He'll be bringing the vengeance of heaven on those who oppress and terrorize...like Mahmoud Iloveademonicjihad. :headbang:

Last I checked this supposed Jesus was a man of peace and brotherhood.

A man like that I do not think would bring "vengeance" on anyone. Accept those who may take and bend his teachings.

Not sure which Bible version you're digging that up from, Davey.

When Jesus returns, He brings with Him all the armies of heaven to wipe all His foes off the face of the earth (see Revelation, especially chapter 19).

Jesus isn't some peace-loving hippie...He's the one Who "treads the winepress of the wrath of Almighty God." :rock:

Dino, that was great. I'm an Athiest, but even I know that about the man called Jesus.

So many people who fly his banner just paint him with red, white and blue and apply a lot of American standards to him.

They are no different than the Muslims most of them are so terrified of.

Another big reason I feel the way I do.

I'm not sure who you're referring to with these "red, white, and blue" comments...perhaps a strawman, back-handed swipe at me. I never said such a thing.

While "God is love," He is also the Judge, Who will judge everyone "according to what he has done." For those who blow Him off, and refuse to allow Him to be Lord of their lives, He has no choice but to allow them to go to hell. Like CS Lewis (former atheist, who wised up and got down to business with Mr. God) said, "There are two sorts of people. One who says to God, 'Thy will be done'; and those to whom He will say, 'THY will be done'." :rock:

God is holy, and cannot tolerate the presence of sin. But He also gives mankind the ability to make free-will choices of where they will spend eternity. He has also provided a way out through the cross. No man who winds up in hell will wonder why he's there.

Sorry if that's too much for those of you who have adopted this religious version of political correctness, but that's the way it is.
