If Jesus came back today, He would weep over the 655,000 dead civilians, then move to Iraq and join the freedom fighters our government calls terrorists.

If Jesus came back today, He would bless all the soldiers on either side of the Iraq war, take away their terrible memories and even more terrible instincts, and rain holy fire on the Pentagon and the White House.

If Jesus came back today, He would join the people who are protesting the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war.

If Jesus came back today, teenage boys would beat Him to death, He would be buried in an unmarked grave, and Pat Robertson would call on God to forgive the “misguided children”.

If Jesus came back today, someone would try to sell Him shares in a failing hedge fund based on subprime mortgages.

If Jesus came back today, He would wonder why we feed ground-up, diseased cows to pigs and then act surprised when we get incurable prion diseases.

If Jesus came back today, He would support the Tibetan monks, and boycott Coca-Cola for not withdrawing its sponsorship of an Olympic torch run through Tibet. He would also likely be one of the 103 killed during that protest.

If Jesus came back today, He would take one look at the medical establishment's record and opt to visit a native healer instead.

If Jesus came back today, He would send all the fossil fuels to outer space and force us to find a better way.
