I'd figure i start a thread fun in nature as to what Jesus would do, how'd he be treated by the establishment among other things here in America...

Some examples to get started...

Here goes...

He would get cited continously for solicitation and not having a permit for his gatherings in public places.

The religous establishment would demand him to start off his sermons with the phrase "This is for entertainment purposes only".

Big churches would quickly go out of business.

He'd be a terrorist and/or illegal alien facing deportation back to his country.

GWB would conclude Jesus's own "AXIS OF EVIL" entity for the gov't watch-list.

A few for now...

Love to hear your thoughts....

The ACLU would drop their opposition to capital punishment long enough to have Him crucified.

So history would repeat itself.

Since Jesus was a middle-eastern carpenter, he would drive a cab in Manhattan. That's what Jesus would do...

Right...because nobody else would ever think to get an injunction against nailing some guy to a bunch of landscaping timbers as a form of cruel and unusual punishment. Most other people just view that sort of thing as commonplace, I guess...

EPA would object to the use of timbers, the rest wouldn't trouble them (not their organizational responsibility).

I think he would be amazed at what most churches have done to his straightforward teachings regarding love, justice and avarice.

As would PETA, if they were infested with termites.

You mean they would let him have lethal injection.

Instead of people wearing crosses, they'd all wear golden needles instead.

I think the minute he starts big gathering and starts telling everyone he's son of god, he'd be taken away to the nearest mental facility.
