Facebook Posting Queries: Would You Welcome Jesus Into Your Home? My Response: Maybe.

My response: Depends on which one you're talking about, the one I learned about as a child or the one who, today, lacks compassion, doesn't give a damn about the old and sick and poor, hates women, and won't make a place at his table for the sexual minorities. The first one is welcome any time. The second is a plague.

Not true, in several states you have to show ID if requested by the police. If you follow local news you will often find people sitting in jail because they failed to show ID when asked.  They had not done anything serious but, police wanted to get them off street during protest, demonstration, etc. It's used as a catchall for behavior deemed not appropriate.

I like your answer Loren.

Would I welcome an imaginary being into my home?  Dumb question.

On December 24 you will be visited by three spirits. Expect the first when the clock strikes one.

Humbug!

Of course I would invite him into my house. He hasn't done anything to me personally, it's his fan club I have problems with.

First and foremost, he's still a person, what is wrong with socializing?

Secondly, you cannot align his purported character in the Bible with that of a fundamentalist, so if an opportunity arose to actually meet the guy, heck yeah. Would be nice to figure out what he is really all about.

Thirdly, even if he was a douche bag, I'd still not mind sneaking a hair sample before he left....

(**I never believed the guy existed to begin with. Statement number one is not saying he actually he existed**)
