Empty the Clip
Tea Party Jesus is keeping politician comments in perspective. Alabama Senator Scott Beason recently said this about the topic of illegal immigration:
Really? Empty the clip? A gun reference that suggests firing all ammunition at immigrants until the weapon is empty? How can this person be serious? Such bigoted comments should be exposed, and voters in Alabama should vote for "the other guy" in the next election.
If you're not familiar with the work over at TPJ, the author takes quotes from religious conservatives (usually Christian) and puts them in the mouth of Jesus - because conservatives think they're following Jesus' way of life, TPJ switches the character speaking the words and let's the reader decide if it's something Jesus would do. It doesn't take twelve years of Sunday school to know that Jesus would never say "Empty the clip, and do what has to be done."
