Since the late 1970s, a certain political party in America has attempted to monopolize the rhetoric of Christianity to suit its own agenda. It has injected its self-professed piety into every election, every national issue, to such an extent that it feels more like we’re voting for state and national bishops more than legislators.

Yet, the rubric is quite clear: the key to entering paradise lies not in a free market, nor does it reside in lower taxes. The key to our salvation is how we treat the poorest, the weakest and the most despised among us. The words in red really and truly do seem like red words from the perspective of that self-professed “more-Christian” party.

Protecting the Second Amendment does not serve the Prince of Peace. People, not corporations, will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. There will be no separate paradise for rich and poor. The gold of heaven will be halos, not arches.

The choice for 2014 is clear: Alabamians can either swallow the GOP’s standard “we’re the more Christian party” lie, or they can choose a party that is truly more Christ-like in its rhetoric and vote Democrat.
