West Plains newspaper ads — How would Jesus vote?

As Election Day draws near, there’s a debate in West Plains over the voting record of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Oddly enough, it’s taking place in advertising space in the West Plains Daily Quill.

HWJV.

How Would Jesus Vote.

Just so you know, I tried to reach the paper’s publisher, Jim Phillips, who is listed on the website as publisher and editor.

I called him, left a message and when I did not hear back I emailed him before noon, as well as the general manager/managing editor; the news editor; and the person listed as the advertising contact. No one responded by deadline Friday.

Here’s what the ads say

The first ad in the paper said the following:

Can you be a Democrat and a Christian?

NO.

Would Jesus vote for Pro-Choice and Same Sex Marriage?

NO.

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE.

Paid Advertisement

That’s all it says: Paid Advertisement. It does not say who paid for it.

Then, a rebuttal ad ran in the paper. It said:

Jesus was a Jewish, Middle-Eastern day-laborer whose family fled from Bethlehem to escape King Herod. Jesus, Mary and Joseph were refugees. More than 500 children are in the country alone because their parents were deported. Jesus could have been one of them.

Election day is November 3rd

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

Paid for by: Ruth Bader Ginsgurls, 426 W. Fir Rd. #1010. Carthage, MO  64836

This is the ad that ran later, in rebuttal to the first ad. It also was published earlier this month in the West Plains Daily Quill.

I can find nothing on a group, political or otherwise, called “Ruth Bader Ginsgurls.” 

I googled it; I checked online Missouri Secretary of State records; and I checked online Missouri Ethics Commission records.

The address is a P.O. Box. 

As far as I know, there is no biblical record of Jesus voting, either pre-resurrection or post-resurrection.

Not even in Chicago, which once had a history in the era of Richard J. Daley of voters who were resurrected on Election Day, voted, and then went back to being dead.

For what it’s worth, almost all of them were Democrats.

I find it interesting that this hot-button debate — the merging of politics and religion into wedge issues — is being played out through paid advertisements that, essentially, are anonymous.
