  from Americablog Jesus as you’ve always known him, now with more capitalism. I thought this video was fun, and totally timely.
The creator is Mark Fiore, who writes:
Amidst the imagined attacks on Christmas, Rush Limbaugh and some Fox News characters accused Pope Francis of being Marxist after he said some critical words about our economic system. Never mind that Pope Benedict had similar complaints. Everything has been coming up Pope Francis lately, who was picked as Time’s “Person of the Year” and was featured on the cover of the New Yorker. Having been raised Catholic and having done plenty of cartoons about the scandals in the Catholic Church, I’m happy that we’re talking again about things like helping the poor, imagine that.

Jesus speaks — just press his Sacred Heart:
“Go, sell your possessions, and use the money to . . . start a growing, profitable business! Come, follow me.”
“The love of money is at the root of all . . . successful entrepreneurs!”
“If they’re hungry, sell them something to eat.”
And my personal favorite:
“Verily, the first shall be first and the last, last. Why do you think they’re called first and last?”
More where that came from. The film is a nice take on the war on Christmas. Happy Season, all. May yours be merry and bright.
