What Would Jesus Say?

What happens when you place quotes from people like Newt Gingrich, James Dobson and less well-known members of the our nation's, ahem, conservative sector into the virtual mouth of Jesus?

You get a site like Tea Party Jesus. Each image is linked to a site where the quote was recorded. Although, in fairness, from the quotes I checked, the speakers aren't Tea Party "members" as much as they're part of the generally anti-Obama crowd.

Jesus telling children bilingual education is bad because it it teaches living in the ghetto, not prosperity
Newt Gingrich

Jesus tells children that pain is purifying and parents should hurt them until they cry
James Dobson

Jesus wondering aloud when people should go and beat their state legislators to a bloody pulp for being an idiot
Blogger Erick Erickson, the latest addition Fox News's crew of commentators

"Jesus wept."

Didn't Erickson just get a job with CNN?

It seems the "Family Values" crowd don't relate to the "WWJD" crowd.
