Lima News columnist Tom Lucente’s efforts to persuade us that Jesus’ politics were libertarian are futile, as futile as attempts to convince us that god is a Democrat.


Garry Wills makes the point in his plain-talking book, “What Jesus Meant.” “Jesus specifically renounced opposition to the Roman oppression, saying “Caesar’s matters leave to Caesar.” Nor did Jesus oppose paying the Roman tax because, writes Wills, “Jesus did not come to bring any form of politics.”


Politics is for the good — however we define it — of the world. Jesus taught us to be prepared for heaven’s reign.


— David S. Adams, Lima
