Judas Would Be a Democrat

• by Edward Hend

Coming up on Holy Week as we are, it might not be very Christian to compare President Biden to Judas Iscariot. But it certainly is worth noting that if Judas were alive today, he most definitely would be a Democrat.

And he would thrive under Mr. Biden's Democrat Party.

This week's gospel is from the book of St. John, in which Jesus dines at the home of Lazarus, whom he has just raised from the dead. Imagine that dinner conversation.

During dinner, Mary Magdalene takes a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard — which, apparently, is extremely expensive — and anoints Jesus' feet. She then wipes his feet with her hair. 

This enrages Judas with greed and fury.

"Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and the money given to the poor?" Judas demanded, sounding alarmingly like noted modern Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Maxine Waters.

John explains: "He said this not because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; he kept the common purse and used to steal what was put into it."

Right there, ladies and gentlemen, you have the entire governing philosophy of the modern Democrat Party in America today.
