Jesus Christ. Seriously, that's who Steve King is comparing himself to.

Steve King says he understands how Jesus Christ felt after months of criticism in the House

U.S. Rep. Steve King said that after facing months of criticism for comments in the New York Times about white supremacy and nationalism, he better understands the persecution Jesus Christ felt.

The 4th District representative made the comments in response to a question from the Rev. Pinky Person of the Faith In Christ Fellowship, who told King during a town hall Tuesday in Cherokee that she was concerned that "Christianity is really being persecuted."

“When I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers — you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion — and I have better insight into what He went through for us, partly because of that experience," King told about 30 attendees the town hall at Western Iowa Tech Community College.

I just do not have words for this.

1. I don't think you do Steve. You stopped short of the..

Crown of thorns.
Three spikes.
And dying of asphyxiation on the cross. Or so the story goes.
And don't forget the long walk w a load of wood. I'm pretty sure Steve hasn't broken a sweat in decades.
And as a Christian, it's sacrilegious to compare yourself to him. Then again, rules don't apply to the gop....until they do. And, they will.

4. Does he know Jesus was a middle-eastern Jew?

I don't think that registers with his base (who are worse than he)

5. Then they wonder why young people are abandoning religion en masse.

Steve King and his ilk are modern-day pharisees.

6. So King is admitting that his suffering is fictional.

8. "Father forgive them; they know not what they do"

Of course, it was those dirty, stinking liberals who cropped the rest of Jesus' quote during his crucifixion: "But those fuckers who took away my committee assignments? Smite them! Smite them hard, Dad!"
