Rep. Steve King: Criticism From Congress Gave Me 'Insight' on What Jesus 'Went Through for Us'

Source: DAILYBEAST




8. CARRY YOUR CROSS 3 hours ago


Rep. Steve King (R-IA) likened the criticism he faced from his “accusers” in Washington to what Jesus Christ “went through for us” at a Tuesday town hall, The Sioux City Journal reports. “For all that I've been through—and it seems even strange for me to say it—but I am at a certain peace, and it is because of a lot of prayers for me,” King reportedly said to about 30 people at the meeting in Cherokee. “And, 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.” Earlier this year, King was stripped of all his committee assignments in Congress after his remarks to The New York Times on white supremacy caused an uproar. Over 400 House members also voted to rebuke King's remarks to the newspaper.

King was also asked at the town hall if he'd resign so that his constituents could have a representative with committee assignments in Congress. The congressman rebuffed the request, stating that the Times had “misquoted” his white supremacy remarks. “I cannot let that stand,” he said.

1. I remember well, reading how Pilate had Jesus crucified for his racist tongue

When I think of Jesus' suffering, somehow king is not a person that comes to mind
Though, tbh, I do see king screaming "Kill him!"

2. I'm sure the persecution of Steve King for being a racist d-bag was just exactly like

the trial and execution of Jesus, and Steve King also suffered for our sins.

Is the fact that God hasn't gotten around to smiting Steve King evidence of God's mercy, or of his nonexistence? Because if I were God I'd sure smite his ass. Some kind of plague, maybe, followed by a nice lightning strike.

3. I wake up every day ...

wondering if the day will continue to be as bizarre as the day before. We have a so called president who is becoming more unbalanced every day, ranting and tweeting gibberish. Also, republicans like King comparing himself to what happened to Jesus. With all this going on I wonder if I really woke up or died and went to Hell.

10. Ballad of John and Yoko ...

One o' my all time fave Beatles songs ... and their very last big hit to be released IIRC. Or maybe it was the last hit they recorded ... one or the other

I think it's also 100% Paul and John.

6. Matthew 2:13

Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.”

Steve King:
“They have calves the size of cantaloupes. Send them back.”

Like so very many of his kind: denying the existence of Gravity and Momentum in favor of magic and a quite disturbing fantasy.

I mean physically so he can return in 3 days? Not that I want even him to die before his time.

17. "You have to carry the cross if you want to wear the crown" is a very old saying in the

southern Christian churches, IIRC. Nothing new about this sentiment.

21. Really

What was it that happened to Jesus's mother as a refuge when she was seeking comfort and lodging to birth the Mesiah? Was it a lot like Steve King's acceptance of foreign brown people?
Jewish women with cantaloupe calves carrying anchor babies across borders to take your GUVment assistance. Steve King And tRump, Christ like? That Christ is an asshole.

24. Do you suppose King has any awareness that Jesus wasn't a white guy?

He probably thinks Christ was a twin image of Brad Pitt, like those pictures in the hotel-room bibles indicate.

That's a new Station of the Cross, right after the guy wipes the sweat and blood off His face.

34. This TURD Should NOT Be PAID

This guy may have been elected, but he serves no purpose. Therefore he should NOT be paid for sitting around like a stinking TURD. He should be replaced by someone who is NOT a TURD........This state is really having problems with their GOP people. 2020 can not come fast enough to FLUSH out the biggest YELLOW TURD....
