Jesus Gets the Last Word on Rick Perry's Ad

This week, Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, a GOP presidential hopeful, caused a kerfuffle when he aired a new campaign ad in which he said:

"I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian. But you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school. As president, I'll end Obama's war on religion. And I'll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage. Faith made America strong. It can make her strong again."

Now, thanks to the cheeky monkeys over at, Jesus responds:


"Jesus Christ of Nazareth would like to take this opportunity to refute Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry's most recent TV ad." for the win!
