Jesus for President

Jesus for President: Politics for Ordinary Radicals is the title of a new book by Shane Claiborne (of The Simple Way) and Chris Haw (of Camden House).

I especially like this button:

Amish for Homeland Security

There are some interesting images and such on the “counter-propaganda” link, especially the very powerful litany by Shane and Chris, with help from Christian Peacemaker Jim Loney and Brian Walsh. Here’s an excerpt:

One: Today we pledge our ultimate allegiance… to the Kingdom of God
All: We pledge allegiance
One: To a peace that is not like Rome’s
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the Gospel of enemy love
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the Kingdom of the poor and broken
All: We pledge allegiance
One: To a King that loves his enemies so much he died for them
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the least of these, with whom Christ dwells
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the transnational Church that transcends the artificial borders of nations
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the refugee of Nazareth
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the homeless rabbi who had no place to lay his head
All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the cross rather than the sword

All: We pledge allegiance

One: To the banner of love above any flag
All: We pledge allegiance
