Who Would Jesus Tow?

The Good Samaritan, Eugene Delacroix, 1849.

From the Washington Post:
Ken Shupe responded to a woman who was stranded on an interstate in North Carolina on Monday. Shupe is a tow truck driver; the woman had been involved in a wreck, according to reports.

But when Shupe arrived, he noticed something about the woman's car — specifically, he noticed that the woman was a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, according to Fox Carolina. . .

"When he saw 'a bunch of Bernie Sanders stuff' he said he told the woman, 'very politely,' " that he could not "tow her car because she was 'obviously a socialist' and advised her to 'call the government' for a tow." . . .

"Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and he just said get in the truck and leave," Shupe told an ABC affiliate. "And when I got in my truck, you know, I was so proud, because I felt like I finally drew a line in the sand and stood up for what I believed."

According to Fox Carolina, Shupe identified himself as a conservative Christian who supports Donald Trump.

Amazing how people can twist their "deeply held religious beliefs" to justify such actions and walk away feeling good about themselves. Obviously this guy hadn't gotten the point in his "conservative Christian" upbringing.

Totally missed the point, right.
