Ann Coulter: Jesus was a godless liberal

On MSNBC's Hardball, Ann Coulter said:
...generally the liberal idea is to be nice to your enemies, punish your friends. No, I think you should punish your enemies and be nice to your friends.

Well, I'm not sure if this is a liberal idea or not, but, if you believe the gospels anyway, it was definitely one of Jesus'.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you. -- Matthew 5:44

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. -- Luke 6:27

But love ye your enemies, and do good. -- Luke 6:35

Maybe Jesus founded not only the Catholic Church, but the godless Church of Liberalism as well.

It seems clear that Coulter is against "Godlessness", but "not particularly interested in the details".

She couldn't find anyplace where Jesus said hate your friends. She didn't have to: If you don't love your friends, what makes them your friends? Loving friends is easy. You have to work at loving your enemies. The recurring message in the verses she quoted is "do good", despite what others do to you. So her argument, as presented in this blog, makes no sense at all. I didn't see the show, only what you took from it, and if that's the best she came up with, it's not worth hearing the rest.

Yeah. About that. Coulter and Jesus. Not much in common.
