This level of ignorance of politics, economics, and Christianity must take an awful lot of effort.

Stan Van Gundy, former Head Coach of the Orlando Magic, the Miami Heat, and the Detroit Pistons, was blasted on Twitter for a meme he shared with a real smooth-brain take on the Biden admin’s federal student loan debt forgiveness.

Apparently, it was meant to mock the Christian conservatives who are opposed to the government using taxpayer money to pay off the debt of college students and grads who took out loans that they couldn’t repay.

The Biden plan would forgive $10,000 of federal student loans from borrowers who made less than $125,000 in annual income, and up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients and extend the moratorium on federal student loan payments to December 31.

Van Gundy posted a meme about Jesus feeding the five thousand that read, “Jesus’s miracle of the loaves and the fishes was a slap in the face to all the people who brought their own lunch” and captioned it, “Republican logic.”

Screenshot for posterity:

I guess he didn’t read that verse where Jesus told the Pharisees to render to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.

Van Gundy was blasted by right-wingers in replies and quote tweets for his very special kind of stupid.

But Van Gundy wasn’t the only one comparing Biden to Jesus.

In a tweet that is just incomprehensibly stupid, social justice lefty activist who calls himself a Christian, Shane Claiborne, compared paying off student loans to… *checks notes*… salvation itself.

These people are just exhausting!

No, the socialist vote-buying scheme by the Shambling Husk of Mediocrity that is occasionally brought onto a sound stage replica of the Oval Office is not comparable to a miracle performed by Jesus.

Nor should it be compared in any way, shape, or form to the substitutionary atonement of Christ for the remission of sin. That’s just insane.

But this is what you get when people have a skewed version of the Bible and Jesus.

All these stupid comments do is expose their ignorance of Christianity.

Don’t be that guy.

If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
