Jesus was not on your side.

King, whose tales have become box-office smashes including “The Shawshank Redemption,” The Dead Zone,” “It,” and “Stand By Me,” is getting plenty of reaction.
RedState blogger Susie Moore said: “I know – beyond all doubt – that Jesus is on my side. And it’s not because of my conservatism or how I vote, nor is it in spite of it. It isn’t because of anything I say or do – or can ever say or do. It’s because of Him. It’s because He is my Lord and Savior. It’s because He came for me, to save me – but not just me. Each and every one of us – including Stephen King.”
There was mixed reaction on Twitter, including:
- “What a nasty thing to say. Jesus willingly died for sinful mankind to buy back what Adam lost. I’d say he is definitely on our side. But only if we have appreciation for the greatest act of love ever shown.”
- “Jesus is always on your side.
