The Democrat recently trotted out the comment that "Jesus was a Community organizer and Pontius Pilot was a Governor". This was done to contrast Obama with Palin. Here is the problem with the analogy. Jesus, unlike Obama, was not paid by the government to organize a future Christian community. Jesus was view with suspicion and eventually executed as a threat to the state. Pontius Pilot was not a governor but a prefect, an appointed guardian of Roman interests. Pontius Pilot was not elected by the people he ruled - quite the opposite.
