BM: In your new book you make a very interesting point about how the Republican right is always trying to post the Ten Commandments in public places, which of course is from the Old Testament, but they never, ever seem to want to post the sayings of Jesus, like the Beautitudes: "Blessed are the meak, blessed are the merciful, blessed are the peacemakers." They're such Christians, but they never want to put up what Jesus said.
KV: Well, I don't think they've ever paid any attention to him, and if he were to show up now with that kind of talk, I think he would probably be given lethal injection rather than crucifixion. No, I don't think they know anything about Jesus.
