Jimmy Kimmel has 'Jesus' read actual quotes from presidential candidates, and it's sacrilegious

"God is a very important part of this primary election," Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live, with "most all of the candidates" going out of their way to "talk about the Bible and their faith." Kimmel said it would be interesting to hear what some actual quotes from these pious candidates sounded like "from the mouth of Jesus," so he had an actor dress up like Jesus and read some choice quotes. The quotes are the ones you'd expect, and it is a pretty effective exercise in juxtaposing Christian teachings and avowed Christian candidates. But what really makes this shine is the attention to detail — watch for the split screen of Jesus and Carly Fiorina, for example. Peter Weber
