The video uses Tea Party quotes, signs, and policy positions to rewrite Jesus' famous sermon, and lets Christians decide for themselves if the language and policies of their political leaders sound right coming from the mouth of their Lord and Savior.
Complete with appearances by Tea Party Jesus' politicial Disciples and the Mitt the Apostate--who is cast out by Jesus at the begining of the movie but keeps trying to get back in and win acceptance--the movie has many a comic nod to the political insider. It concludes with "real Jesus" sharing quotes from what he actually believed and stood for, which draw the contrasts all the more clearly.

Rather than presenting arguments for why Tea Party teachings are counter to Christ's, the video uses Tea Party quotes, signs, and policy positions to rewrite Jesus' famous Sermon, and lets Christians decide for themselves if the language and policies of their political leaders sound right coming from the mouth of their Lord and Savior.
The campaign began yesterday with AVN unveiling its teapartyjesus.org website, and the first few trailers for the video. Along with a short description of Tea Party Jesus, the website features a tongue-in-cheek description of his "disciples" who all appear in the video, and are featured in their own "Disciples" trailer including:
• Ayn the Atheist,
• Glenn the Martyr,
• Michele the Zealot,
• Newt the Bombast,
• Paul the Tax-Despiser,
• Rick the Evangelist,
• Rick the Lesser,
• Rush the Instigator,
• Sarah the Rogue,
• with an special appearance by would-be-disciple Mitt the Apostate.
Check it out, and then spread the word! #teapartyjesus
