A while back, lots of folks were speculating about what would Jesus do, buy, drive, think etc. It seems no one asked what would Jesus be. Here are some clues; they can be found in “Wealth” under “The Teachings of Jesus” in http://www.gospel-mysteries.net/teachings-jesus.html

In Mark 10:25, Jesus says, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God." Mark 10:17-22 indicates that the only way a rich person can go to heaven is, in Jesus's words, to "sell everything you have and give to the poor."

Jesus also warned against the accumulation of wealth. In Matthew 6:19, he says, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on Earth." In Matthew 6:24, he says, "You cannot serve both God and money." In Luke 6:24, he says, "Woe to you who are rich." Jesus disapproved of wealth because he thought it was wrong for some people to live in wasteful luxury while others starved. 

According to the Book of Acts, his original followers tried to live by these teachings after he left them. They formed a community in Jerusalem known as the Nazarenes in which everyone "had everything in common" (Acts 2:44), and any new member had to sell his or her possessions and give the proceeds to a common fund.

So Jesus would be a Socialist.

Also he never said anything about homosexuality.

Clearly, no one who thinks or speaks like Jesus did would want to join or could possibly be accepted in today’s Republican Party.
