Jesus Christ was the ultimate authority (God), and could have done anything he wanted or had anything he wanted. Instead, as that authority, he chose to sacrifice himself for others. It was the greatest sacrifice in history.

This is the opposite of the "virtue of selfishness" (Ayn Rand), the ethic capitalism stands upon. Jesus was not a warmongering advocate of greed, capitalism, and irresponsible self-interest.

Honest Christians who consider themselves conservatives need to re-evaluate what it is they advocate politically.
