Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei marked Christmas Day with social media messages tying Jesus into political rhetoric directed at the United States.

“If Christ were among us today, he would not spare even a single moment to fight the leaders of despotism and global arrogance,” he said on Facebook, using the Islamic Republic’s favored term for America.

“Nor would he tolerate hunger and wandering of millions of people, degenerated by the hegemonic and colonialist powers into war, corruption, and violence,” he added.

On Twitter, Khamenei tweeted another message containing a veiled dig at the U.S.: “Jesus Christ was a minister of a heavenly justice to call all oppressed on earth for emancipation from the thralldom of bullying despots.”

Hey, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, DO NOT EVEN equate the UNITED STATES “government” with the United States of America!

AND you’re one to talk… you and your kind imprisoned Pastor Saeed for BUILDING ORPHANAGE(S) IN IRAN -- you torture him for believing TRUTH. How, then are WE to see YOU?
