WWJT of Pastor Corey Brooks?

Several months ago, Corey Brooks, pastor of the New Beginnings mega-church, baffled Southsiders by lending his support to billionaire Bruce Rauner's purchase of the position of Governor of Illinois.  Perhaps Mr. Brooks was seduced by a glass of merlot from Rauner's exclusive wine club?  Unlike Jesus Christ, though, who turned water into wine at no cost, Bruce Rauner pays $100,000 per year for his wine, an expense that's twice the average Chicago household income.

We've also noticed that Pastor Corey Brooks has taken a $pot on the Board of Directors at One Chance Illinois, aligning himself with Myles Mendoza's anti-union plutocrats, socialites and ed reform profiteers.  More recently, Bruce Rauner has named Mr. Brooks to $erve on the Illinois Tollway Board.  Cha-ching!

This makes us wonder:  What Would Jesus Think?
  • According to Mark, Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."
  • And according to Matthew, Jesus said, "You cannot serve both God and money."
