Jesus Christ was the innocent victim of a violent political situation, said a Union of Welsh Independents official in her Easter message.
“He was the target of hatred, and crucified on the trumped-up charge of being a rebel,” said Dr Fiona Gannon (pictured), who chairs the Union’s Council.
“Two thousand years later innocent people are still being slaughtered for political ends, in Belgium, across the Middle East and in North Africa. Things won’t change until we accept Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness as the only means of bringing lasting peace and harmony,” said Dr Gannon.
“If and when that happens, mankind will go through a resurrection experience and enjoy the kind of life that God, though Jesus Christ, wishes for us all.”
