GOP candidate Herman Cain called Jesus "the perfect conservative" in an essay penned last year for the website Red State, adding that the Messiah helped others without government assistance and gave hope and compassion to all he met.

Not surprisingly in a hotly contested race, critics have been taking a closer look at Cain's writings as he vaults to the top of the Republican list vying for the GOP nomination. Cain is an associate minister in an Atlanta megachurch widely known for its liberal-leaning activism and led by a pastor who cites Malcolm X as one of his influences.

Cain is a longtime member of Antioch Baptist Church North, a church that has some 14,000 members and an operating budget of more than $5 million, CNN reports. It has hosted civil rights activists as guest speakers, including Jesse Jackson and Andrew Young.

In his essay, Cain writes of Jesus:

"He helped the poor without one government program. He healed the sick without a government health care system. He feed the hungry without food stamps. And everywhere He went, it turned into a rally, attracting large crowds, and giving them hope, encouragement and inspiration.

"For three years He was unemployed, and never collected an unemployment check. Nevertheless, he completed all the work He needed to get done. He didn’t travel by private jet. He walked and sailed, and sometimes traveled on a donkey.

"But they made Him walk when He was arrested and taken to jail, and no, He was not read any Miranda Rights. He was arrested for just being who He was and doing nothing wrong. And when they tried Him in court, He never said a mumbling word.

"He didn’t have a lawyer, nor did He care about who judged Him.
His judge was a higher power.

"The liberal court found Him guilty of false offences and sentenced Him to death, all because He changed the hearts and minds of men with an army of 12.

His death reset the clock of time.

Never before and not since has there ever been such a perfect conservative."
