That's because there weren't many yuppie Republicans around 2000 years ago.
 Sure Jesus hung out with the scum of his time.  He also hung out with the
Pharisees and Sauducees.

Please be specific with a case where Christianity is a "weapon of money
grubbing conservatives".  I'm sure there are some, but true Christianity
teaches hope and peace through Jesus.  Jesus a revolutionary?  NO.  That's
what the Jews were expecting in their Messiah.  Jesus came to show man
their sin and to die for that sin.  In this season of Easter, His
ressurection is what people should be looking at, not trying to use Him for
"money grubbing conservatism" or as a "revolutionary".
