With less than a month to go before the Brits cast their votes in the 2015 General Election, its time to reflect back on the past to a moment involving one of the most talked about parties in the race.

This Thursday we are throwing it back to honour Nigel Farage, the UK Independence Party leader, and his divine encounter with the Son of God.

In mid-December 2014, former UKIP spokesman Winston McKenzie compared Farage to Jesus in an interview with Chat Politics. McKenzie explained, “Jesus was one man, we’re his army. Farage is one man, and we’re his army and that’s what it’s all about.”

Not long after, the UKIP leader was pictured walking through London whilst being followed by a man resembling Jesus Christ. The Jesus impersonator, a Los Angeles native by the name of Kevin Lee Light, prefers to go by the alias ‘Jesus of Hollywood’.

(Note: Jesus’s impeccable taste for shoes that are as fashionable as they are comfortable.)

UKIP has been known to defend their comments and political positions in the name of Christianity, and have often received backlash from the Christian community.

This stunt came just after Farage defended the UKIP candidate Kerry Smith, who made racist and homophobic comments on a live radio show.
