    Jesus took a whip to the thieves and the covetous in his day. If he were to come back and do the same thing today, he just might start in Zuccotti Park.

    In other words, he might occupy Wall Street after all

    No one is more hypocritical than a conservative christian.

    Just wow. I’m not sure which Bible this fellow is reading, but here’s a piece that speaks from the perspective of the Bible that I read from: “10 Things Christians should know and do about the Occup Protests” – http://www.patheos.com/community/mainlineportal/2011/10/14/10-things-christians-should-know-do-about-the-“occupy”-protests/

    I recall that Jesus wrath was directed at the money changers in the temple. They were practitioners of usury, predatory lenders who charged exorbitant fees for their services. Sounds like Jesus would have target the same Wall St pigs that the OWS movement is protesting. Jesus would have joined OWS.

    Where is the quote from Fischer that “Jesus would take a whip”? I don’t see it in this article.

    Oooh what fun. We can be as evil, racist, bigoted and mean spirited as we like, we can worship mammon, accrue lots of worldly treasures and as long as we wear a badge that says “I’m a Christian” we can get a tax break as well. Can anybody join in?

      Hey Bryan Fischer Of American Family Association. Dig this…

      “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.” Luke 10:27

    Jesus also spoke about seperating church and state. Taxation wasn’t exactly unknown in Biblical times; if Jesus had meant taxes, he would have said taxes. I find it ironic that the believers so adamant that the Bible should be taken literally when it relates to Adam & Eve are the very first to look for “what it really means” in the numerous times Jesus spoke of compassion for the poor.

    Jesus would have dropkicked this guy.

      Ebon, I think the love of money does a lot to warp people’s perspective so they try to what is said into a little box. Deep in our hearts we all know what is right. If we listen.

        Most people tend to know what is right from wrong. However, it is also dependent on perspective. The wealthy do not share the perspective, by and large, of the poor and middle class, so what is right to them varies widely from what is right to us. And then there is knowing, as different from caring. People in support of a certain agenda think that it takes precedence, or is a greater good. Casualties in that type of war are acceptable to them.
