Pope Francis And The Non Violent Jesus

Francis has given us another beautiful example of how – at the same time – dumb and ignorant he is.

Whilst talking about Jesus driving the merchants from the Temple, the Evil Clown made the point that Jesus did this in a non-violent manner, because of the guards present.

Lordy, this is so dumb one does not even know where to start.

First: the Gospel is very clear in showing Jesus slowly, deliberately forming a whip. This is clearly not a casual observation. On the contrary, it is there to show that the fury about to be unleashed is deliberate Divine Wrath, not a moment of rage like common people may have.

Second: if Francis had some knowledge of history he would know that those weren’t “sensitive” times, in which it suffices to politely ask to have everyone pack his stand and go away to have them meekly comply with your desire. Nor would even an omnipotent God choose to have the merchants go simply because they were asked: the message here is one of utter outrage, not polite observations.

Third: Catholic tradition has been univocally asserting that Jesus’ action was violent. Countless paintings (Caravaggio made a wonderful rendition of Our Lord’s Divine Fury) have tried to convey exactly that meaning. Once again this idiot, this ignorant boor, is trying to invent a new religion out of his ignorance and political correctness.

Fourth: heavens, Pope Sherlock: we are talking of God here. Do you think God forms a whip and then changes his plans because of some guards?

The casual way this cretin proceeds to try to remake Christianity every time he opens his mouth is quite a spectacle; like the Bearded Woman, or such like horrible attraction.

But then again this is the guy who thinks he can improve the Our Father.

  1. The priest at Mass said that yes, Jesus did make a whip, but of course He didn’t actually touch any person or animal with it. And the priest knows this exactly how? Why would the crowd be intimidated by a man who makes a whip and then only swings it over His head or strikes the bare pavement and walls with it? Wouldn’t you think after a few minutes they’d start jeering at Jesus as they sat back down and continued to do business as usual?

  2. According to Haydock’s footnote, Origen considered it more miraculous than the wine at Cana that the guards didn’t arrest Him. Or perhaps, as suggested in your next post, the Apostles stood around with “Open Carry”. 😉

    • The answer to this is very simple. It was divinely wanted that the guards did not arrest him, and they wouldn’t because this was obviously a religious issue not linked to public order in the sense interesting to the Romans. The man wasn’t being seditious, merely teaching orthodoxy to Jews, somethign indifferent to Roman soldiers.
