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.
