“Jesus didn’t die for our W2s” – @candidamoss on #killingjesus

Sometimes O’Reilly includes two versions of the same story so that Jesus repeats the same action or says the same thing twice. In this book, Jesus overturned the moneychanger tables twice, for example. He really doesn’t like bureaucrats. On other occasions O’Reilly picks one particular Gospel (usually the longest version, rather than the earliest) and we never find out why.

  1. Who does he think he’s kidding. Organized religion is one of the largest bureaucratic collections on the face of the earth! I would love to know how many Catholic priests have MBAs or some approximation thereof.
