    It's people like Evangelicals that give religion a bad name

    And I say that as someone who is very non-religious. It sucks that what is mostly just a thing in people's lives that helps them through day to day matters, great and small, is then held up on a stick that also says a bunch of stupid, hateful, bigoted stuff by these sort of fuckwits

    "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried." - G.K.C.

    Also unsurprisingly there is a difference between being culturally religious and an active (and sincerely trying) adherent of said religion.

    As much as I love GKC, as a former Christian who tried very, very hard, and runs in online communities with other former Christians who tried so hard that some of them were preachers or theologians for years, I disagree strongly with that quote!

    That quote is like saying, "real communism has never been tried"

    Christianity cannot fail, it can only be failed.

    Also, why be pissed at the money changers?
    Why not be pissed at god for demanding sacrifices that require people to get their money changed to local currency?

    The temple had its -own- fake temple currency.
    The money changers were foisting microtransactions on the people worshipping.
    Pay to pray at its worst.

    No they weren't.
    Priests were, or god was.
    Go fight priests, or god.

    So, it was the priests then.
    But more specifically the money changers who set the exchange rate.

    Basically the temple was demanding people change their money from the Roman standard into Jewish coinage, before the worshippers could then purchase animals to be sacrificed.
    People could still bring their own animals, but Jerasulem was the central place of worship, and so many people had traveled too far to bring their animals with them.
    Hence the necessity of a local animal market (although not necessarily inside the temple), but not the money conversion.

    I'm not sure why the Jewish people kept their own coin going alongside the Roman coin, but I expect it's because they either wanted to keep themselves separate or simply because the temple demanded tithes be paid in it.

    The Romans were occupying the country at that point, and Jews were their own community and for the most part not very interested in being Roman. The Romans were not wanted, they took over. No one who has ever taken over that area was wanted by the Jews. The Jews had had their own currency before the Romans, and they were going to keep having it. I think that was one of the many points in the Jews' history in the Levant pretty much since the religion found its origins there where whoever had invaded and was trying to get them to go away at the moment decided it wasn't worth the fight as long as they kept paying taxes, which IIRC was part of the problem at the time. The book Kosher Jesus goes into it. He was really pissed that the people in the Temple weren't behaving as strictly as they should have been, especially since how we are meant to handle money is very carefully laid out in the Torah, and once again invaders were messing it all up.

    It's really ironic to me that Jesus was essentially mad that Jews weren't living close enough to the Torah. It's been a long time since I've read it. I don't remember it as well as I'd like and I should really pick it up again.

    Also I think the Roman coin having pictures of Ceasar (or other roman gods) was an issue for the temples on account of the whole 'no craven images' thing.

    The Tyrian shekel apparently had images of Baal on it, so I don't know how the Roman issued coins could have been any worse on that count.

    he was a Carthaginian deity of loads of stuff, sort of like their Odin or Zeus equivalent

    I don't think this is actually supported by the facts these days, but my favorite theory was that "Beelzebub" is a pun on "Baal Zebul" that changed it from "Lord of Heaven" to "Lord of the Flies." So it was basically just the Israelites dunking on their neighbors.

    Baal slew the snake-men of the Ocean and made them safe for us to fish, plus he sends all the good weather for farming and sailing, and also is in charge of being just and virtuous

    I've always said on these forums that Baal's good name is constantly besmirched and it is a travesty

    "There are two sides to this coin," Lansbury told the Radio Times. "We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us — and this is where we are today."

    Lansbury continued, "We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that. Although it’s awful to say we can’t make ourselves look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped."

    This is disappointing!

    it is

    although I guess angela lansbury is 92 years old and that probably plays into some very different experiences / expectations

    it also indicates that maybe she should be wise by that point and should actually have listened to what people have said in some of those 92 years.

    age is not an excuse for being awful.

    I mean she probably did

    but if you were born in 1925 then the messaging you got in the first 40 years of your life was very much "yes this is always women's fault"

    that doesn't make it any more true or any less abhorrent, but I guess I can understand it more from a 92 year old than a 32 year old?

    Also not a good argument. My grandmother was born in 1931 and lived in LA before growing up and going to college in Oklahoma, and she doesn't have views like this at all.
