Luke 19:23-27
Why didn’t you put my money in the bank? On my return, I could have had the money together with interest.”

Then he said to some other servants standing there, “Take the money away from him and give it to the servant who earned ten times as much.”

But they said, “Sir, he already has ten times as much!”

The king replied, “Those who have something will be given more. But everything will be taken away from those who don’t have anything. Now bring me the enemies who didn’t want me to be their king. Kill them while I watch!”

Discuss.

I’ve read this passage in a variety of translations, and all I can say is “What the hell?” This is Jesus, as written by Quentin Tarantino.

@ 1

Or Jesus as written for the Koch Brothers.

Lesson: the system is rigged – mean, vindictive assholes are in charge, those who cooperate are unjustly rewarded, those who resist are screwed, and well, you might as well just move on and go for a ride on a donkey.

(This passage may explain why Obama decided we didn’t need any serious prosecution of the banksters who crashed the world economy.)

It does seem to be a passage that greed is good, god rewards the rich and takes from the poor.

5. God spews:

Sorry folks, there is irony in the story you call the New Testament. The man it depicts as Me become human:

a. Does “miracles” but never does a good deed within humanly powers

Look at this from my point of view. As the omnipotent being, miracles are cheap. One of you who gives $18 to Doctors Without Borders is being far more generous than I would be by catering fish to the multitudes.

b. Shows so much vanity that he has himself crucified to die n glory.

Most humans acting like this would be diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic. Ask yourself, would other good humans make this choice? Isn’t it odd that Christians deride Muslims and Vikings for their eagerness to die in glory?


c. While preaching poverty for others, lives of the largess of his middle class Dad.

Jesus was not the first or the last holy man or self designated version of Me to do this. One of Gandhi’s sponsors told the Mahatma that its cost huge amounts of the rich man’s t support Gandhi in poverty.

@5c Being poor is expensive.

Sounds like Barak Obama… Or any other modern politician…

@8 You’re a horse’s ass. Obama is straightening out the mess you wingnuts left behind, although it’s such a big mess it may take a generation to clean it up — and then only if Republicans don’t get back into power and muck things up again.

Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have set a new record and are accelerating. There hasn’t been this much CO2 in the atmosphere for at least 2 million years. But the deniers will say it’s natural — the dinosaurs are causing it with their heavy breathing during dinosaur sex.

The rich are convinced that they can always outrun the destruction and havoc they create.

Can they?
