More Militant Jesus: "Fight Church"
Somehow, in December we get "Free Market Jesus", who sells us stuff on the TV to give to kids programmed to believe in Satan Claus.
But just like the modern Conservative movement, "Free Market Jesus" is also "Militant Jesus".
Please take note on how the Prince of Peace no longer speaks of social justice and brotherhood, the new message is "The enemy wants to destroy you personally, destroy your family".
That enemy should be the darker side of human nature, in which case one would look over the deep introspective cliff of Ego.
Instead, the easier demon is "the other".
Some other guy who worships a different version of Jesus.
Hey, I've come to respect MMA for the spectacle of the times that it is. But isn't there a mixed message here?
As I recently heard a comedian say; I can appreciate Jesus, I just don't care for some of his fan club.
