    ...and kicked "money changers" out of the temple. Too bad we don't have a "Gangsta Jaay-zus" around here to deal with lobbyists and the sellouts that take their money.

      Was it George Carlin who suggested that if He came back, and were executed again (as would likely happen -- if He weren't first just shot down by some psycho with a badge, or worse, some wannabe without one), the next millenia's Christians would put little electric chairs on their rosaries and church walls?

        if Jesus came back, as His original self, during the Inquisition, the Grand Inquisitor would recognize Him, and would lecture Him about how He made a big mistake by not accepting Satan's offer of control of the world's kingdoms; but the Church CORRECTED Jesus' mistake and that is why they were "more effective" at proselytizing than Jesus was.

        And since Dostoevsky was Russian, the Church he was referring to was not just the Roman Church, but ALL the coercion-based churches, including his own Russian Orthodox, the Puritans, Church of England, and many of today's "evangelical" churches.

        (and by the way, isn't it interesting how the same Russian officials who saluted the atheistic Soviet flag are shown in Russian Orthodox services today?)
