I saw the Killing Jesus book at Krogers. I had no interest in reading it.

I am thinking about rereading the first book of Roger Zelazny"s Amber series.

An all powerful being creates the universe and selects Jews as his special race. God impregnates a human with his offspring to deal with taxation in Judea. Said offspring is tortured and crucified

Stop it Bill..you are killing me. :hysterical:

Of course the only reason you don't believe O'Reilly is because you want to have sex outside marriage, possibly with another man.

Prominent Christians over here conveniently ignore one of the few direct commentaries attributed to JC, reinforcing the prohibitions against divorce and fornication.

O'Reilly is divorced.

I watched him being interviewed on some program Sunday. Instead of an interview, it looked like she was just feeding him questions.

If Billo found religion, he could be like Fred Phelps. Both are infamous, are assholes, are self righteous and the general feeling that their opinion is the only right one.

Aren't all these views shared by outhouse here at the forum? Maybe Bill O'Reilly is a member of our forum.
Not me.

And Bill skips some of the details I actuallt follow. Candida gets into what he missed that acedamia posits.


I dont follow all taxes as a "sole" cause, I view the taxes as another part of oppression all traditional Jews would have hated. I do include taxes and oppression. I dont put all the blame on Romans either as Bill eludes too.

I follow a Hellenistic division within the socioeconomic classes of the haves and have nots.

To me Jesus fighting the Hellenistic corruption in the temple, makes much more sense then him trying to take on the Romans which I dont find plausible.
