If The Pope Really Took The Bible Seriously…
Pope Benedict has lashed out in fury at leaders of the banking industry, and the skanky politicians who keep bending over for them. He made it crystal clear that any politician who is Catholic cannot — absolutely NOT — support those sleazy moneychangers.
“Jesus drove them from the temple, and you sluts keep going down on them!” His Holiness thundered.
The Pope backed up his blistering speech by reciting just one of the many Biblical passages that condemn usury:
“If you lend money to any of My people who are poor among you, you shall not be like a moneylender to him; you shall not charge him interest. If you ever take your neighbor's garment as a pledge, you shall return it to him before the sun goes down. For that is his only covering, it is his garment for his skin. What will he sleep in? And it will be that when he cries to Me, I will hear, for I am gracious.”
Pope Benedict finished his withering criticism by asking: “Are there too many big words in those passages? Or do you think God just wanted to hear the sound of His own voice???”
