What strange takes on Christ. I wonder what the source material is.


Anarchy crowd = sermon on the mount

beat a politician with a whip = Cleansing of the temple ("And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple")

help your local sex worker = Anointing of jesus feet by sinning woman


Do you have a chapter and verse for where Jesus was beating politicians with whips? Jesus was seeking to protect the place of prayer, where the place where non jews were allowed to worship was turned into a marketplace, preventing people from worshiping.

I suppose the analogy would be to be against those who get in the way of free exercise of religion?

Jesus taught to fulfill one's obligation to the government, but responsibility for moral behavior was individualistic. I'm not sure that's anarchy. He didn't teach against the government, but rather for personal responsibilities.

He didn't stop anyone from following him and his teaching, regardless of which background they left behind to do so. "Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more" is what he taught, forgiveness and repentance.

I guess I could see how someone could put together that meme from a very partial understanding of select phrases pulled out of context. I tend to have a response to that because all sorts of wrong has happened throughout history from people running with a very partial understanding of select phrases pulled out of context.
