3. The same reason why we worship BABY Jesus.
The establishment doesnt want Jesus words to hit home. They are revolutionary. The powers that be, want the part that stops the slaves from stealing the silver, not the part that stood up to hate, power, and selfishness. Dead God, and baby Jesus are far less disruptive of capitalism than angry temple table upsetter. Witness the rebranding of corporate Jesus. Soon, rambo Jesus will have his own bible version. And we scold Muslims, for Making Jihad mainstream. FUCK CORPORATE JESUS.
