18. You're misquoting Jesus.
Mark 10:13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God."

The word "suffer" in this context is an archaic use of the word that means "allow."

I assume you were kidding with your post, right?
