That’s what Whoopi Goldberg said on “The View.”

They were talking about the greatest sin. Ms. W said it was “intolerance.”

Then she went on to state that outrageous quote for above title.

Jesus was intolerant?

Then why did they murder Him? Because He was intolerant; for example Jesus was for holiness and the Jerusalem fake religionists were for themselves.

If anything, Jesus was not tolerant of all people and all matters. He pointed to the Ten Commandments and summed them into two: Love God with all you are and love your neighbor as yourself.

Not everyone was willing to make that commitment.

Then He spoke on prayer and fasting. He healed on the Sabbath. He said that He came to fulfill the law, not to destroy it.

He labeled some of his foes as children of the devil, the father of lies. He said that some circulating around Him were going to hell for being hypocrites.

Jesus cast out merchants from the Temple because they were greedily desecrating the holy environs.

For that and more, Jesus got into hot water with the Temple clique. That is why they laced Him up on Calvary.

A man thirty-three years old from the other side of the tracks does not get murdered for being sweet. He gets murdered for making certain segments mad as knife blades.

Ms W thought herself cute on “The View” by sounding religious Christian-like. She is often on the other side of the wall. But with looking at Jesus the accommodating way she did, she wanted to make huggy pals with biblical believers.

Of course, that is impossible for Ms. W for she has too much anti-Bible baggage.

But hearing her say what she said just forced my fingers to the keyboard to type this piece. The bottom line is that Jesus was exceptionally intolerant of all that was religiously bogus.

He set the record straight per eternity’s moral base. Anything else was of the devil. Much of His audience did not cotton to the eternal moral base, hence His creating archenemies out for His holy neck.

Ms. W and other biblical illiterates need to know that.

So there.
