|6 But Christ spent most of his time talking to Jews,
7 In the land of the Jews,
8 aWhich was a powerless province of Rome,
9 At a time when technology and the societal infrastructure were pretty primitive by today's standards,
10 And isn't it just possible that he'd change his tune somewhat if he were here today,
11 Talking to dozens of different ethnic and socioeconomic groups,
12 In the Most Chosen Nation on Earth,
13 Where high technology has resulted in a very bcomplicated societal infrastructure that is also pretty darned cspecialized?
14 Of course he would.
CHAPTER 51 For example, loving thy neighbor is just basic dcommon sense if you're a member of a poor conquered nation and your neighbor is the emost powerful empire in the history of the world to date,
2 And especially if you're a Jew,
4 And I mean no offense here,
5 fThe Jews have always been pretty good at being disagreeable and kind of uppity about all sorts of things,
6 Which is why nobody has ever liked them much,
7 And maybe part of the reason why they've been conquered about a thousand times,
||8 gAnd their nation utterly destroyed,
9 hAnd their people scattered all over the earth,
10 Which might not have happened if they'd listened to iChrist,
11 And been nicer,
13 Which would really have been a pretty easy way to live a more comfortable life,
14 jJust like Harry wants us to.
15 See what I mean?
CHAPTER 61 And while we're on the subject, it's also worth taking a second look at all those things Christ said about kmoneychangers, and charity, and how lrich men can't ride a camel through the eye of a needle, and mrender unto Caesar, and so forth,
2 nBecause it can't be news to any of you that Jews have always been pretty active in the moneychanging business,
3 oNot to mention how tight they are with a buck,
4 Which probably irritated Caesar as much as it's always irritated everyone else,
5 pBecause money's great,
6 And obviously everybody wants to have a lot of it,
7 Which is only human,
8 qAs every Christian church in the whole history of Christendom has always understood,
9 But can't we talk about something else now and then?
10 rAs for the camel thing, that's too weird to understand anyway,
