Tax collectors?
I have been told they were merchants; something evangelists should be aware off, but obviously some don't with the various trinkets sold in their church and what not.

I thought, according to the old testament, the "moneylenders."

do you know if they were also selling indulgences then, and if that was the real thing that torqued Jesus off?

No idea if pardons were sold then.The money changers and those selling the doves and other sacrifices were turning a profit at the expense of the poor and that set him off.

He had some pretty strong words about it, too:

And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

(Mark 11:17, King James Version)

it seems in this hellworld, that evil generally wins out over good. and not only that, but that evil eventually starts calling itself good, and real good it convinces others that it is the real evil instead and to eschew it at all costs. the guy who wrote the "warm fuzzies vs. cold pricklies" tale knew this.

Trump will get re-elected if American liberals don't smarten the Hell up.

"Russiagate" has been over-emphasized. This is largely because Hillary Clinton fans just can't accept that she is a scumbag. She and Trump are both extremely unpopular. The people want a real progressive. They can see right through Clinton's fakery.

http://www.businessinsider.com/hillary-clinton-is-just-as-unpopular-as-trump-2017-12

Ultimately, Trump will go down in history as one of the worst presidents in history. Once America has tasted real populism (the kind that the Scandinavians are enjoying at the moment) they won't ever want to think about the false populism of Trump.

Keep in Mind: During Bush's first term, people said that he would go down in history as one of America's greatest presidents. Nowadays, most conservatives don't even want to mention his name.

Do you think I'm mad at the conservatives? I'm mostly mad at the liberals right now. They're being airheaded and they're sabotaging their own movement by ignoring the issue of lobbying and demonizing Bernie.
