This might also help with the elderly Jews… That pastor who annointed Sarah Palin in order to protect her from witches and other things? He also said this about Israelite bankers and how powerful they are:

The second area whereby God wants us, wants to penetrate in our society is in the economic area. The Bible says that the wealth of the wicked is stored up for the righteous. It’s high time that we have top Christian businessmen, businesswomen, bankers, you know, who are men and women of integrity running the economics of our nations. That’s what we are waiting for. That’s part and parcel of transformation. If you look at the — you know — if you look at the Israelites, that’s how they work. And that’s how they are, even today.

It’s at about 1:20 on this video, and comes via Sullivan:

that block quote is vague and incoherent in regards to jews. i'm not at all clear what he's implying there. not usable, imo.

that said, i think he's saying the jews are the wicked wealthy, but he could easily squirm out of that accusation if pinned.

Hey, guys? I thought I laid this out pretty clearly before. Christians aren't supposed to be wealthy, much less bankers. You know, what with the usury and all.

I know I look like a douche quoting myself, even in translation, but here it is again:

"It is easier for a camel* to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God."

(*Note that the translators screwed up - "camel" is slang for the end of a rope. Ah, well. I forgive you guys.)

Well said, Jebus.

Didn't you also say something about rich people showing their love/faith by "selling all they have and giving to the poor"?

Maybe you need to make that one "hip", so the Mars Hill narcissists can comprehend it.

It sounds to me that he's saying Jews control the banks.

Man, I wish we controlled the banks. Or had ridiculous wealth to draw on all the time. I'm sick of having to work.
