    This picture was taken at a copycat protest in London. What does it say to you? Does it strike a chord, or is it just a manipulation of your faith?

    I may be insufficiently religious, but --

    throwing moneychangers out of a TEMPLE is not the same thing as throwing out the capitalists from a capitalist-founded and based Republic.

    Nothing but a cynical attempt to use religious symbology for political purposes. Cheap street theater, so typical of Marxists who imagine themselves to be clever. By the way, it was "moneychangers" not "money lenders"; there's a difference, and it only serves to illustrate further the protestor's complete hypocrisy and ignorance.

    It does strike a chord, a chord that the guy, just like you, is an idiot. Wall Street is not in a church.

    Manipulate my faith?
    Not in the slightest.

    Mockery?
    Yep.

    Seriously doubt if the street thespian is even a Christian himself.

    I seem to recall that President Coolidge thought differently, at least about commercial enterprises in general if not Wall Street in specific: "The man who builds a factory builds a temple, and the man who works there worships there."

    I also seem to remember that President (Franklin) Roosevelt used a similar metaphor, speaking of government as analogous to the temple, when he referred to the money-changers being driven out of "the temple of our civilization."

    Considering how little use Jesus had for the arrogant rich, the idea that he would be a supporter or participant in Occupy Wall Street is by no means a stretch.
