    well... other than it was the old testament story of Moses that the Golden Calf involves...Love of money is still idolatry.

    You did not read it either, I see, The idolators are the ones that make the idol, not random people the idol makers try to present them to.

    Oh...bullshit. Idolators are people who worship idols... It matters not who makes them.

    i·dol·a·ter or i·dol·a·tor (-dl-tr)
    n.
    1. One who worships idols.
    2. One who blindly or excessively admires or adores another.

    Yes... I have read the bible... furthermore, I apparently can Comprehend it too.

    You really are dense, idolators make idols. They make idols out of money, sports figures, buildings, even the environment. I know hundreds of people that accuse people like Boehner of idolatry, and none of them have ever felt the slightest urge to make an idol. The reason for that is actually pretty simple, they know that making an idol makes them an idolator.

    This group, by making an idol, proved they are idolators.

    It's always a hoot to watch leftists try to use the Bible to support their bullshit ideas. It's like listening to someone try to communicate in a foreign language by reading out of a dictionary.

    Ummm... you're wrong. Idolators are not people who "physically" make idols. Idolators are people who worship idols. Idols can be anything.... It doesn't even have to be "made" into an idol. It could be being obsessive about a sports team, or rock band. It could be obsessively watching too much TV. Obsessing and worshiping money is idolatry.

    The people that sent Boehner the golden calf were acting sarcastically. I mean, do you really think that they sent him that for him to worship? Do you really think that they worship that golden calf? gimme a break dude... you are lost. Pick up the bible and read Jesus' words instead of playing stupid semantics games. You might learn something.

    Not sure why this matters...?

    Last I checked the Bible was neither the basis for our system of laws and is not our Constitution.

    I liked the one where two naked teens in a garden with a snake determined the eternal fate of the human race. It doesn't get any better than that.
