The Times has an in depth article here.
My favourite line is this from the irreverand George Hargreaves:
â€œThat money allows me to do the work that needs to be done to advance Christianity.
â€œWhat would they prefer me to do? Flush the money down the toilet? That would be ungodly.â€
Spoken like a true televangelist. Whatever happened to the love of money being the ‘root of all evil’ (Timothy 6:10)? Or is it only the bits about gays that we should worry about when obeying the literal word of God?
I don’t recall Jesus declining to throw the money lenders out of the temple, but instead asking for a cut so he could continue his good works, but perhaps its apocryphal.
