More on the Scottish Macho Christianity row…

The Times has an in depth article here.

My favourite line is this from the irreverand George Hargreaves:

“That money allows me to do the work that needs to be done to advance Christianity.

“What would they prefer me to do? Flush the money down the toilet? That would be ungodly.”

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.
