      Flipping over the tables and driving out deceitful “merchants” as you call them is equal to an innocent business person getting beat up and store looted? Jesus had a clear purpose to clear the temple that was being misused. The rioters are indiscriminately causing destruction. I applaud peaceful protestors now calling these rioters out saying what the hell are you doing?  They are right.

       

      Your argument is well Jesus got mad and stirred things up so the rioters can too. Parallels, eh?  So can a suicide bomber or school shooter say I have been wronged so I’ll just stir things up?

       

      Jesus would care about the injustice to George Floyd but you imply he wouldn’t care about the injustices to these other people?  As you said, you don’t know Jesus.

      Jesus wouldn't care about peoples need to make money being a bigger deal than racist killings, inequality, and injustices toward people with just a little bit more melanin...of that I'm certain.  Especially since Jesus was a person of color himself.

       

      I know Jesus...I followed him and made the Bible my life's mission spending over 7 years in collegiate study of religion...from philosophy to history, to reading the Hebrew and Koine Greek scriptures in the original languages.  I was going to school to be a minister.  I understand faith, works, grace, and spirit just fine.  I only became an atheist in the last 10 years and I'm in my 40's.

       

      I can say that I know Jesus and the Bible more than just about 95% of the Christians I meet.  I can also say I understand the nuances of faith and most of the worlds major religions having studied the subject for so long.

       

      I don't tell you this to brag, I tell you it so that you understand that I'm making this comparison not because it's an exact 1 for 1 copy of things that happened...but to cause people to challenge their perception on things.

       

      Perception is everything and for those of us that do not challenge it fail not only ourselves, but our society.  So I had hoped that people would step away from themselves and their Christian bias for a few moments to reflect on the similarities.

       

      I understand why the riots are happening.  While I don't agree with them...I also don't say "F these rioters" to start a post...because hundreds of years of oppression and injustice perpetrated onto folks who happen to look different than a majority of other folks...has led to righteous indignation.  I think change is overdue.  I'm sorry a few folks insured businesses are having windows broken, product looted, or fires...but I just can't rustle up enough care for those folks...they're rebuild.  The folks who are black will not come back to life.  They're gone.  That is why I attempted to make you think.

       

      This is the last I'll say on the subject.

      "Perception is everything and for those of us that do not challenge it fail not only ourselves, but our society." This is precisely why I had to stand against your inaccurate perception of Jesus.  I don't post on here about things other than football, but your initial post trying to equate Jesus to the rioters (as if He'd be right there with them) demanded the truth.   

  4. So much for social distancing. I wait 30 minutes to go inside a Home Depot but a mob of people can go in and bust up a Target. Sheesh.

      It's interesting anyone ever thought bottlenecking the entire population into a few big box stores was a good strategy to keep the population apart.

  5. Kid intrigues me if we have the right relationship. Interesting Alabama and Florida didn’t make the cut.
  6. I like this get. Nebraska is a national college football brand. I think it is better for college football when Miami is good but their fans seem to dwindle when their team is bad (FSU too). There's lots of other schools like this we compete against (some in conference too).
