So why was Jesus given gold when he was born? Wouldn’t diapers or clothing make more sense?
Not really, as they kingly gifts.
Kingly gifts? For Jesus?
He is King.
Oh, King, eh. Very nice. And how d’he get that? By exploiting the workers! By hanging on to outdated imperialist dogma which perpetuates the economic and social differences in our society! If there’s ever going to be any progress…
What?
Anyway…who exactly is he King of?
…the jews.
Who are the jews?
Are you joking? The jewish people, you’re name states you’re jewish.
Well, I didn’t vote for him.
You don’t vote for Kings.
How did he become King then?
It was foretold that the messiah (king) would come, and he was the son of God.
Listen, being the son of a deity is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not having a god as a father. You can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just because daddy is a divine being. I mean if I went around saying I was emperor because my papa is Thor, they’d lock me away.
Are you f***ing serious???
I’m just trying to clarify…
