Personally, I reckon Jesus was morally questionable in a lot of ways, too. Especially when it comes to the 'family values' that certain people tout:
"If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple." (Luke 14:26) [Hmmm...but what about women coming to him?]
"I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household." (Matthew 10:35-36)
You know, some of that does sound pretty cultish...
But to be fair, Jesus could be a bit of a hoot, too, especially when it comes to fig trees.
"And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany; and he lodged there. Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. " (Matthew 21:17-19)
I guess it must be a parable of some sort, but done as a piece of performance art. I don't find the bible all that inspiring, frankly. To be fair, I did try with it, many years ago, but I just kept on laughing.
