What hideous tripe.
Let's see my Jesus told the money changers and sellers to leave the temple because commerce was not the the focus of worship. (it wasn't even tolerated there.) So you can carry your moral set in your personal behavior everywhere but you don't get to state the temple now is present in your commerce. So it is not a measure of ignorance or deceit. It is my religious position by the Bible.
Even a superstitious man has certain inalienable rights. He has a right to harbor and indulge his imbecilities as long as he pleases. . . He has a right to argue for them as eloquently as he can, in season and out of season. He has a right to teach them to his children. But certainly he has no right to be protected against the free criticism of those who do not hold them. He has no right to demand that they be treated as sacred. He has no right to preach them without challenge." -H.L. Mencken
