1. Source of religious thought on subject. (you can lecture me when you sell all that you have and give to the poor and follow Him)

2. God ordered those blood sacrifices. Jesus was mad because the focus was on making money instead of prayer and supplication to God.

3. It is a clear delineation by Jesus that his religion was not making money. Not that that is wrong. It just doesn't get the label of being a religious, God focused activity.

4. The boss/owner does not get to dictate his particular religious beliefs in the market place of commerce. He does get to witness his religious beliefs but not mandate them.
