The owner claims he, " honestly did not mean to hurt anybody, didn’t mean to make anybody upset,[it's] just something I believe in very strongly,”. Another religious nut cherry picking the Bible so he can ignore the teachings of Jesus that make him uncomfortable.

I saw "The Robe" last night on TV again. There is a great scene where Richard Burton asks the maiden slave why Jesus left her a cripple. This guy pay attention to her answer.

The scene is shortly before Marcellus’ conversion to Christianity; he is speaking to a Christian girl in Cananamed Miriam. Miriam was paralyzed when she had met Jesus, but Jesus did not heal her paralysis. Nonetheless, Marcellus had seen her singing of her joy of faith to an assembly of Christians and was puzzled. I pick up the dialog after the conversation has already started:

Miriam: Jesus is alive, more surely than we are. He taught us to love God with all our heart and one another as ourselves.

Marcellus: Worlds are built on force, not charity. Power is all that counts.

Miriam: Perhaps we have something better than power. We have hope.

Marcellus (with great emphasis): That you of all people should say that! You can see (pointing to her crippled legs) that he (Jesus) left you just as he found you!

Miriam: I used to wonder about that myself. Until faith taught me the answer. He could have healed my body, and then it would have been natural for me to laugh and sing. And then I came to understand that He had done something even better for me. He had chosen me for His work. He left me as I am, so that all others like me might know that their misfortune needn’t deprive them of happiness within His kingdom.

Marcellus: It is beyond reason that anyone should think as you do!

Miriam: Not if you had only known Him, looked into His eyes, or heard Him speak.

It's a cheesy old flick, but I like the last scene. Caligula gets his beads read.
