[MOD CUT]

Quote:
Last fall, Occupy Los Angeles’ vast encampment was very close to the city’s Skid Row, which has the largest concentration of homeless people in the United States; and hundreds of Skid Row residents spent days and nights at the camp. Many visitors to the Occupy LA camp objected to the presence of these destitute, often emotionally troubled, weather-worn souls; but the occupiers themselves never wavered from their humanity. As much as Christ’s caring for the destitute lifted hearts and renewed hope, the transformative effect of Occupy – for the homeless people who were welcomed at the L.A. camp– was palpably evident. There is no doubt that any meaningful social justice movement in the United States must address the epidemic of homelessness in the wealthiest country in the world.
Would Jesus Occupy? | Common Dreams

Conservatives have far more in common with the money changers in the temple than those who followed Christ.

I believe so, and I'm the last person in the world you would consider a religious fanatic. Spiritual beliefs and God...yes. Religion. NO. Religion, IMO is a manmade construct created and designed to manipulate & control the masses.

But to answer the question ? I don't think Jesus would need to occupy because he wouldn't have put up with the situation of the banks running the world in the first place.

See usury, in the bible.
