Overheard at the Counter: God - a few thoughts

The conversation had turned to my brother-in-law defending Donald Trump for the sole reason that Trump moved the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. 

"He says the Jews are God's chosen people and we all better get in line behind them or God will come down hard on us," I said.

My nephew, the poet MR, responded, "I've been reading some studies lately, and anybody who thinks God is pro-Israel hasn't read Ezekiel."

Niall Carter replied, "Reminds me of a quote by Giuseppe Salinghetti.  It was something along the lines of, 'Anybody who thinks God is pro-money hasn't read the Bible'!"

Upon consideration, we all agreed that there was a bit of wisdom in that statement.
