"Unlike Jesus..."[edit]

"Unlike Jesus, the Avignon popes did not object to the close proximity of religious centers and currency exchange."

That doesn't seem like proper tone to me... gren グレン 04:33, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

I'll rephrase. Savidan 06:29, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

It is also inaccurate. Jesus didn't object to "the close proximity," he objected to the currency exchange being IN the Temple (Matthew 21:12; Mark 11:15; Luke 19:45; John 2:14). The Temple area referred to is the Court of the Gentiles, a part of the Temple complex. It would be analogous to having the currency exchange in the narthex or vestibule of a Christian church.
