Whatever Chavez meant, this just goes to show that it's not easy to use 
a Christian metaphor without creating some ambiguity, given that 
Christ-worship is Europe's historic "Faith of Genocide."

Ignoring that question for a moment though - i am interested in knowing 
why Michael A. Lebowitz describes Judas as the first capitalist. I am 
used to hearing Jesus described as the "first socialist" (and first 
anarchist, and first communist, and first feminist, and first 
environmentalist, ad nauseum... one would think the guy walked on water 
or something!), but Judas being the first capitalist?  Definitely not my 
reading of the New Testament, a book i had the mixed pleasure of having 
to read overb and over again in Catholic school...

I wait in anxious theological anticipation!
