After all, Jesus observed of the Conservatives of his own day “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees!..” (Matthew 23 is interesting because he goes on at length and it becomes obvious why they are going to get him killed.)
Whether or not you believe in an historical Jesus and his divine mission (I tend to think there probably was an historical character in there somewhere and some of his sayings are probably quite accurately recorded, but that is as far as it goes) it is extremely difficult - camel/rope through eye of needle difficult - to reconcile “conservative Christian” behaviour with the recorded sayings of Jesus. The present Pope at least seems to be making an effort in the direction of Gospel literalism. But the Bible Belt lot:
Judaism is focussed on the contractual relationship between Yahveh and Jews. The Bible is basically one long argument about what this means in practice. Stuff like afterlifes, the origin of the universe and so on are not really of great interest; creation myths are just bunged into a collection of “Just So Stories” in the first book, and that’s it. The important stuff comes later; about whether God approves of kings (outcome uncertain), how he feels about ethics (a lot of prophets have very strong views on the subject) his views on strong women (mixed) and his views on relations with gentiles (very mixed).
Which is why it is so funny, in a sad way, that a collection of non-Jewish white people have appropriated the OT, completely missed the point of swathes of it, and used it to make up a religion which causes progressive Jews to despair of humanity and in the past has caused immense problems for Jews in general.
I don’t know whether this woman just suffers badly from Dunning-Krueger effect or whether she thought this was a clever money making wheeze that meant she would never need to work again, but we have to look to Bible Belt religion as an explanation of so much stupidity. Sadly, all the preachers responsible for it can’t be sent down for contempt of court.
