Melchizedek's Munchies

by Rose Marie Berger, Brian Bolton | February 2004

Hungry for the holy land?

Hungry for the holy land? Taste the flavor of Philistine fury in the "Goliath Burger" at the Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Florida—a $16 million, 15-acre living evangelical tract of Zion’s Hope ministry. Wash it down with a "Thirsty Camel Cooler" before hitting the Jerusalem Street Market, spelunking the Qumran Dead Sea Caves, or checking out first-century Jerusalem at the largest indoor model in the world. All this—and a re-enactment of Christ’s passion—for only $29.75. (Spiritual enlightenment not included.)

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
