Melchizedek's Munchies

by Rose Marie Berger, Brian Bolton | February 2004

Hungry for the holy land

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)
