I am recovering the claim that:
Jesus was not crucified in a cathedral between two candles, but on a cross between two thieves, on the town garbage heap;
at a crossroad so cosmopolitan they had to write his title in Hebrew, and in Latin and in Greek...
at the kind of place where cynics talk smut, and thieves curse, and soldiers gamble.
Because that is where churchmen should be and what churchmen should be about."
