No ~ I didn't say he was one: I said "your bumhole", in the way that Ricky Tomlinson as Mr Royle used to say "my arse!" i.e = 'your statement was erroneous'. Sorry if that was not clear.

The choice of Barrabas over Jesus was, nevertheless, a democratic choice. It is an matter of much theological dispute as to whether this was the 'right' or 'wrong' choice anyhow; no Crucifixion of Jesus, no Christianity! No doubt such as Duns Scotus & Aquinas will have had much to say of this. A poor analogy IMO, in any event.
