If you don’t get it, you really don’t get it

The wapo shows a bunch of people who read the Bible, but not closely enough. It’s worth it, when making Biblical allusions, to reread the relevant passages to double-check the imagery.
This time around, the reference is to the single biggest sin committed by the Israelites– the making of a golden calf. There’s just one flaw: the response of those loyal to God was to kill the makers of the calf (Aaron excepted) and strenuously punish everyone involved.
Seriously: if you want to say that Wall Street is bowing to Mammon, why precisely are you the one making the idol?
