    The way I read the OT, there was this huckster called Moses who conned everyone into believing he had a direct line to Yahweh. This meant he could install himself and his family as priests to lol around in a big tent while the rest fed them roast goat.
    Pretty much the way Mega-Church evangelists do today.
