When asked, what would Jesus do; remember freaking out, whipping people and overturning tables is an acceptable answer.
Heh, I might just make it this blog's motto

John 2:15 is an interesting passage; It is the only one of the four Gospels which describes the fashioning of a whip for the cleansing of the temple.

Some manuscripts qualify it as "a kind of whip," but many scholars from the past few centuries rejected it, claiming it was an addition made by ancient scribes to mitigate the apparent physical hostility of our Lord and rejected it.

Father Raymond Brown, in his famous Anchor Bible Commentary on John, notes that the Bodmer papyri lends credence to the qualification. Supporting this is the fact that the Greek text describes the whip as being made out of σχοινίον (schoinion), a diminutive of σχοῖνος (schoinos), i.e., small rushes or grass. The "whip" he fashioned probably served as a symbol of authority rather than as a tool he actually used.

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
