Why was Jesus Crucified?

According to a syndicated column in my diocesan paper, Jesus was crucified because He was hated because of His "inclusivity."

I know columnists must sometimes need to really fish for a hook (isn't that a backwards metaphor?), on which to build a piece for which a deadline is approaching, inspiration may not always strike, but allow me to ask, Huh?

The writer also tells us that, "after the death of every person, we receive his or her spirit in a way that was not possible before he or she died."

I think to say that we "receive" any spirit but the Holy Spirit is ... probably not the best turn of phrase?
