What a conundrum! Alienate half the flock in favor of the other half. Quite obviously, it's time for the church to take a stand, too.

The social justice movement in the Church has been quiet but strong in this country. The Church has shown itself to be on the side of laborers, the poor, needy, and immigrants.

Putting people out of their homes is a good way to do that?

Some of us think they should sacrifice their tax exempt status for even mentioning politics.

I'm not an expert on religion but wouldn't Jesus be labeled as a communist by the neo-cons these days? Share the wealth, help the poor and be good Samaritan, what would the bible belt people think? Capitalism or Christianity?

Share the wealth, help the poor and be a good Samaritan. Yeah, there's a lot of that came out of the Kremlin during the USSR days and a lot still coming out of Beijing, Hanoi, Habana and Caracas. I missed something in all this. Capitalism or Christianity? Carrot or Apple? Ford or bicycle? It depends if you are going from St Louis to Dallas or from one street to another in Saigon.It makes as much sense as Capitalism or Christianity, one being a system of economy and the other a religion.

That's why we are doomed as a nation, too lazy to invest new alternative energy, too lazy to walk or ride couple miles, drive thru everywhere, don't want to cut weight and indulge big unhealthy meals.

Each of the 7 sins we are doing it,

Gluttony for not restricting our diet, Wrath at other people for our own economic downfall, Pride for fighting 3 wars, Lust for all the divorces and affairs, Greed for false god in Capitalism, Sloth for not driving big SUV, Envy for other countries success, it must feel homeless right now to be a dying empire. We are continue to the path of the Romans.

I thought the bible mentioned the Samaritan first about 2000 years ago? Was the USSR existed back then? hmmmm
