... For Greed. Extreme Francis Monopoly by Google Images w/caption by Rev Dan

Could it work?

In the game of life, as in Monopoly, there are penalties and consequences.

The man who knows 

he has enough

is rich.

                                                              - Lao Tsu 


The pain of Fancis and his social justice philosophy runs deep in the Right's backside. You might even say it's downright hemorrhoidal. Of course, Francis has never intended to be a pain in anyone's rear, but his economics and quest for compassion have caused shock waves among the high and mighty of capitalism.

       "One truth shines out from the Bible: Jesus spoke to the individual, never to government or government policy. Jesus was a capitalist, preaching personal responsibility, not a socialist."


Yes, that bit of eschatology was from   World Net Daily   trying to prove that Jesus was against redistribution of wealth. Unfortunately, WND never touches upon the quandary of a rich man, a camel and the eye of a needle. They never talk about the poor inheriting the kingdom of heaven. They may covertly grieve over the wealthy man being asked to give all of his worldly goods to follow Jesus.  And capitalism's cheer leaders routinely neglect to site an important passage from Acts of the Apostles:

       "The community of believers was of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own,   but they had everything in common . With great power the apostles bore witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great favor was accorded them all.

There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles,

There was no needy person among them, for those who owned property or houses would sell them, bring the proceeds of the sale, and put them at the feet of the apostles,  
and they were distributed to each according to need . . ."   (emphasis mine)


Of course, Karl Marx wrote it instead of Luke, so it certainly can't be in any sense Scripture. In fact, a husband (Ananais) and wife (Saphirra) were struck dead because they lied about their greed. Nope, can't possibly be Scripture.  


Or maybe God was just kidding? by Google Images w/caption by Rev Dan



Joel Watts   (Huffington Post)

"Jon Moseley, a Tea Party member, declares   Jesus Christ is a capitalist. He writes against Pope Francis's Apostolic Exhortation,   The Joy of the Gospel. Jon sells vacation packages to the Bahamas. The   Holy Father   is a trained theologian, chemist, and philosopher who is the spiritual leader of the Roman Catholic Church standing in the line of St. Peter. One of these is not like the other. Which is why I was surprised with the Holy Father started to sell vacation packages, er, I mean when Moseley started to spout off against the pope's theological position."
