“Why would a Christian be anything but a Capitalist? “
Thank you. Capitalism calls for the freedom and responsibility of the individual. Any other system eventually and inevitably leads to enslavement.
We run our own consultant group and I go to weekend church. I give a portion of what I earned to my liberal church who whines about Iraq and Bush, but that’s OK. I;m not giving to them but to God.
My understanding is that if you are poor, and you take and take from others who work, why would you be more spiritual than I am when I give more? Those poor people that I see who asks my parish for food, based on the parish clerk I spoke with, are not even Christians. They come in, ask for food..leave.
The parish clerk even told me that when she tells them “would you like to attend our church services to thank the Lord?” ...they usually say NO. Bunch of ingrates. A nice “Praise be to God” would be nice.
