Skip to comments.Millionaire Michael Moore Calls Capitalism Un-Christian (BARF!)
Posted on 09/27/2011 7:13:21 AM PDT by maggief
..[Piers] Morgan asked Moore about his opposition to capitalism, especially given Moore's financial success as a filmmaker. When asked if his movie-making amounted to a capitalist endeavor, Moore replied "Is it really?" He then noted that "the only reason I do well is because people want to see my movies," before indicting the modern financial system as a corruption of capitalism, a "shell game."
As Moore concluded his remarks on capitalism, he said that "it's not American." Additionally, he said "it's not Christian or Jewish," after citing 46 million poor people that Moore believes the capitalist economic system neglects. "None of the major religions, in fact they all," Moore said, "say it's one of the worst sins you could commit, is to take such a large piece of the pie while others suffer."

Anti-capitalist: Michael Moore made a surprise visit to Occupy Wall Street protesters last night where he said Americans have no say over how the economy is run
Oh? and what church do you belong to Michael? the church of the slimy slug?
Too late. :(
2 Corinthians 9:7
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
So why doesn’t this fat tub of crap give away all of his money? What a loser.
He’s worth about $50 million because of Capitalism, I notice he hasn’t donated it to the poor or anything.
bark barf alert.
It’s capitalism for him.
Marxism for us.
He confuses christian giving to charity with forcing people to give to government programs
Well, he would be an expert on taking vast amounts of pie before anyone else got some.
Ah, nothing like an unbeliever, a non-Christian - defining what a Christian is and isn’t!
Like poor kid from central Africa telling you what a pilot does in the cockpit of an airliner.......
OK, Mikey, then if that's the case then you shouldn't be charging folks. BTW, are your eyes brown, Mr. Moore? (because you're really full of it to the gills.)
Forgive me if I don’t take theology tips from Michael Moore.
He’s a great, big hypocrite.
He’s a giant, socialist weasel.
Didn’t Moore go to fat camp in Florida? I guess he failed......
...he said "it's not Christian or Jewish," after citing 46 million poor people that Moore believes the capitalist economic system neglects. "None of the major religions, in fact they all," Moore said, "say it's one of the worst sins you could commit, is to take such a large piece of the pie while others suffer."
It is not the place of government to tend to the poor, Christ told his disciples to remember the poor, not once chiding the Pharisee's or Rome for not doing so. Further sin is personal, so it is a non-sequitor to say that taking a 'larger piece of the pie' is sinful. If that were so, Micheal would be one of the greatest of sinners since he obviously has taken a larger piece of the pie, in more than one sense of the word.
It’s been long said that, in general,
the lower class are Democrats
the middle class (ie, “bourgeoisie”) are Republican
and the wealthy are Communists.
Hey Moore. In communism you would no longer have unlimited access to Little Debbie Snack Cakes.
Actually, he most assuredly considers himself the equivalent of the “nomenklatura”, who had access to all sorts of resources that everyone else did not.
Moore and those of his ilk will be first up against the wall, when the Revolution they so covet happens.
He’s a monstrous, conniving pig.
Never read the parable of the talents, has he?
2 Thessalonians 3:10 (New International Version)
10 For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.
Returning after a long absence, the master asks his servants for an accounting. The first two servants explain that they have each put their money to work and doubled the value of the property they were entrusted with, and so they are each rewarded:
this from a guy who used to put stink bombs in the incense burners when he was an altar boy at St. Johns in Davison
I wonder what God thinks about a big fat rich blob who wants to take other people’s money, but hangs on to his own? He said he got rich because people went to his movies. Corporations get rich because people buy their products. What’s the difference? Mikey has taken advantage of loopholes, but that’s OK?
He says this line while sitting on a FIFTY MILLION DOLLAR personal bank account.
Michael Moore: Aggressively Hypocritical and Smug About It.
Maybe, maybe not. But what he has done is cultivated a specific following because of his whacko far-left statements. Those like-minded Marxists watch his movies... like moths to a flame. The Left does do an excellent job of sticking together and supporting one another despite their various self-interest factions.
In other words, every time he does an interview, he could write off any related expenses as the cost of advertising.
Seven deadly sins:
Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.
Not one of them that Moore doesn’t epitomoize.
Egad. Where to start?
Capitalism isn't about taking. It is services/product offered in exchange for something of value. That value is determined by one party and if equitable, is paid by the second party. If not equitable, the second party can refuse and do business elsewhere. Simple.
Others suffer because they lack the will, the strength, the vision and are too lazy to get off their arses and get in the game.
As with many that use the word Christian Mr. Moore seems not to be willing to support his claims .
1 Timothy 5:8
But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.
2 Thessalonians 3:10
For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either.
1 Timothy 5:18
For the Scripture says, “YOU SHALL NOT MUZZLE THE OX WHILE HE IS THRESHING,” and “The laborer is worthy of his wages.
I'll tell you EXACTLY where to start: The absolutely AGGRESSIVE hypocracy of uttering those words in between checking the status of your 50-million-dollar personal net worth.
I think I’ll go to Wiki and attempt to include the following at the MM page.
Michael Moore (American Film-maker) - Solid credibility in the fields of
- Political Science
- Comparative Theology
I’ll get back to you with the ^nanosecond^ timing of it being pulled by the mods. It may disappear as I’m typing it in!
Poor people have to eat too!
Exactly! I ask the question: “How would he know”?
The Communist Party USA (CPUSA):
"We are a party of unity in action. We are an integral part of every struggle and movement for change to eliminate poverty and joblessness, against racism and for full equality. We are participants, initiators and leaders of every movement to make life better now and much better in a socialist future." Yeah, so they supported an oppressive dictator, like the Repubs and Democrats haven't? The CP is still around, has apologized for that whole Stalin thing, and has a quickly growing youth section.

Michael Moore (quote), from his website, April 14, 2004...
"The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win. Get it, Mr. Bush?"
[actual quote from Michael Moore (2004). It still appears on his website]
From Monday, April 21st, 2008...
My Vote's for Obama (if I could vote) ...by Michael Moore
I don't get to vote for President this primary season. I live in Michigan. The party leaders (both here and in D.C.) couldn't get their act together, and thus our votes will not be counted.
So, if you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor? Will you please cast my vote -- and yours -- on Tuesday for Senator Barack Obama?
The parable about the talents. (On phone so can’t expound)
Before the socialist took over our government, poverty in this nation was not stagnant. Millions of emigrants came to this nation and most would be considered poor. If they remained where they came from, they would also have remained poor. The difference was this nation rewarded hard work. Those that worked hard, learned our ways, prospered.
The unfairness we have today is that the government is penalizing (and making it difficult) for someone to work their way out of poverty.
In fact with all the welfare programs they are taking the incentive away from people.
Life is not fair, it should not be the governments role to attempt to make it so.
Straight from Jesus’ words, the parable of the talents is an endorsement of capitalism,
using capital to increase wealth.
Capitalism Un-Christian.Must be why Hollywood loves it,they love anything Un-Christian.
Jesus (Matthew 25:14) tells a parable of a ruler who went into a far country. Before he left he gave his three servants a certain ammount of cash with orders to “Occupy, till I come”.
When he returned one servant had gained by honest labor a double ammount more than what he received.
The second had doubled his by the same method.
The third hid his in the ground and when the ruler returned he found NO GAIN from his investment.
The ruler is upset even chewing out the worthless servant for not giving his money to the exchange bankers that gain by usery could be had.
That’s Jesus, the commie. Yeah, sure.
Then James 4:13 mentions how one says ...”Today or tomorrow we will go into such a city, and continue there for a year, and buy and sell, AND GET GAIN....If God Wills.”
