Um, no, my goods are my goods. I worked for them. If someone wants some, they’re going to have to work for it. That’s what the Tenth Commandment says: Don’t try to bogart your neighbor’s stuff. Go get your own.

Reason #3 why I am not a Protestant: Selective disregard for the Scriptures.

Your goods are not your goods. They belong to God:

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

That’s selective reading on your part.

The *earth* is the Lord’s.

The stuff I create and work for is *mine*. My wife is my wife, not your girlfriend. My horse (and my car, and my other stuff) are *mine*.

The Catholic Church and their “social justice” claptrap are peddling marxism swaddled in vestments and dandy clothes.
