My , SOYMB , can only look on in wonder , at the religious humbug at this time of year and the acrobatics of the Godly. Did i say Godly ?
Research found that one in six clergy of the Dutch Protestant church were either not sure about or did not believe in the existence of God.
An official of the Protestant Church said "The church is not an appropriate place for an ordained minister to say they do not believe in God"
SOYMB is onlyu too aware that the Ten Commandments is ignored by the Church. How else can we have slaughter of war be condoned by the churches?
But surely not "Thou shalt not steal"
A priest from North Yorkshire has advised his congregation to shoplift if they find themselves in hard times. Father Tim Jones, the parish priest of St Lawrence and St Hilda in York, said people should steal from big chains rather than small businesses.
"We create a situation which leaves some people little option but crime."
Sad to say this "noble" servant of God says little about the legalised robbery perpetrated by the capitalist class on the working class .Capitalism is a social relationship dependent upon wage labour and commodity exchange where profit is derived from capital's theft of unpaid labour.
He remains silent upon the 95% of statutory crime which is property-related. (and the great bulk of the residual 5% ie violence against the person and sexual offences can be attributed to the everyday stresses and alienations that are part and parcel of our existence in capitalist society.)
