Subject: RE: BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street)
I can't help thinking the movement is selling itself short by not adding a spiritual dimension. After all it was Christ that drove the moneylenders from the temple. And why should God in America confine himself to radio con artists and anadvocating Anti Abortion?
It was really the probity and decency of working class intellectuals from the chapel infested Welsh valleys that gave Britain its National Health service. It is a Christian duty to care for the poor and the ill, and dying. You would gain so much in support if you could get it over to Christians that it was a moral duty to support you.
