A Message to the Greedy and Selfish of the 1%, their Stooges and Lackeys, including the Tea and (new) Republican Parties from the Prophet Amos

Hear this, you that trample on the needy,   and bring to ruin the poor of the land,
saying, ‘When will the new moon be over   so that we may sell grain;and the sabbath,   so that we may offer wheat for sale?We will make the ephah small and the shekel great,   and practise deceit with false balances,
buying the poor for silver   and the needy for a pair of sandals,   and selling the sweepings of the wheat.’
  The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob:Surely I will never forget any of their deeds.

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. ‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. ‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Did you hear him say "Blessed are the greedy?"
Or, "Blessed are the selfish?"
Or, "Blessed are they who serve the 1%?"
I didn't.

Let anyone with ears to hear listen!

  2. Excellent words for justice, Sir!

  3. I truly believe there is only one sin: selfishness. Every one of the world's ills springs from that one common source.
