Do property rights not go directly against the teachings of the bible?
That materialism is a path away from god? Yet here in america the religoius right strongly supports materialism over all things... including god. Is that blasphemy? Mammon isn't god is he?
One of the commandments is not to covet the things of others, yet that's the basis for our whole economic system. Someone else gets something cool, you get one.
Yeah, Jesus wasn't an economist, but if he was I highly doubt he'd approve of the US economic system. I just find it interesting that the battle cry of the group who supports Jesus is "Don't let the poor people take our stuff!!"
I'm not condemning capitalism or property rights, I just think Jesus probably would.
