Threading the needle

Veal Pen Preachers and Conservative Idolatry of Teh Market is an Ugly Combination

On firedoglake, a discussion of the clarity of the biblical jesus' teachings on wealth, debt, poverty.  Turns out that the prince of peace is no fan of mega millionaires.  Of course, this should be obvious to anybody who has actually heard or read the gospels.

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.

There's no ambiguity there.
