Bernie invited to Vatican by Pope. "The Idolatry of Money...The Worship of Money"




This reminds me of something that Sister Megan Rice said about Idolatry of Money (and Weapons):

Its idolatry, putting trust in weapons. And weapons are made like gods. Weapons are always false gods because they make money. Its profiteering.

---Sister Megan Rice---

1. Must you make everything about guns?

Your obsession with guns and violence is upsetting.

3. You are free to support the Idolatry of Nuclear Weapons if Sister Megan Rice's comment upsets you.

 

Your obsession with guns and violence is upsetting.


She's just telling you that you are worshiping a False God by doing so, that's all.

4. What upsets me is your infatuation with guns and weapons.

You led with Sanders being invited to the Vatican to speak about social justice, then tacked on a completely unrelated quote about your obsession.

I worship no one and nothing - and Skinner's gift of amnesty is the only reason you are able to post on DU right now, so I suggest you tread lightly with your insults and attacks.

5. If discussions of Idolatry upset you, then you are free not to respond.

11. If my calculations are correct, professor, he's also free to respond.

Been a long time since you audited a philosophy course, or are you feeling especially neutral today?

You faitheists are all the same.

12. Oh? You're calling Bernie Sanders a panderer?

 

One issue positions make lousy politics. You should watch that clip again to hear what he actually said.
