Where Would Jesus be Born Today?

This is one of Time Magazine's pictures of the year. The homeless sleep in a tent city outside Seattle. Such dynamics are playing out across the USA and our world (Read Nigerian Jesuit's Uwem Akpan's Say You're One of Them).

All those who argue against the redistribution of wealth (even when the top 1% have more than the bottom 95%) should know that heaven is a place where wealth is distributed justly, for such is the reality of the love of God. Catholic Social Teaching calls for the just distribution of goods, not the insane inequality that see things like the grotesque paying of $700,000 for the average bonus for those who "work" (what exactly do they do that is worth all that?) at Goldman Sachs.

Those who want to maintain systems of inequality, socially sinful systems fueled by the celebration and worship of the idol greed, a false God who demands the sacrifice of our brothers and sisters (e.g., the unemployed, those whose homes are "under water," those whose lives are ruined by our wars, those whose lands are destroyed by the first world's pollution of our planet) will not want to enter the Kingdom of God. They will be free to choose a place where the few hoard all against the hopes and prayers of the many. That place will be hell.

Know that Jesus comes to save us from our idolatrous enslavement to an unjust and insane corporate capitalism. Join Jesus' redistribution program where "all will give according to their abilities and take according to their needs," the communistic system that characterizes family life. Only a system based on love of one another can make a world wherein we can live forever in peace and justice and love. - Rick

I trade in the forex market. What I like about is I can buy and sell any currency; therefore I can make money in a bull or bear market. I would like to know if it is possible for me to buy and sell crude oil etc in a similar way?

Rick,
I wanted to post a student review of your book that captures why I recommend it to friends and students alike:
When our class was first given the assignment to read and blog about A Faith that Frees, I was dreading the task. Throughout my school career I have rarely come across an assigned book that I actually enjoyed. I was especially hesitant when I realized the topic was Catholicism. I immediately shut down, and thought of how awful this two hundred page book was going to be. However, after reading this book I regret making any preconceived notions about its contents. In fact, I will be the first to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would suggest it to others. It was extremely informative, yet not overbearing. Father Malloy writes in a way that can be easily understood no matter what your religious orientation might be. His words captivate the reader by inviting them to take a step back and truly comprehend the world we live in. After reading this book, my mind was opened up to numerous outlooks on life.
