Dissident Cleric's Controversial Remarks Pretty Good, Actually

To all a good night

“My advice does not contradict the Bible’s eighth commandment because God’s love for the poor and despised outweighs the property rights of the rich. Let my words not be misrepresented as a simplistic call for people to shoplift. The observation that shoplifting is the best option that some people are left with is a grim indictment of who we are. Rather, this is a call for our society no longer to treat its most vulnerable people with indifference and contempt.”
-Father Tim Jones, a vicar from Yorkshire, England, who delivered a sermon on Sunday in which he suggested that those in desperate need steal from large chain stores rather than resort to prostitution or robbery.
