Profiteer or Human Person

Written by Bishop Andrew Gentry

I have decided that there are essentially two types of people. There is the profiteer and the human person. The profiteer whose god is money and whose religion is the acquisition of wealth, whose religious obligation is the maintenance of wealth and its gospel is profit is evidenced by the Tea Party Republicans here in the US and its various incarnations across the Pond. Its high priests are marketeers and its hierarchy multi-national corporations. It will offer as sacrifice on its altar of greed everything from human flesh and life to the very air we breathe and water we drink. It will prostitute any principle of representative government, any catechism , any science and any art form. It will devour itself and the rest of us with it. Human persons are the absolute opposite. People over profit is the mantra and respect for all creation the dogma. Responsibility to neighbor is the duty and peace the goal. The spiritual is ever lasting and imminent. Which one do you fit into? your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.
