honest theivery

Rev. Tim Jone affirms honest thievery

A priest in northern England recently told his congregation that stealing is sometimes acceptable and even justifiable. Yes. Shoplifting, for example, is ok for desperate people as long as they do it at large national chain stores [knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices] rather than small family businesses. There are also other limitations. If you steal don’t be greedy–take only what you need. ie – steal with integrity!

What a wonderful Christmas message. Unfortunately, some less spiritually enlightened individuals, including North Yorkshire Police, have taken his remarks in entirely the wrong way, assuming that by advising people in need to shoplift he was in some way encouraging holiday thievery.

Ya think?

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
