    Our world is one of terrible contradictions. Plenty of food, but one billion people go hungry. Lavish lifestyles for a few, but poverty for too many others. Huge advances in medicine while mothers die every day in childbirth, and children die every day from drinking dirty water. Billions spent on weapons to kill people instead of keeping them safe.

    What all those people need is Capitalism not reliance on other people's money.

    And at what moment since the fall of Adam has this not been the case?

    Strange, but then perhaps not, you left out the millions of unborn children that are slaughtered by the followers of Baal!

    Good point. How is it treating our fellow man well when we support organizations that slaughter unborn children?

    The religious left and political left in this country are the root cause of much of the suffering. For example, those two groups (often one and the same) do not even want Fundamentalists and Evangelicals to have a message board on the internet. The Democrat Party has destroyed the US domestic economy with hideous debts and crony contracts for green stuff. Internationally, the Democrats have allowed their hatred of Jews to give the atom bomb to Iran and allow Islam to promote a worldwide jihad with terror in every corner of the world. Domestically, the Democrats are still very rich--afterall they used to own plantations but they are not known for personally being charitable or even kind. The religious left constantly preaches higher criticism and the gospel of the full belly but their own bellies are the fattest around. At this moment, the Democrats are lying to the Iranians by telling them that the GOP opposes a diplomatic settlement. The Democrats tell lie after lie and then berate people for not believing them. Right now even the French have had enough of Democrat lies about Iran and the atomic bomb. The Democrats have lowered American prestige abroad to an all-time low. So the religious left and the Democrats should start preaching to themselves.
