Are you feeling economically desperate and vulnerable? Shoplifting is an option to consider according to one priest:
Father Jones told the congregation: ‘My advice, as a Christian priest, is to shoplift. I do not offer such advice because I think that stealing is a good thing, or because I think it is harmless, for it is neither.
‘I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses, knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices.
This is a perfect example of how the religious can project anything they like onto their God:
The married father-of-two insisted his unusual advice did not break the Bible commandment ‘Thou shalt not steal’ – because God’s love for the poor outweighs his love for the rich.
See The “will of God” is whatever a believer wants it to be for more information
Note also that he offers no advice for what people should do once they get arrested for shoplifting. Strangely, society will offer no exemptions to the law, even though “God’s love for the poor outweighs his love for the rich.”
If God is so loving, why doesn’t he actually do something to help the poor?
