    I do not believe in wealth redistribution...
    There’s an unacknowledged assumption buried in this statement: that the current distribution of wealth is entirely right and proper; that the very wealthy are that way because they fairly earned everything they have. In Rick Warren’s world there must be no such thing as the raw exercise of power, people are never exploited, and everyone earns the just rewards from their labors. In other words: a fantasy world.

    In reality, Warren is just another right-wing huckster pimping for Free Market Jesus.

      bargain for better wages, thus "redistributing wealth" downward, Warrens' RW buddies (if not Warren himself) are out screaming bloody murder and socialism.

      To them, fairness is what's fair to THEM.
