  •  Economic issues ARE moral issues (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    This is the argument I think we really need to be making.  Religion is not just about sex, sex, and what happens after sex.  We need to get it through people's heads that most of what Jesus and the prophets have to talk about ARE economic issues and other issues of justice and equality.  We hear all the time about "respect for life" from the Catholic church but we never hear that the "seamless garment of life" includes opposition to the death penalty and a call to end unjust wars of aggression and choice.
