Oppressing the poor in order to enrich oneself, and giving to the rich, will lead only to loss.
- Proverbs 22:16-16
Wow, can you believe this was written THOUSANDS of years ago? Hmmm....

(This Scripture was quoted on the God's Politics blog, which has great contributors like Jim Wallis and Brian McLaren.)

I wish we could convince CitiFinancial and other victimize-the-poor corporations of this wisdom.

We read (and then watched) Maxed Out this week. Ugh. I had no idea the credit industry was SOOOOO exploitative. I mean, I knew it was innately exploitative, but it's truly horrific.

Thanks for your comment on Baby Toolkit and your link to Boob Wars. I suspect we have a lot in common. I too knitted until my baby arrived and now just experience yarn lust.

Your current reading looks fascinating.

We're also social justice oriented UCC members.

I look forward to reading your blog more!
