Archbishop gets it Wong

I agree with his comments about payday lenders but bet he hadn't expected this

I remember years ago when Church of England was major slum landlord at time of Rachman

Re: Archbishop gets it Wong

I can't help but laugh at the continuing hypocrisy of religious organisations like the CofE:
Quote
The Church's Ethical Investment Advisory Group "recommends against investment" in companies which make more than 3% of their income from pornography, 10% from military products and services, or 25% from other industries such as gambling, alcohol and high interest rate lenders.

So it's ethically ok for this christian church to invest in porn, military products and services, gambling, alcohol and usury ... to a degree.

It isn't just the CofE that is like this Razer. It spreads from the top down. The royals ancestors were murderers and yet we're made to believe that they're wonderful (along with the rest of the world) when the simple fact is they're power hungry, blood thirsty murderer descendants. Then we have politicians who tell all of us how to live and struggle to support the state while wallowing in tax payer funded luxury lifestyles telling us that they want an honest anti-corrupt world while they're all in bed with big businesses, a military that insists we have a nuclear deterrent (but the rest of the world should not have as this makes THEM a risk) the IRA that did all sorts of nasties and then the queen shakes hands with the sinn fein leaders councils that pay their leaders huge amounts of money (plus expenses) while slashing staff and services.
None of this is right but we've been forced to accept it. Unfortunately when you look at these things for what they are the UK does look very corrupt. We just have to make the best of it somehow.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Well, we could have a revolution ... and set up another system to be corrupted.
