George Lansbury, Christ and Justice
Christian and former Labour Party leader George Lansbury offers these words about Christ. I offer them as something for people of faith to contemplate at a time in which those who have never sold a prime mortgage or dealt in derivatives etc pay the price for those who have been seduced into such gambling with perilous results for the world economy. Many of these still live in luxury whilst in Britain alone we have a grwoing unemployment problem with already one million young people out of work. And all the time a government that threatens them with clampdown after clampdown. Come back George! We need you!
Keep in mind the fact that the Son of Man, the Christ who lived and was executed by the government of His day, was a great leader, and leader of the common people. It was his great message of Love and Brotherhood which brought him to his death. He knew the poor of the earth were oppressed by the rich and wealthy, and in scathing terms denounced the money changers and all those who defiled the Temple and brought suffering to starving humanity.
