Poll: Americans see Christianity, capitalism clash
A new poll released Thursday found that more Americans (44 %) see the free market system at odds with Christian values than those who don't (36 %), whether they are white evangelicals, mainline Protestants, Catholics or minority Christians.

But in other demographic breakdowns, several categories lean the other way: Republicans and Tea Party members, college graduates and members of high-income households view the systems as more compatible than not.

The poll, conducted by Public Religion Research Institute in partnership with Religion News Service, found that although conservative Christians and evangelicals tend to want their clergy to speak out on issues like abortion and homosexuality, they also tend to hold left-of-center views on some economic issues. ...

Yep, indeed Christian values and morales will clash with capitalist ideals in many cases. The Bible doesn't say you're supposed to profit all you can at the expense and oppression of others.

Correct Rufus! Remember the bailouts were proposed to solve the problem (wink, wink) of the the derivitive market.

Mortgages were used as a trading commodity and now with foreclosures (which are the result), homeowners are taking the banks to court to find out that the banks do not have paperwork or the paperwork has been falsified, because the loans were traded out on an international market.

This was done without the permission or knowledge of the homeowners. Some homeowners in court have paid off their loans, and still being told someone else owns the house.

You can call it what you want. But that is not a free market.

Who runs the money system? If you cannot answer that simple question, how can you (anyone) say that you know what the "name" of this kind of system is?

A better poll would be "what kind of economic system do we currently have?" I have noticed that polls are written with assumptions into them that often perpetuates an idea that simply isn't true.

The Reaps will tell you to make the corp bigger. The Demmies will tell you to make the gov bigger.

Behind the scenes the two have become one. If you put a monkey in a suit, he's still a monkey.

""The idea that we are autonomous individuals competing for limited resources without concern for the welfare of others is a philosophy that is totally alien to the Bible, and in my view, antithetical to genuine Christianity.""

Sounds like a good socialist!!

Having a free market does not prevent the care of the poor. Look at Britain's welfare system which is strangling the community there and is an excuse for Labour/socialists to increase taxation to ludicrous levels.
Care for the poor comes from the heart - Not from organised bureaucracy.

Dictionaries::-
Free market 
an economic system in which prices and wages are determined by unrestricted competition between businesses, without government regulation or fear of monopolies.

Free market
A market that is not interfered with by government constraints on transactions. Most would say, however, that a market that is subject to a modest and transparent tax can still be considered free.

Whatever the current American system of economics is, free market it is not.

Free markets do not include governments bailing out corporations that are "too big too fail" with tax payer money. This is what Mussolini referred to as Corporatism, also known as Fascism.

1 Timothy 6
10 For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith, and pierced themselves with many a pang.
11 But flee from these things, you man of God; and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness.---NASB

"The poll...found...conservative Christians and evangelicals tend to want their clergy to speak out on issues like abortion and homosexuality, they also tend to hold left-of-center views on some economic issues."

Maybe so, but minority Christians DON'T. When Christ warned the seven Church's there was a repetition of this phraseology "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches;" Rev.2:7,11,,17,29; and Rev. 3:6,13,22.

The angels or ministers of the churches are the ones addressed in each case. Apparently they were on the same level as their brethren. No clergy and laity here. It was necessary that all had ears to hear God. First those to whom the people were entrusted, the over-seers of the Lord's heritage would need to be hearing from the Great Shepherd of the Sheep; as to what he wanted to be said. The congregation of minority Christian's want their pastor/teacher to be hearing from God so that they will hear from Him too. Those under Christ's authority with ears to hear must hear from Christ because won't follow the voice of a stranger.
Who care what dumb sheep want to hear. We best care that God is silent. FEAR!

Christ Himself had to pay a HUGE price for the sins of His people. Had He not done so, we'd all end up in Hell. Isn't that basically the same as capitalism--which fundamentally involves the making of an exchange? What "clash" are they talking about? I don't see any clash at all.
