Priest Advocates Shoplifting

Not even priests are immune from the moral derangement caused by moonbattery. Consider Father Tim Jones of St. Lawrence Church in York, England, who proclaimed during a Sunday sermon:

My advice as a Christian priest is to shoplift. … I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses — knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices. … My advice does not contradict the Bible’s eighth commandment because God’s love for the poor and despised outweighs the property rights of the rich.

As for the tenth commandment, I doubt Jones read that far.

Liberal decay won’t have to advance much further before we hear moral authorities declaring that killing people who own property you want to steal doesn’t contradict the sixth commandment, because God’s love for the lazy and shiftless outweighs blah blah blah.

If we had not forgotten that it is wrong to steal, we would not be faced today with a kleptocratic government so grotesquely massive that it threatens to crush society and reduce both Britain and the USA to 1980s Albania.

I wonder if Jones would mind if thieves looted his church.
