OWS Is Not All Criminals & Thugs - Bishop Leads OWS Occupation!

Thank God (figuratively) that someone from the clergy has finally stepped up and said enough is enough!

It is not Christian (nor Muslim Nor most other organized religions) to piss on the poor and anoint the rich our kings and saviours.

Aren't the "meek" suppose to inherit the Earth?

Here's retired Bishop/Occupy Wall Streeter George Packard ascending a ladder that takes him not to a higher spiritual level but to a vacant patch of land owned by Trinity Church. Occupiers want to convert Trinity's property into their next Zuccotti-like encampment—a plan that the church opposes because cleanliness is next to godliness, with emptiness not far behind.

According to the New York Post, Packard ended up getting arrested along with a few dozen other OWS protesters. He wasn't the only clergyman to jump the fence, but he was definitely the most fashionably dressed.


I'll leave you to it, but I would like to point out that the tactic of occupying public spaces has overthrown three dictators, completely altered the social and political reality of the Middle East, and, state-side, completely changed the national narrative re: jobs and wealth. If that is failure, what exactly constitutes success?

Few men desire liberty; most men wish only for a just master. - Sallust, Roman historian, c. 40 B.C.
