Where I think the Religious Left is more Biblical

I'm not going to reproduce the whole thing here, but this post I did deals with some issues that may relate to American Creation's purpose.


... Arguably Christianity had to "find" a way to reconcile itself with usury in order to usher in the modern world of material comfort. Arguably whenever Bible believers use their credit card, get paid interest on a cash bond or in a bank, they do a Thomas Jefferson and cut out those verses of the Bible which suggest it's sin. (Or do Bible believers repeatedly confess this as a sin?)

Many thanks for the link. I suspected that's where Aquinas came down.
