: P.S. I'll apologise to the secularists but I wont apologise for moralising.


Beautiful post. Absolutely No apology is required for me (a secularist).

The passage:

['Come, blessed of my Father! Take possession of the kingdom?For I was
hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you welcomed me into your home; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me. I was in prison and you came to see me.']

...can be regarded metraphrically in which the "kingdom" is our living environment.

I personally feel closer to our "christian" (insert nearly any faith) socialists than many so-called atheist socialists (even though I happen to be one).

Incidentally - Father Roy Bourgeois will likely be arrested (again) in his annual protest against the School of the Americas (AKA School of the Assasins) on this November 19. The base of his messege may be spiritual - but the political relevance may be seen here.
