: : I'm sure Frenchy's dad is doing fine -- how are his employees?

: Is this a thinly veiled criticism of Frenchy's dad? Would Frenchy's dad be morally superior if he didnt have the motivation and ability to build houses then? Would 'we' have liked him more if he simply fell into the bottom rung of employment and did nothing more like every good victim of 'capitalist oppression' should?

: His employees would not have been employed if he wasnt there - so would they have been better off? Guesswork really isnt it.

: Seems a peculiar view.

Frenchy's dad, may he rest in peace, is irrelevant to this argument and you know that. I'm sure he was a fine person. I didn't bring him up; Frenchy did. He is a total non sequitur in thsi thread, thich involves the fact that liberation theology is being called 'dopey', apparently without any shreds of evidnce. That is the real question Gee. What do you think about liberation theology? I'm really surprised that you got led down the blind alley of talking about Frenchy's dad; it's a cheap ad hominem.
