Paving the Road to Hell

To reiterate Serge's matter-of-fact observation, many religious folk don't understand economics.

Rather than a job at a market rate how about no job at all or more people on the dole (the money for which comes from...)? The usual suspects seem to be out in force for this: Modernist RCs (whose average age is at least 60ish by now), self-hating Jews (Jews historically act economically conservative, which is why they made it big time, but vote left) and most of all (as Chris Johnson says) the National Council of Churches People Don’t Go to Any More.

This makes me wish the works of the Salamanca Theologians were required reading in all major seminaries, especially their reflections on economics.
