This is why the idea of a "Christian Right" is an oxymorn. You cannot be rooted in the precepts of capitalism and possessive individualism and be Christian at once. This is why Jesus threw the moneychangers from the temple. There is confusion in this world; a notion that because those on the left do not genuflect in medieval fashion before icons and abstractions they are less Christian. But only a politics of community and true compassion that leaves us dependent upon one another can save us from one another.
