Umm… this must be an example of a church teaching morality:
Father Tim Jones, a 41-year-old clergyman at St. Lawrence Church in York, England, said that shoplifting — rather than prostitution or burglary — is sometimes the best option for poor people struggling to make ends meet…
Because burglary is very different from shoplifting?
At least the priest set limits:
“I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses — knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices,” he continued.
See? It’s all good now. Steal from Walmart. Just like Jesus would have done.
