Excuse-makers for this beloved sin that cries out to heaven for vengeance are legion. That’s because the four sins that cry out to heaven for vengeance got whittled down to 1) murder of innocents who aren’t in the way of Republican access to power and 2) sodomy. Oppression of the poor (what does that even *mean*?) and defrauding workers of their just wages are hopelessly vague and out of touch with current views on economics common among the Best and Brightest, who often moan that if Wal-Mart paid its employees a living wage, it would be the end of the world. Actually, I think we could all cope with an extra cent for mac and cheese.
