|Gordon Gekko, Disciple of Mammon|
OK. Let’s say (just for fun) that we’ve tossed Christ and His Church into the dustbin of history. Too many rules and regulations, see? Too much guilt and that unpalatable need to be responsible, etc.
We’re now “all-in” on worshiping the god named Mammon. We love Mammon and will always do his bidding willingly.
Would it come as a surprise to you to learn that we are about as faithful to our new god as we were to our former God (with the capital “G”)?
Would you be shocked to learn that we lie to Mammon? That we disrespect Mammon? Or that we try to fool Mammon the way we used to try and fool the God of Mercy? We even use current taxpayer money to support an organization that kills future taxpayers (who happen to also be creators of future Mammon baksheesh), all the while building social programs that can’t be funded without them. Genius you say?
I’ll be sticking with my old religion (thanks, but see title of this blog) because frankly, Mammon is going to be pissed!
