Quote of the Day

“Indeed, the supposed Christian revival of today has given something very like unlimited moral authority to money, though Jesus did say (and I think a literal interpretation is appropriate here if anywhere) , “Woe to you who are rich!” (Luke 6:24). If this seems radical, dangerous, unfair, un-American, then those who make such criticisms should at least have the candor to acknowledge that their quarrel is with Jesus.” – Marilynne Robinson from her essay, "Onward, Christian Liberals" from The American Scholar as reprinted in The Best American Essays 2007.
