The Rev. Canon Simon Mein writes with all the grace of someone who really does understand how to concoct a sentence in English and an argument rich in exploratory possibilities. He undertakes rather large issues and in his latest essay CAPITALISM UNCOVERED he works over the American peculiarity that makes capitalism of all the "isms" a Christian virtue. He asks, " Is there anything that theology and the history of Christianity can teach this nation which proudly claims to be “One…under God”?"
Simon makes the argument that we have done very little regarding a closer look at Capitalism because it is taken for granted and considered part of the "background", and because we do not critique capitalism sufficiently Christians are mostly unprepared to argue for the limitations that must be placed on capitalism if there is to be any justice at all for the poor.
Now would be a good time. It's summer and a good dose of theological exploration is just the ticket on a warm evening.
