Exactly – our religion has become Capitalism, our houses of worship are financial institutions and our commandments have been reduced to (1) THOU SHALT MAKE A PROFIT AT ANY COST

In the words that are attributed directly to Jesus — the three things that he most denounced — were hypocrisy, deceit and Mammon (AKA the material world and wealth). That pretty much describes the GOP and most of the Dem Party, as well as American culture in general. I laugh out loud whenever someone describes this as a Christian nation — it’s anything but. here are two of my favorite quotes on the suject:

“No man is a Christian who cheats his fellows, perverts the truth, or speaks of a ‘clean bomb,’ yet he will be the first to make public his faith in God.”
— Marya Mannes in 1956.

“Mammon, n.: The god of the world’s leading religion.”
– Ambrose Bierce
