Lent Day 5: Boldly sign the ash cross on money, for the sins of our economic system. For unbridled capitalism; for tax codes that privilege the rich; for laws that privilege corporations; for union busting and so called “right to work” legislation; for false-consciousness that causes many to support policies that are contrary to their the economic interests; for the myth of American exceptionalism, For the growing gap between the rich and poor; for rising CEO salaries while wages for workers remain flat, for corporate greed, for the highest rate of child poverty of any industrialized nation; for being the only industrialized nation not willing to fund universal healthcare. May we work for policies that allow for a more equitable economic system.
