I wont knock those who not only preach/teach the "prosperity gospel" but spread around the wealth.There is a mini-mega church on Lehigh Ave in Philly. Now, Im not defending the religion and all that, but this church does hire from a predominately black neighborhood. They have outreach services in the community to aid the elderly and working poor, financial and home renovation services, offer classes and free meals.
yes, the pastor is a little extravagant, but they are probably the only entity that hires us...from the community....for like 50 blocks!
Naw, pastor aint got a jet, probably lives in the burbs, I dont know.
But they are doing something.
They should've used that money to help out the poor before even thinking about buying private jets.
So Nigeria is not worth saving?
Did I ever say they weren't helping the poor?Are you sure that they aren't also helping the poor? The Article only said that
they bought jets.. and it bunched them all together based purely on nationality.
It didn't really speak to whatever else they have done/are doing...
It was a bad posting day for me yesterday. Let's pretend it didn't happen.not sure what my comment has to do with his.. my comment was about
private air travel versus public air travel.. nothing to do with saving Nigeria..
but while we're talking.. saving Nigeria from what and for what.. ? And is
it really a money thing?.. or is it a power thing.. ? Poor people can't eat
money.. if we really are talking about lasting solutions, I think we have to
realize that they will not be realized through an exploitive economic system..
it's like trying to put out a fire with fire.. Billionaire's amass their billions through
exploitation.. direct or indirect.. why then would an exploiter give a sh** about
the exploited.? except maybe to temporarily ease his conscience or to
maintain his golden goose..
