Faith, Money & Politics in America

A highly recommended read today (besides the Barbara Ehrenreich op-ed) is Bill Moyer's Democracy in Balance.
THIS IS A TIME of testing - for people of faith and for people who believe in democracy. How do we nurture the healing side of religion over the killing side? How do we protect the soul of democracy against the contagion of a triumphalist theology in the service of an imperial state? At stake is America's role in the world. At stake is the very character of the American Experiment - whether"we, the people" is the political incarnation of a spiritual truth - one nation, indivisible - or a stupendous fraud.
