The answer is not as simple as supporting small businesses over Walmart. Instead, it is a call for all people of faith to live-out our long tradition of speaking up for people who are working harder and harder for less and less need a community on their side.

What was Jesus doing here on Earth? Well, my guess is He was trying to show us how to live. The whole "free will" part means it's up to us whether or not we choose to listen.

Would Jesus unfriend Judas on his way to appear before Pilate? Would Jesus already be unfriended by all his disciples and all those who once clamored to be on his profile?

Roman Catholic Priests are the surprising voices of clarity and conviction in Michael Moore's new film Capitalism: A Love Story. They aren't ambivalent -- they characterize capitalism as evil.
