Bishop Gene Robinson grapples with the 99 percent movement


One of my favorite people tries to figure out what the Occupy phenomenon is all about.

The pervasive theme is the poor crying out for regress of injustice! … People are shocked and saying so about how off track we have become. …

[Religious people] have to be careful not to try to coopt this movement. When you see a parade it's easy to try to get out in front of it. We have to be humble.

… Are we going to live in a world where the common good is a value we hold? … We have to figure out what is wrong with the system that is causing people to be drowning. … We need to take a good long and hard look at the way we set up our society …

Worth watching all of it.
