Economic Reflections of Lent – 2013

World Vision produced a booklet which contains one entry for each day in Lent and Easter. I was interested to read the entry for Day 23 – 11th March. A lot of ‘positive’ economic statements.

* I think that sex and economics are always related.
* Violent economic structures and sexual violence are always found together.
* Oppressing the most vulnerable poor will always be coupled with sexual oppression.
* Unrestrained economic greed and insatiable sexual desire are always in the same bed.
* An ecologically rapacious economy is at the heart of a culture of rape.
* Where avarice and greed rule the economy, sexual commodification will rule the bedroom.
* Idolatrous economies will always prey on the young. Always.
