But she said: “I cannot condone inciting anyone to commit a criminal offence. Shoplifting is a crime against the whole local community and society.” Father Jones, a married father of two, hit the headlines in May 2008 when he protested against a store stocking Playboy stationery aimed at youngsters.

Honestly if parishioners at his church are falling on times why not organize an event to raise money to help them. A bake sale or a food drive, or something. There are MORE options available to them than simply "Shoplift the things you need from big stores". Furthermore and quiet honestly, people have gotten their priorities between wants and needs messed up.
