From the article posted over in religion here:
Yorkshire vicar advises hard-pressed parishioners to shoplift
A Yorkshire vicar has now come up with an interesting new interpretation, advising the more hard-pressed of his parishioners to shoplift.
However they should only do it from big shops, says Father Jones, and it would probably be best if they did not take any more than they needed.
So we are constantly hearing, just today in other ?'s, in fact, about how much better the welfare state is in other countries in the UK. Is this an example of how much better it works in the UK? The clergy advising people to steal to get by?
The article says he considers it a better option than burglary or prostitution which the poor need to do anyway. Is that the "improvement" we need?

You are comparing apples to oranges. Religion vs welfare state
This says more about that church than anything else
