Have you finished all of your holiday shopLIFTING? Priest in UK says it's okay!

"Father Tim Jones, 41, broke off from his traditional annual sermon yesterday to tell his flock that stealing from large chains is sometimes the best option for vulnerable people.

It is far better for people desperate during the recession to shoplift than turn to 'prostitution, mugging or burglary', he said.

The married father-of-two insisted his unusual advice did not break the Bible commandment 'Thou shalt not steal' - because God's love for the poor outweighs his love for the rich."

Question: What would Jesus Do?!?!? LOL

  • God loves poor people more than he loves rich people? It's okay to steal from stores as long as their big? Lol.... Thank God (pun intended) I'm an Atheist.

  • Ok while this is really stupid - and I mean really really stupid - but I think what he was trying to say was if you're going to steal; do it from a 'box store' rather than your neighbor. ie: Wal-Mart can afford to lose a few cans of food. Not that they should run right out and start stealing

  • As usual, words are being twisted and taken out of context.
