Capitalism, A Love Story
OK, it's a bit simplistic (our alternatives are not "democracy" or "capitalism") but Michael Moore's latest movie is worth seeing and thought-provoking. It happens when I saw it over the weekend I was at the height of my latest rant about the Catholic church and its problems with pedophilia, secrecy, gender, sexuality...and a lot of other stuff. (Isn't it obvious the pope should resign?) So it caught me off guard to see the Catholic priests in this movie--men who help laid off workers, identify with the poor, and talk passionately about social justice. In fact, Michael Moore confesses that he once wanted to be a priest himself, and he's pretty clearly a believer--at least in the moral message of Christianity--and a church member. Moore needs to do a documentary on religion--wouldn't that be interesting?
