GUEST,The Lamenting Whelk BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street) (31) RE: BS: The Meaning of OWS (Occupy Wall Street) 25 Oct 11

Well, the movement's moved beyond the USA, so it's global now and we have come together as ordinary people; there's a bigger picture here and it transcends any one country.

As for who represents Christianity, it's irrelevant and a separate matter. This is a movement against the corruption of our systems of government and the politicians, the power of big business and the rights of ordinary people. Any religious overtones of any kind is sidelining these issues. If this movement was co-opted by Christianity then what about the Muslims, aethists, buddhists, agnostics, pagans, countless native peoples etc etc etc? It would be profoundly arrogant to assume any one creed should be dominant. If you want a Christian voice start 'Christians for OWS' and come and join the collective voice of the people of the planet, together in our wonderous diversity.

It's a secular global movement, and should remain so.
