Occupy Wall Street Building on Sand

One of the most important teachings of The Church is that God is the great equalizer.

Sadly, the folks protesting their stinky little socks off in New York and other major cities around the country are doing nothing at all to further their cause.

The only thing they’re succeeding in doing is costing municipalities hundreds, thousands and in some case millions of dollars in overtime for the police officers trying to keep them in line.

In today’s Liturgy The Church teaches us a few things about how and when the rich and poor will be at a level playing field.

It has nothing to do with whining either.

Check this out from Isaiah 26:

3 You will keep in perfect peace
   those whose minds are steadfast,
   because they trust in you.
4 Trust in the LORD forever,
   for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.
5 He humbles those who dwell on high,
   he lays the lofty city low;
he levels it to the ground
   and casts it down to the dust.
6 Feet trample it down—
   the feet of the oppressed,
   the footsteps of the poor.

The best thing any of us can do, if we feel there is inequity, is to keep our minds steadfast, trusting in the Lord.

In the end, those who gathered unfairly will be trampled.

I can even say, while holding my nose a bit, I admire the Occupiers diligence.

The problem is this–they should be on their knees, praying patiently for equity.

By doing so, they’d give off an aroma of Spirit filled goodness.

Instead–they’re just stinking up the joint.
