Rev. Chris Hedges: Christmas, Charity, Anti-Empire and the Revolutionary Jesus + Transcript

21 Dec

 

Dandelion Salad Originally published Dec. 24, 2014 with Chris Hedges TheRealNews on Dec 24, 2014 Rev. Chris Hedges and Rev. David Bullock discuss the real meaning of Christmas with Paul Jay.

 

 

Chris Hedges: “…I think, [the] fundamental message of the gospel is anticapitalist, anti-imperialist. Remember when Jesus is taken to the desert by Satan and Satan offers him not only riches, but control of land, which is empire? And that is a condemnation. The Gospels are such a clear condemnation not just of the Roman Empire, but of empire.”

Message of the Day

And when we give each other Christmas gifts in His name, let us remember that He has given us the sun and the moon and the stars, and the earth with its forests and mountains and oceans–and all that lives and move upon them. He has given us all green things and everything that blossoms and bears fruit and all that we quarrel about and all that we have misused–and to save us from our foolishness, from all our sins, He came down to earth and gave us Himself.

― Sigrid Undset

“While it is true that people must liberate themselves from their servitude, it is also true that they must first free themselves from what has been made of them in the society in which they live” – We will never be Free while the Rich Rule Over Us
