You have probably heard about the All Saints church in Pasadena that is being investigated by the IRS for being too political because of a sermon on Oct.31, 2004. The sermon is an imagined debate between George W. Bush, John Kerry, and Jesus.
I am reading it and came across this:
Quote:
Jesus would say with absolute clarity to Senator Kerry and President Bush: "There is something decadent about a Nation that denies human solidarity, that's more interested in private wealth than public wealth. There is something corrupting about the assumption that a few have the right to good health, dignified jobs, fine education and decent housing -- while others live in misery."

I think maybe we can make something of this meme that it is decadent to be more interested in private wealth than public wealth. It needs a two-word shorthand version.
