Lisa Sharon Harper: 'Paul Ryan's Plan Breaks My Heart'

Date: August 9, 2012

Is Paul Ryan engaged in the active participation of idle worship? Is the Paul Ryan plan "cheating on God?" Are we married to an ideology instead of married to God?

I recently asked Lisa Sharon Harper, Sojourners Director of Mobilizing and founding executive director of New York Faith & Justice, what broke here heart. Her answer? The Paul Ryan Plan.

Paul Ryan is all business. Just business.

I'm all for business, I own one, but "the market" is not righteous. No limits, profit-driven activity falls short Kingdom imagination-wise, needing have-nots and under abundance to drive it's model.
