See Exeter Cathedral has driven Occupy, the global movement against inequality and corporate greed, off the Cathedral Green. It gave protesters until tomorrow to leave or face legal action. Occupy have started moving their tents and belongings and are going to restart their camp North of Exeter. Well done Occupy! The Cathedral only offered them a stall as a presence on the green. You can't relegate an issue of this global importance to a stall. It just goes to show how out of touch the cathedral is with both reality and the Bible's teachings about rich and poor.

    Occupy Exeter Cathedral?
    Perhaps we should remind them that no man can serve two masters, you cannot serve God and Wealth (e.g. bankers charging interest on fiat money they create out of nothing). Time to drive out the money-changers from the temple?

    Occupy may have been evicted from their London camp today but as they say 'this is not the beginning of the end it is the end of the beginning'. The cause will win eventually, just as the Suffragettes won the vote for women, because their cause is just and just what this country needs. You cannot have people at the top of corporations on 20x incomes to those at the bottom (the state we were in as the banks starting going bust and the recession started) - it ties up too much money in dead assets like land and country houses instead of it flowing around the economy as it should to create jobs. When the 30s depression happened the top salaries were 17x those at the bottom - same scenario. Only around the 1960s when salaries were around 6x at the top was society fairer and it wall went down hill from there due to greed. Yes indeed money changers get out of the temple!

    Yes there is something shocking about the way Exeter Cathedral and St Pauls in London side with these bankers who are rich in nothing but debt, who separate risk from reward (they get the reward , the taxpayer bears the risk) and are using their political influence behind the scenes to destroy the social progress we have gradually made since welfare reforms were started in 1906!
    After the last war we arrived at a social compact to fight ignorance, poverty, unemployment, disease, idleness and homelessness together: They are now destroying that, wrecking our charter for social peace; and if they can they will replace elected government by bank nominees as they have done in Greece and Italy. No wonder the churches are empty and the prisons full! As Christ-lovers they were told it is harder for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. But today they are on the side the butter's thick.
