You can't arrest me for shoplifting officer, God told me to do it....

Yorkshire priest Tim Jones has some strange views with regards that old rule "Thou shalt not steal"

“My advice, as a Christian priest, is to shoplift,” he told his congregation, according to a report in today's Times.

“I do not offer such advice because I think that stealing is a good thing, or because I think it is harmless, for it is neither.

“I would ask that they do not steal from small family businesses, but from large national businesses, knowing that the costs are ultimately passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher prices."

Fr Jones said even God might turn a blind eye. "My advice does not contradict the Bible’s Eighth Commandment because God’s love for the poor and despised outweighs the property rights of the rich," he went on.

But has he not stated that the costs will be passed on "to the rest of us in the form of higher prices.", also does he think this applies to downloading music from the internet?

It's just I happened to get some stuff off of Pirate Bay the other week and wish to make sure it's all fine with the chap upstairs...

I have some sympathy with Fr. Jones; our local Skank Community is as pervasive as anywhere else but we do not live in fear of domestic burglary, car-theft or muggings for gain; rather they seem to fund themselves by commercial shoptheft ( or "liftin'") for which they pay the occasional Civil Enforcement fine when caught.

Crime is high enough, we don't need the clergy encouraging it.
