Church of England has up to £10m invested in

7 posts in this topic

The Church of England has invested up to £10m in one of the world's major arms firms, which supplies systems and technology for unmanned drones and jets to conflicts around the world. The discovery, on the eve of what is set to be the biggest day of protests against DSEi – the UK's leading arms fair – in Docklands, London, tomorrow, has led worshippers to accuse church leaders of profiting from conflict.

Oh come on, GE is involved in power generation, railway locomotive, aero engine manufacturing, all sorts of things, it's very simplistic just to call them an "Evil Arms Dealer" because they supply engines for, among others, military aircraft. Sorry, indie, very simplistic journalism here. Obviously they have their own agenda, wanting to attack Organised Religion, which is of course always the ulterior agenda of the left wing Press.

If they're investing that makes them a business venture and not a church, right?

Any church that reaps profits from death dealers is not a valid church. It'd be the equivalent of Christ shaking down the money changers in the temple rather than scourging them.

All caritative organizations, no matter if NGOs or churches invest nowadays. If you need the cash to aid somebody (because of a disaster or famine) and have to go panhandling first you might not have to help anymore because you are too late.

Having said that: kind of reminds me of the days when the Vatican was running an anti-pill campaign while holding the majority of the only AB-pill manufacturer in Italy.
