Firstly, I refer you to my post THE FINANCIAL AND MORAL POVERTY OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND.
Secondly I refer you to this report from REUTERS:
The Church of England will this week make a decision about whether to retain its 2.5 million pound investment in the mining group Vedanta Resources (VED.L), which has been accused of building a mine that breaches the rights of a tribe of native people in India. The Church of England's Ethical Advisory Group will meet to discuss the issue now that the group's members have visited the mining operations in question. Three years ago the Norwegian state pension fund sold its shares in the mining company because it did not want to risk contributing to "severe environmental damage and serious or systematic violations of human rights".
Thirdly I refer you to this comment from our friend, ANDREW PLUS:
In the mean time, this week the Grand Tufti will speak at the Trinity Institute at a conference called "Building an Ethical Economy: Theology and the Marketplace" in New York City.
COMMENT: "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation."
Do I hear "Amen?"
