Child workers in a coal mine in Pennsylvania by History Palce
The religious right spends a lot of money and energy in their efforts to make rank and file Christians believe that the Bible god is against workers’ rights, unions and social welfare programs. Since the Bible suffers from severe ambiguity, they are able to get away with it. This is why, for example, during the American Civil War the North used the Bible to support its cause while the South used the Bible to support its cause. A book that ambiguous is worthless and has unlimited potential for suffering and misery if it is taken seriously and acted upon.
Just as the religious right is wrong when they promote their false idea that America was founded as a Christian nation, so they are wrong when they claim the Bible god supports unrestrained capitalism.
