Unfortunately there is truth to what you say. I wish the church would admit that the reason some people live in economies where even the pets are looked after is because of capitalism. For too many in the church this great system that reduced poverty is thought of as exploitive. There are many poor Catholic countries in the world that would benefit enormously from the church having a supportive attitude to capitalism.
Poverty by definition is a lack of goods. Capitalism is the greatest system for producing goods and because it is a swapping of wealth in order to participate it necessarily encourages more production of wealth/goods.
What disappoints me about my church is that it believes if it can take tax payers money and have the right to distribute it then it is fulfilling Jesus’ commands to help the poor. In poor countries that don’t have developed economies the tax payers money is not there. Production is the key to helping the poor and participatory capitalism is the best system to increase production.
The answer is not to force or shame people from looking after their pets and redistribute their wealth to poor nations but to improve poor economies and encourage participating in capitalism there.
Same story with mass migration. You are not helping the world situation by facilitating mass immigration to the west you are creating more problems. I fear if my church does not come to terms with the goodness of nationalism and capitalism it will be making the world a worse place while erroneously believing itself to be .
fulfilling the mission of Christ.
