A Call for Selflessness

John Edwards:

Edwards, in an interview with the Web site Beliefnet.com, said Jesus would be most upset with the selfishness of Americans and the country's willingness to go to war "when it's not necessary."
John and I won't agree on when it's necessary to oppose evil but I think we're in agreement on that selfishness thing.

Well, one of us is, anyway.
The recreation building contains a basketball court, a squash court, two stages, a bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, swimming pool, a four-story tower, and a room designated “John’s Lounge.”

Really, I'm fine with being rich. But John, don't presume to pass judgment on people who have vastly less than you do. Americans are the most generous people on the planet. Your criticism is like, what? I dunno... like one of our biggest energy consumers telling us to conserve. What's next? Is Madonna going to preach to us about being chaste?
