The “money quotes”

Regarding the global financial crisis and the USA’s impending bailout of financial institutions: From Bishop Alan’s blog, we are seeing

a new form of “socialism” that, having privatised the profits is now socialising the losses.

And from Bono:

It’s extraordinary to me that the United States can find $700 billion to save Wall Street and the entire G8 can’t find $25 billion dollars to saved 25,000 children who die every day from preventable diseases.

The voices of the churches seem extraordinarily muted on this.
