Chris Hedges speaks to Occupy Wall Street at Liberty Square. Calls on religious groups to give real support to OWS movement including shelter. Connects Beatitudes with Occupy movement. Says the movement will revitalize traditional Christianity in the US or signal it's moral, social and political irrelevance.

1. I think Chris Hedges once thought about being a minister
or entering a religious order. He certainly has a clearer idea of what Jesus was talking about than all the faux 'Christians' who somehow think Jesus was a supporter of Wall Street Bankers and Eternal War and Torture for profit.

Love Hedges, he knows what he's talking about having been all over the world and witnessed the disaster of the New World Order up close.

2. He attended Harvard Divinity School and his father was a Presbyterian minister.
He mentioned it in a speech I saw on LinkTV over the weekend. It was called "Calling All Rebels." They're in the middle of a fundraising drive so you might be able to catch it.
