On Messrs Buffett and Gates’ charity
Lest one think they are returning to the socially responsible Christianity of 19th-century gentlemen. Yes, I’m jealous of their wealth, and agree with conservatives and libertarians that one benevolent rich man left alone by the state does far more good than state schemes, but this criticism from the Revd James Konicki and Dr Thomas Fleming via Joshua Snyder still is true. Knock Christian values off their foundation upon Christian theology and you get this.
