Worth the Watch

"Money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money...of all modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural." --Aristotle - 325 B.C.

Dante places usurers and sodomites in the same part of Hell; they confuse which things should or should not be fruitful.

Yes. That makes one reconsider what the mystery of iniquity really is and how it works. In the Bill Still documentary he refers to when Christ whipped the money-changers, and from what he says, they were usurers.
