Wealth theology

This idea has been around forever it seems (one example) but Zogby adds more fuel to this fire. He went to Temple, whose founder, Russell Conwell, thought that if you were rich or poor you deserved it. Why? If you were faithful to god and worked hard you were rewarded, if not you were punished. Hence praise the rich and damn the poor. Given the Supreme Corp's McCutcheon ruling heaping more power to the rich after Citizens United, and given that they're about to give corps religion, I'd say this malady seems to wash over the entire regressive party. God damn them every one.
