Riveting Discussion

Just got back from Youth Group where we discussed Peter Singer's article, The Singer Solution to World Poverty.  I'm biased, but I thought the discussion was fascinating. 

I found it particularly interesting when we asserted that Jesus is more radical in his demands than Singer, but that we are okay with Jesus more so than Singer.  I wonder what this illustrates?

Finally, I still wonder how our responses would be altered if we were the marginalized rather than the wealthy in the world.

Thanks for all who contributed to the discussion!  Keep thinking!
