Charity: when love comes too late

when love's come too late
net catches the larger scraps we left for the dogs
couldn't let you fall
too far
lest you made a mess

Apparently SydAngs are alright at social welfare but suck on social justice.

Here is David Hohne on a similar vein

Personally, I think I will never do social justice properly as a Sydney Anglican until some other Sydney Anglican compellingly argues why we can't think in terms of 'human rights' and then gives me a helpful alternative framework.

We are too afraid to say to our social institutions that God's blueprint is the self sacrificial love of Jesus. Who has publically said that to a bank recently? Yet I'm supposed to respect bankers because they wear a suit.
