Religion and Occupy Wall Street

From the Atlanta Journal Constitution, an interesting piece on the presence of religion  in the Occupy Wall Street movement. As you might expect, the movement has kept its distance from organized religion — these are not people who are fond of institutions — but at least some of the protests have embraced an inclusive, interfaith sort of spirituality. At Boston’s OWS site, for example, there’s a “Spiritual Space” tent with a statue of Buddha,  a picture of Jesus, and a sign pointing toward Mecca. Is this just a bit too fuzzy, or a reflection of higher consciousness? Read and decide for yourself. — MLM
