Idolatry

"From this standpoint, Latin American theology examine the question of God from the origins of present-day Latin America. 'Millions of human beings were sacrificed on the altar of gold and silver. God and silver became the new gods.' Leonardo Boff, analyzing what happened five hundred years ago asks: 'Why so much violence? . . . Only to enable the Christians to achieve 'their basic goal which is gold.'' and this is the basic thesis of Gustavo Gutierrez's book Dios o el moro en las Indias (God or gold in the Indes). Then it was called gold, today it has more sophisticated names, but its results are the same. The same history is repeated with new protagonists."    - Jon Sobrino ; Jesus the Liberator


"The basic fact is that old and new idols produce victims. In the simple, recent words of two Panamanian bishops: 'Gold, a god that begot victims. The dollar, an idol that delivers death."    - Jon Sobrino ; Jesus the Liberator
