The Big Issue is *not* poverty (for Western Christians)

So I argue at Junior Ganymede.

I could have added that the deficiency of Western material poverty should not be seen as the trigger to scour the world - especially Africa - seeking material poverty; still less for Westerners to create and sustain endemic severe poverty and famine in Africa by keeping people just alive with modern medicine and 'aid'.

(Before Western intervention, Africans were among the most prosperous and best-fed people in the world - per capita; since high mortality from infectious diseases kept the population density low.)
