ScienceBlogs has the funniest ads sometimes. This image adorned the right hand side of my screen this morning (maybe now it’s there twice). Intrigued I wanted to know more:
Compassion believes it takes more than education, healthcare and social programs to make a difference in the life of a child and help nations escape from poverty.
Finally, someone’s advocating the abolition of all third world debt. Or they’re suggesting that there needs to be a nonviolent civil uprising to remove authoritarian regimes throughout the Global South and expose the multinationals who support them. Exposing the World Bank and IMF structural adjustment programs as a sham?
Well, not quite:
It’s only by the gospel of Jesus Christ that poverty can end, and lives be forever changed.
Cue The Onion‘s biting satire.
