Brash and Spong?

From Toby Manhire's blog on things political in the NZ Listener: 
Asked about his religious convictions, Brash said he is a fan of Bishop John Spong. Who he? Why, a liberal, progressive American Christian. And what sort of things does he promulgate? Here he is, from his personal site, on capitalism:
A socially-sensitive, community-oriented capitalism that refuses to allow too much wealth to accumulate in the hands of the super rich and too little opportunity provided to break the bondage of the chronically poor is, I believe, the best economic system for stability. At this moment in America, the gap between the rich and the poor is dangerously wide.
Have we got the right guy, Don, because – never mind.

Hmm.....well Don, if Spong's your cup of tea, good luck to you.  You can have him.
