What started on September 17 as a relatively small demonstration in Lower Manhattan has blossomed into a global revolution where the main focus is against corporate greed and corporate influence in government. At GodDiscussion.com, we have been reporting on this movement from the very beginning because of its contrast with the Christian nationalist views being presented by the Religious Right. Individual writers on the site might have opinions about the Occupy movement, but the site itself does not currently endorse or condemn it.
The New York movement has published an initial list of issues, but the demonstrations as a whole do not have specific goals or leaders.
Where do you think this movement is headed?
Our unscientific poll allows for up to four selections, and will remain open until the early morning of Sunday, October 23. Comments are welcome and wanted, especially for those who vote "other." If it is your first time commenting on the site, your comment is held in moderation. Once your very first comment is approved, all the rest should automatically publish so long as they comply with our terms and conditions.
Thanks in advance for voting!
