A priest that is totally cool with stealing stuff

England is the home of Robin Hood, so the idea of "robbing from the rich to feed the poor" is something that they're use to over there. However, a priest is now advocating shoplifting if somebody is in dire need.

The Rev. Tim Jones caused an uproar by telling his congregation that it is sometimes acceptable for desperate people to shoplift _ as long as they do it at large national chain stores, rather than small, family businesses.

Umm... last time I checked stealing was illegal and marked up in of the ten commandments. I know that God probably understands if you're starving but the fact that a priest is advocating shoplifting is just a wee bit weird.
