Whilst the tech industry behemoths in Silicon Valley often decry their wanting for liberal values and greater ‘equality for all’, it is exactly this ‘hypocrisy’ that made a pastor working for the First Baptist Church in Palo Alto resign from his position. He claimed to feel “exasperation” over the contradictions of wealthy liberals in northern California.

In a series of ranting tweets, Mr Gregory Stevens decried the “elitist shit den of hate” that he said Palo Alto had become.

“I believe Palo Alto is a ghetto of wealth, power, and elitist liberalism by proxy, meaning that many community members claim to want to fight for social justice issues, but that desire doesn’t translate into action”

Mr Stevens then went on to complain how it had become impossible for anyone with a normal income to rent a place in the city: “the insane wealth inequality and the ignorance toward actual social justice is absolutely terrifying.”

“The tech industry is motivated by endless profit, elite status, rampant greed, and the myth that their technologies are somehow always improving the world.”

He also note how his church was placed in one of the richest neighborhoods in the city, with real estate prices for normal housing going anywhere from $5m to $15m: “Jesus was a homeless Jew who said it was harder for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven than for a camel to get through the eye of a needle. It is very difficult to do Christian ministry, a ministry that calls us to fight with and for the poor and marginalized among us, in the midst of an enclave of wealth and power.”

“The working class does not benefit from these ‘advances’, but cook, clean, and baby sit rich babies before heading off to home on long hours of public transit.”

I think he is feeling that he can't do GODs work in that environment.

It sounds like the congregation only shows for face vslue,not real Christians.

GOD bless him for trying.

Implying Christianity is anything other than soft communist faggotry. Was it Jesus or Trudeau who said "if you fight your enemies, they win"? Fuck California.
