“When it’s a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.” – Voltaire
Poet and fiction writer, Aundi Howerton recently introduced a multipart series at Queercents exploring the connections and disconnects of money and religion both past and present. Aundi grew up as a small town pastor’s kid and is currently living in England. She writes:
The link between money and religion is an interesting and ancient one. Money is a child of the church, literally. Practicing religion arguably has an impact on personal finance, but even without a personal practice, micro and macroeconomics are steeped in the currency of the global states of various religions.
