The "Free market" religion

It's the unofficial religion of the United States - the "free market." Those of us who don't worship at that church undoubtedly got a good laugh from this front-page headline in the Washington Post a couple days ago:
Financial Rescues Show That Faith in Free Market Is Shaken
Was your faith shaken? I know mine wasn't. Because the only "faith" I have in the "free market" is that it will operate every day, in every way, including using "government" (i.e., the people's) money to bail out failing corporations, to help the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. And that's not something I'm praying for.
