The teachings of modern day US Christians are incompatible with modern US capitalism. First round acceptance.

I would like to define capitalism to mean
An economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit.

My opponent may define what he means by "Modern Day Christianty.

The other day I was talking to my friend, Larry the Unicorn. He attends church every Sunday, reads the bible to his two Colts and a Foal and once a month he gives 10% of his earnings to charity.

When he is not being a good christian, Larry works as the owner of a large lawfirm, which specialises in disputes involving animal rights cases. As a business owner he stirves to make his business the best he can be, and earns a steady income every month. If it is possible for a Unicorn to be poth a practising christian and a thriving capitalist then surely it can be achievd by the Average Joe.
