This is a little misleading because the Priest didn't advise/encourage the congregation to shoplift.
His point was that our society has put people in a situation where they have to commit crimes to survive. That being the case, shoplifting is better than armed Robbery or Residential Burglary.

Charitable giving in the United States fell by 2 percent in 2008 the largest year-over-year drop and only the second decline since the Giving USA Foundation began tracking American philanthropy 53 years ago.
Individual donations dropped by about 2.7 percent from 2007 to last year, corporate giving fell by about 4.5 percent and foundation contributions grew by about 3 percent, according to the report.
This year in this country more people are giving but the decline in total dollars is still in decline.
