Then there is the nefarious rule declaring that rich people are morally superior to poor people

This reminds me of what G.K. Chesterton wrote in Orthodoxy:

If we assume the words of Christ to have meant the very least that they could mean, His words must at the very least mean this — that the rich man are not likely to be morally trustworthy. Christianity even when watered down is hot enough to boil all modern society to rags. The mere minimum of the Church would be a deadly ultimatum to the world. For the whole world is based on the assumption, not that the rich are necessary (which is tenable), but that the rich are trustworthy, which (for a Christian) is not tenable.
[…]
There is one thing that Christ and all the Christian saints have said with a sort of savage monotony. They have said simply that to be rich is to be in peculiar danger of moral wreck. It is not demonstrably un-Christian to kill the rich as violators of definable justice. It is not demonstrably un-Christian to crown the rich as convenient rulers of society. It is not certainly un-Christian to rebel against the rich or to submit to the rich. But it is quite certainly un-Christian to trust the rich, to regard the rich as more morally safe than the poor.

Also, fun fact: Up until the 18th century the Christian church had outlawed the charging of interest at any rate. Unfortunately, they since gave up on that matter.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
