Resist oppression!

Life is what we make of it. Unfortunately, some persons are making much more of it than others. An excellent article Bill Moyers Interviews Union Theological Seminary’s Joseph Hough makes good points about this. An interesting point that wasn’t really clear to me before reading this is that the Republicans are deliberately trying to bankrupt the government so that it can’t do anything in the future. This will leave the monied elites in charge.

One of the worst parts of this is that they’re doing it under the guise and with the support of the Christian right. Now, it’s important to understand that Christianity as well as the other Abrahamic religions, i.e. Judaism and Islam, support the rights of the poor and a more equal distribution of wealth so that everyone has the necessities of life. Therefore, this is a moral, ethical, religious, economic and political issue. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and the gap is getting ever wider as the middle class is further gutted.

When are we going to say enough! When will we gather the strength and courage to rise up in nonviolent civil disobedience against the powers of oppression who are ruining our economy and the peace of the world in their diabolical quest for power?

Solidarity,

Steve
