Burn everything down. We are as lost from our own gospel as we've ever been while screaming at everyone else that we are the only ones "found." Our women are abused and unprotected, and our "sanctuaries" are nothing of the sort. Why would anyone listen to any of us? The amount of repentance necessary to EVER regain 1 ounce of credibility as an evangelical community is just staggering. Look to our ditches: women, refugees, people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, the poor. These are supposed to be our charges, instead they are our victims.

"Lamentably, it is an historical fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily. Individuals may see the moral light & voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but, as Niebuhr has reminded us, groups tend to be more immoral than individuals." #MLK "Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct-action campaign that was “well timed” in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation." #MLK #BirminghamJail
