With the rise of authoritarianism, nationalism, xenophobia, and bigotry in America, we are reminded of other similar tumultuous, dark times in recent history. From the systematic extermination of Jews in the holocaust to racial segregation and discrimination of African-Americans, let’s return to the lives and divine works of Detrich Bonhoeffer and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Both men faced great opposition, but both had a deep faith that spurred them to rise up and oppose the evil of their day. In this chaotic and turbulent moment in American history, let their prophetic voices speak the truth, help us to resist, and shine a light into the growing tide of discrimination and bigotry. The Religious Right and their tribe are on the wrong side of history and must be opposed. Christianity also needs to be rescued along with the rest of us from this madness. Wouldn’t it be nice for humanity if history didn’t have to repeat itself? When will we ever learn?
Come along for the ride as we skewer through life, culture, and spirituality in the face of a changing world.
