Rev William Barber channels Dorothy Day, etc., etc.

The list of people Rev. Barber was channeling at the Dems’ convention is very, very long….back to New Testament and further.

 

Rev. Barber mentioned Dorothy Day in his speech. Small wonder.

This  is the introduction to the first Dorothy Day’s newspaper, Catholic Worker 1933:

“For those who are sitting on benches in the warm spring sunlight.

For those who are huddling in shelters trying to escape the rain.

For those who are walking the streets in the all but futile search for work.For those who think that

there is no hope for the future, no recognition of their plight, THE CATHOLIC WORKER is being

edited….”*

It burns me up what the right, Protestant and Catholic, deem Christianity all about sex and give hate-filled sermons. Churches, synagogs, mosques, are grassroots organizing places, not right-wing Hotspots.
