Continuing the poor people's campaign, which many assume is the reason MLK was killed...with Rev William Barber playing the modern day role
I really like this dude, genuinely
Caught an interview with him about the voting rights and gerrymandering going on in NC this past election
Dude is really on it IMO
Even his scripture reference peeked my interest
Let the congregation read from the Book of James, chapter 5, verses 1-6:
1 And a final word to you arrogant rich: Take some lessons in lament. You'll need buckets for the tears when the crash comes upon you. 2 Your money is corrupt and your fine clothes stink. 3 Your greedy luxuries are a cancer in your gut, destroying your life from within. You thought you were piling up wealth. What you've piled up is judgment. 4 All the workers you've exploited and cheated cry out for judgment. The groans of the workers you used and abused are a roar in the ears of the Master Avenger. 5 You've looted the earth and lived it up. But all you'll have to show for it is a fatter than usual corpse. 6 In fact, what you've done is condemn and murder perfectly good persons, who stand there and take it.
The 40 days of moral action are being dubbed the largest nonviolent movement of the 21st century...which culminates next weekend in a national day of solidarity in DC on the 23rd

This got more bounce to it>>>>>>>
Go to now, ye rich men. Weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

Come now, you rich. Weep and howl for your miseries that are coming upon you! Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days. Indeed the wages of the laborers who mowed your fields, which you kept back by fraud, cry out; and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived on the earth in pleasure and luxury; you have fattened your hearts as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned, you have murdered the just; he does not resist you.

in the bible belt
and the politicians love to mix church and state
When they pass these austerity measures like a $2T tax cut...how do the voters, whom I'm assuming are devout christians...get right with their lord, when their actions are in direct contradiction with their lord and savior
