Revolutionary love: The Politics of faith
As the 2020 race to the presidency gets into full swing, there is much on the national stage to concern people of faith. Rising antisemitism and xenophobia, and the seemingly-permanent nature of anti-Black racism bear witness to the single-minded sense of superiority of our founding fathers, who build this land of the free by taking land from indigenous people.The obscene truth that a nation of immigrants wants to close our southern border, and terrorize those who would seek safety and asylum. The very real ongoing threat to members of our LGBTQIA+ communities and the threat to strides made in the women's movement and the southern freedom movement. The horrific disparities in income that leave swaths of citizens in a nightmare rather than inside the American Dream. The very real threat to the planet that human kind poses, and the stubborn commitment to the present course of inaction.
These are some of the issues we need to address at Revolutionary Love: The Politics of Faith, which is April 5-7, 2019 at Middle Collegiate Church in Manhattan.
