Progressive Religous Leaders Speak Out

Excerpts rom the Drive Democracy site:

"Those on the left who are waiting for progressive religious leaders to add their voices to the national political debate need wait no longer. A powerful assembly of religious leaders from a variety of traditions gathered at Riverside Church in New York on April 4. Their message was loud and clear: the militarism of Bush, the widening divide between rich and poor, the failure to provide families with health care, education, safe neighborhoods, even food, demands a revolution....Rev. Dr. James A. Forbes, Jr., senior pastor at Riverside, is quickly emerging as a powerful new voice in American religion and politics.

The April 4 event marked the 38th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous “Beyond Vietnam” speech at Riverside. I think he would have been proud of the gathering at Riverside on April 4, 2005.

Leaders of the progressive religious community are traveling America, speaking out against immoral and inhumane national policies which widen the gap between rich and poor and feed the military and the unjustified occupation of Iraq at the expense of the poor and middle class at home. "
