Wallis to Join in "Social Justice Sunday
"There’s so much excitement here about Louisville’s pro-Democracy versus pro-theocracy religious Sunday, April 24 rallies that tonight they’re having the world’s largest fireworks display, Thunder Over Louisville.
Okay, so the fireworks have something to do with a little upcoming event called the Kentucky Derby. Still, the fireworks are coming on the eve of the DriveDemocracy/Clergy and Laity Network rally (at 2:30, Central Presbyterian Church) and the Frist/Dobson Family Research Council telethon Sunday night from a nearby megachurch.
Jim Wallis is coming to our progressive clergy event. He’ll join the roster of religious leaders speaking out against the right wing attacks on the judiciary and the constitution.
We’re adding linear feet to the press risers as all the nets have confirmed, along with other mainstream outlets from around the country.
If you know anyone in Louisville, get them to the church on time. There’ll be a crowd, but crowded is good.
Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist ought to be reconsidering the threatened “nuclear option,” scrapping the traditional filibuster to win confirmation for some of President Bush’s extremist judicial nominees. The public opposes him, Many Republicans nearly all the Democrats oppose him, progressives across the countrying are rallying against him.
Progressive religious leaders are learning that to take back heaven, they’re going to have to raise a little hell. With fireworks, even."
