quote of the night

"Whose God is God? That is at the heart of our struggle.
Is it the god of one supreme race, one supreme gender, the god of the rich young rulers?

Or is it the God of mercy grace and justice, for all?
is the god that condoned slavery, and the denial of women's rights, the denial of workers rights, denial of education for all?

Or is it the God of liberation, a God who finds joy in our reaching back for the least of these, in our defending the poor and setting the captives free?

Do we serve a god of the rich young rulers, who see the life from the mansion down?
Or do we see a God whose view of life is life from the manger, up?
Who sees life through a door for all of us, and not as through a keyhole for the lucky and the few.

Out of our theology comes our politics."

-- Rev. Jesse Jackson, speaking at the Campaign for America's Future
