I read today that social justice is not just a liberal tradition, it is a Christian tradition too. That sounded right to me, certainly thinking back about Sunday school at the Newmarket Baptist Church in Hampton, Virginia. It was all about Jesus' love. Pure and simple.
Nothing else mattered.
Today we're up against all sorts of madness, with the heart of our state hanging in the balance. One side demonizes and seeks to dominate. The blacks, the browns, the gays, the women, the teachers, the atheists. It is what they do.
The other side? Love and let live.
