A life that will reverse the social, political, and religious norms that will put people of power under the feet of the marginalized;
Day Fourteen.

Jesus never taught us to rise up against the oppressors. In fact, he taught just the opposite. He taught us to turn the other cheek, to give give our coats when as well as our shirts, to love those who hate us, to do good to those that harm us.

History has shown time and time again that when the ones in power are put under the feet of the marginalized, the oppressed become the oppressors.

We saw in in the ethnic cleansing in Rwanda and Bosnia. We see it now between Shiitte and Sunni moslems.

Fighting hate with hate, evil with evil, retribution with retribution, just invites more hate, evil, and retribution.

Jesus taught us a better way: love everyone. I don’t see much of that in your writing.
