A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
I need to go see this

"The bottom line is that America is not, and has never tried to produce African adults who are functional, self-sufficient…who understand their politics, their economics, and their relationship to the world politic and the worlds economics"
"Senator Bradley of the all-white United States Senate said ‘we can’t get there unless we all go there together.’ Sorry. You’re making a moral appeal to a country that doesn’t have a moral conscious. The question becomes that: when white people feel serious and angry about abortion they come out in the thousands up to the millions to say ‘this is what we believe about abortion.’ Where is the white outcry against white racism that murders African people all around this entire globe? It doesn’t exist. So who are these good white people? I want to meet them! I want to see them!"
