This past Sunday our church service was dedicated to MLK Jr. Our priest mentioned that she was a sr. in high school in 1960 when there was the stink over desegregating schools and she told of a teacher who went for a walk and decided she wanted to go teach in one of these desegregated schools to help things get smoothed over. Her family was aghast though when she said something about following Moses example in standing up for the rights of the oppressed who deserved equal rights.
Well her father said "We don't follow Moses, we follow Jesus Christ!!" She stopped there, our priest, and kind of smirked at the disconnect there. Yeah, we follow this other guy who stood up and preached kindness towards others, loving thy neighbor, not that other guy...who also tried to fight against the mistreatment of people of another race.
