"When we love the jewish child and the Palestinian child, the Muslim and the Christian and the Hindu..."

“When we love the jewish child and the Palestinian child, the Muslim and the Christian and the Hindu and the Buddhist and those who have no faith but they love this nation, we are reviving the heart of our democracy. When we fight for peace, and when we resist the proliferation of military style weapons on our street, and when we stand against the anti-democratic stronghold of the NRA, we are reviving the heart of our democracy.”

-

North Carolina NAACP head Rev. William Barber

I am not religious, but if I had grown up with religious leaders like this, who teach love and compassion and equality and kindness, instead of the fire-and-brimstone of judgement and intolerance and fear, maybe I would be.
