Who Deserves Freedom?

A very concise description of the interactions of God/Government that clearly outlines where the responsibility for our repression lies.  Authority / Obedience and freedom dance in the heads of comman men and women of all races/religions/ages.  Obey Yourself.  You are the Authority. You are your God.  You are your Government.  Self Government is the only freedom.  Are You Free?

SPIRITUALITY OF POLITICS ~ LIVE Sunday Night

Date: 
Sunday, January 13, 2013 - 07:00

Jan.13, 7:00pm CST LIVE on MBN

John P. ClarkDr. Clark currently serves in the Department of Philosophy of Loyola University of New Orleans and as Instructor in the Environmental Studies Program.

Born in 1945 in New Orleans into a family resident in the city for twelve generations, he received all three of his degrees from Tulane University, so he is a veritable son of the City. Pax Christi of New Orleans awarded him their Bread and Roses award, and Loyola has named him the Gregory F. Curtin Distinguished Professor in Humane Letters and the Professions. He resides in Carrollton.

Dr Clark responds to the invitation to serve as DíOrlando Lecturer by focusing on our process of determining what is sacred to us and even worth dying for, perhaps not realizing what it may be until a crisis reveals what is most sacred to us. He will discuss how his religious experiences, beginning with a New Orleans Lutheran upbringing, modified by experience and study of other spiritual traditions, have led him to an understanding of the sacred in all things. He will, of course, talk about much more, so you are invited to the DíOrlando Lecture for 2013 with Dr John Clark.

St. Augustine Church Take Over

Capitalism & Racism in Religion
http://www.staugustinecatholicchurch-neworleans.org

Several people occupied St. Augustine Catholic Church in the Treme area of New Orleans, for nearly 2 weeks to draw attention to the unjust treatment this Parrish received from the archdiocese in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

This church is historic; this occupation will be history some day.

Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton & The Treme Brass Band

In front of the activist occupied Historic St Augustine Church, a key stop on the underground railroad and home of the tomb of the unknown slave.

Activists occupied the church long enough to bring national media exposure to the injustice being done to the Treme community.  Their church was not damaged in the hurricane but the Catholic Church wanted to close it anyway...  more about that here

NOLA Black Panthers & Public Housing

Take a step back in time at the B. W. Cooper Housing Projects with Malik Rahim cofounder of the Common Ground Collective hurricane relief organization and former Black Panther. B.W. Cooper Projects are slated for destruction while much of the cities returned citizens are sleeping in cars or tents .. or outlying areas. Thousands of people could be living there right now yet the city will not allow them to reopen.
