Godsgift: I'm hearing a lot of emotion and opinion, but I'm not sure I'm hearing any facts.
tell me more about the girl who "just came out". How do you know she feels safe and why do you think the riders said she doesn't if that isn't the case?
as far as finding out how much bail might be if they get arrested for a PLANNED civil demonstration, I think that's wise planning on their part. As far as calling it "staged" well, they did plan the demonstration, didn't they?
Tell me more about refusing the riders entrance to a chapel service. How does banning people from a worship service align with Jesus invitation to all people?
Bible based actions? help me out here, what do you think the riders should have done that would have a Bible base? Throw the moneychangers from the temple? approach some of the campus leaders and beg for the crumbs that fall to the floor? (think about the woman who asked Jesus for help and his response was that one doesn't take the children's food and feed it to the dogs)
I also have the distinct feeling that because you've participated in activism, and no longer do so, that you feel superior to those who would continue to remain activists. This is indicated by your "been there, done that" comment. Do you feel that only "lesser" people participate in activism, or that no one should ever get involved in causes that are important?
Tolerate one another, just as I have tolerated you.- Jesus Christ?
