great, another blog!!!

Posted: December 25, 2006 in personal rants

I’ve heard too many sad stories, felt too many trembling hugs, and seen too much pain and oppression. The prophets have spoken, the progressives have blogged, and the margins have shed their tears…

I don’t have a plan. But I definitely feel the need to speak, act, and react to the injustice of today. Most of the thoughts on this page will deal with the destructive ideas, theologies, policies, etc. that cause such injustice.
This page is for the marginalized. This page is for those who marginalize. This is not a forum for debate; it is a call to contemplation. Read, think, read again, struggle, act. This site will “broadcast” the stories of those who are often left out. These stories rise from the back alley, where rays of light are rare and the weight of darkness is heavy. Unfortunately, these stories are often suppressed by those with louder voices (aka. more money). But things are changing. Hopefully soon, we will see less corporate media and more independent thought coming out of the back alley. You tube, Myspace, blogs, etc are taking the place of official and usually biased media.

***I come from a certain position and understand that my views will reflect it. Not everything I say, or every link I endorse, will be completely unbiased. We come with baggage and we spit out needed dissent, but we understand that, though we speak with passion, we are fallible. Please message me if you want. I believe in conversation, not speeches.
