Blessed are the nonviolent resisters

Kimberly Knight (UCC)

“Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.”  I imagine that those standing in the blood, sweat and tears of Rome’s occupation found this utterance of very little comfort.

Kimberly Knight (UCC)

September proved to be a very bad month to be young and gay in America.  15-year-old Billy Lucas, 13-year-old Asher Brown, 18-year-old Tyler Clementi,  13-year-old Seth Walsh, and 19-year-old Raymond Chase all took their own lives because they were bullied for being gay.
