Guardians of the Gospel – Wesley Bros


«During the Civil Rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s, Martin Luther King, Jr. was most frustrated by the overwhelming silence from the vast majority of white churches.  These were nice churches, not anti-black, not pro-segregation, just opting to stay out of all these politics.  This is called complicity, and it’s silence like this that allows the folks that are openly hateful to get away with it.  It allows structures to remain in place that harm individuals.  We’ve been in the midst of a new Civil Rights movement, and the church continues the same patterns as before, either silence or self-defense…anything other than what the world really needs.»
