A Theological Balance by Dorothee Soelle

13-05-2007 12:02

Believing in love is more than worshipping the heavenly button-pusher.. Our way of life and politics separates us from Jesus' life, not what happens in the bedroom.. Learning to share is a feminist project annulling the oldest injustice.

13-05-2007 08:25

The primary focus of a small piece like this would be accompanied by the
two images which I considered putting up, but everyone who is regarding
the debasement of their culture in the face of globalisation would have

Breakdwon FM M-1 of dead prez vs Don Imus - & Democracy now report & transcript

13-04-2007 21:58

M-1: I'm here to represent for African people. I'm here to
represent for hip-hop. I don't have a lot to say, but what I have to
say is important. First of all, I would like to pay respect to the
father of this culture that I'm a part of, sitting right beside me,
Afrika Bambaataa. That's important. That's important, because I think
there's a few things that we do know, and what we do know is that the
media in this country is an organ of the state and the ruling class
state that controls what we're hearing and what we're seeing. I'm
clear on that. So it helps me understand our position. It helps me
understand that this propaganda is part of a war that also exists
against the black and brown community. It's not just a war for oil,
it's a war for the minds of our people.
