Jesus was all right, but his disciples were thick and ordinary.
It's them twisting it that ruins it for me.

San Diego Needs:

Activist
San Diego is asking that anyone owning a spare or older working
laptop computer consider donating it to us to be used in the ASD
equipment community lending program we currently have. Any donated
computers will be used by ASD members and any members of the SD
community who need use of a laptop for a short period of time to
interface with some of our other lending equipment (such as video
and power point screen projector…) Activist San Diego is a
501c3 non profit and all donations will be tax deductible. Thank
you for your consideration in this matter.

Food for Thought


"I don't want to retract -- I want to amend. I think it's much
more of a theological question. ... Read his own books, he writes
about the white culture and how he struggled with it, etc., etc.
I didn't understand really his theological viewpoints come from
Liberation Theology; that's what I think at the gut level I was
sensing and I miscast it as racism."
