As we head into the fall and a new election cycle, I would like to regularly provide interesting Christian alternatives to the typical Left-Right exchange. While my own personal political beliefs tend to fall on the side of the left (far left), I will try to approach topics through a Christian perspective with the intention of trying to unify readers over our shared social obligation to create a just society for all its members.
The first political post to this series will be a talk from Eduard Loring from the Jesus Radicals website. Since this article is under a Creative Commons license I am providing it here on this post. “This is the Iconocast, episode 25, March 3rd, 2011 “Murphy and Ed on the Road, part 2.”
This is the second of a two part interivew with Murphy Davis and Ed Loring. In part two, Joanna and Mark interview Eduard Loring. Ed, along with his wife Murphy Davis, have protested the death penalty, worked for housing the homeless, spoken out against racial injustice, sought justice for the poor, and fought against war. They are founding partners of the Open Door Community–a diverse residential Christian community in downtown Atlanta. For over 30 years, they have lived in community with the homeless poor, former prisoners, and others who have come to join the struggle for justice in the midst of a death-dealing culture.”
