"You can rally around those people and say, 'No more killing of people through the slow crucifixions of low wage work, union busting, and lack of healthcare.'”
Matt Bernico recently published an article in Sojourners Magazine titled RECENT UNION WINS MEAN IT’S TIME FOR MORE ORGANIZED RELIGION. On this Easter Weekend, I needed to learn more.

The powers and principalities using church language;
White nationalist Christianity; and
How to organize the church.
