Religion and Politics CAN Mix

This is not a political blog.  Carter and I had many discussions on making sure this is not a political blog.  My father even warned me, “Two things you never discuss in public:  politics and religion.”  Well, hold on to your horses, ‘cause we’re gonna do both!  

The Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal Bishop of Washington is my new hero!  Maybe because I’m a non-practicing Christian who self-identifies as Episcopalian.  I was raised in the Lutheran church by a Catholic mother and Agnostic Father (they always said when they got married they met in the middle), but converted and was re-confirmed as Episcopalian when I was in college.

Bishop Budde was quoted as saying, “It is about love of neighbor and sacrificial love and justice.”  She referred to the peaceful protests as “a sacred act.” 

Her words were calm and welcoming as she called for peace and justice.  She said all citizens were welcomed into the church who wanted to pray together for peace and justice.  In her Twitter feed, Bishop Budde confirmed, “We are followers of Jesus. … We stand with those seeking justice for the death of George Floyd through the sacred act of peaceful protest.”  Bishop Budde closed an interview on Good Morning America urging everyone to align themselves with the God of unconditional love and justice. 

In publicity it’s all about frequency and repetition, so I’ll say it again, Peace and Justice
