Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." This game of pitting one outrage as more righteous than another outrage is truly outrageous.

Mass Murder in Norway --- Why Utoya Matters

Rev. Earl E. Johnson | Posted 06.19.2015 | Religion
Rev. Earl E. Johnson
