If all of us protested each theological disagreement we have, there would be hundreds of protests every day. This is not the way to handle disagreements, as it will lead to chaos and societal disturbance.
A hunger strike is the ideal symbol of preparation for protest, for it teaches us that we are not our own source; God is. By recognizing that God is our source, we become dependant on God, and are now prepared for change.
Today I am joining arms with Cornel West and others to voluntarily land myself in the custody of the police. We are conducting non-violent civil disobedience to put a Stop to the NYPD policy of "Stop & Frisk."
I believe that what these people are doing is the very definition of courageous. The people camping and marching should be admired for doing something that many people are too lazy or fearful to ever even consider.
Criticism of the movement, both from people who are sympathetic to their general cause, as well as from those on the right, is rooted in the sad fact that the protesters are trying to be something that they are not.
