The Christian Left

The Christian Left movement interests me.  I like the idea of a social gospel that speaks primarily to social justice and concern for the poor and oppressed (minority groups) and to redemption and forgiveness. The Christian Left holds that social justice, renunciation of power, humility, forgiveness, and private observation of prayer (as opposed to publicly mandated prayer), are mandated by the Gospel (Matthew 6:5-6). The Bible contains accounts of Jesus repeatedly advocating for the poor and outcast over the wealthy, powerful, and religious. The Christian Left maintains that such a stance is relevant and important.  The posters above say a lot about the movement in rather clever ways.
