Defenders of the Faith — We are the 6%

18 Mar

God Calls Everyone but Some don’t answer. Many including those in the church look at Stephen as somebody who needs to be fixed but it’s not Stephen who has the problem it is the temporarily abled. By saying Stephen needs to be cured, fixed or healed implies that he is defective. No that insulting attitude needs to be fixed. That type of bigotry needs to be cast aside. No more warehousing of the developmentally disabled and people with special needs!! Defenders of the Faith need to defend “the least of these” — those who are vulnerable in our society, and that includes the disabled, children, our persecuted LGBT sisters and brothers, the elderly, abused women and Veterans.  No more Willowbrooks, No more special needs/developmentally disabled kids/adults hidden away in attics or basements. No more brutal murders and suicides like Matthew Shepherd, Branden Teena & Tyler Clementi. We who claim to follow Jesus and his principles must speak out and make a stand for justice, for what is right and honorable. Those who are called can no longer hide inside their storefront churches or within mansion edifices. The world needs us now more than ever!

Occupy till I return. The word occupy here means not merely to possess, as it often does in our language, but to improve, to employ in business, for the purpose of increasing it or of making profit on it. The direction was to use this money so as to gain more against his return. So Jesus commands his disciples to improve their talents; to make the most of them; to increase their capability of doing good, and to do it until he comes to call us hence, by death, to meet him. See 1 Corinthians 12:7Eph 4:7.

We Are the 6%!!

Who Will Stand for You?

I felt extremely empowered at the March 15th Rally against the 6% budget cuts yet at the same time I’m profoundly sad, a little frightened and very worried that we live in a society and a culture that can shun and throw away disabled people like my brother Stephen, the poor, the working class, yet celebrate the rich, wealthy and moronic celebrities. How is it in America, my country that I love and served in the Military (U.S. Army) to protect, has become a place where the poor and disabled have to fight for the basic dignities of life, whereas the Koch Brothers, Mayor Bloomberg, Rockefellers,  Bushes, Rupert Murdoch, and the 1% are automatically entitled to not only the basics but even the small luxuries that should be available to all Americans. Disability Rights and Activism is also part of the…

    I totally agree with you but one thing you didn’t mention was the bullying, beating, killing and the horrid ways that LGBT kids are treated… they need protection too and I am sure Christ would have protected them also! Once I see they are included I will do whatever I can to spread the word!

      Hello Toni,

      Sorry I’m late getting back to you. Hectic week. Thank you for reading my post. Yes you are correct. LGBT kids are tortured and killed every day. I will amend my blog to include our LGBT sisters and brothers. Once again thank you for bringing this to my attention. I have to admit I was and still am caught up with the disability cause because my brother Stephen Palmer has autism but all human beings deserved protection, justice and the right to live.
