Jesus was a community organizer - Pontius Pilate was a governor! - an alternative (to ours) viewpoint

The following excerpt was written by Jim Wallis

Wednesday morning, I got an e-mail from a former member of our Sojourners Community. His name is Perry Perkins and he is now a community organizer in Louisiana with affiliates of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF). a€oePerk,a€A as we used to call him, reported on the enormous consequences of 2 million people being evacuated because of Hurricane Gustav, much of the state now being without power, how hard cities like Baton Rouge were hit, the tens of thousands of people in shelters and churches, and the continuing problems caused by heavy rains and flooding. Then he talked about how their community organizers were responding to it all of this; responding to hundreds of service calls, assisting local officials in evacuation plans, aiding evacuees without transportation, coordinating shelters and opening new ones, providing food, essential services, and financial aid to those in most need. Since Katrina, Perrya€™s Louisiana Interfaith organizations have played a lead role in securing millions of dollars to help thousands of families return to New Orleans and rebuild their homes and their lives.

Then Wednesday night, I heard Republican Vice-Presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, say that her experience as a€oea small town mayor is sort of like a community organizer, except that you have actual responsibilities.a€A The convention crowd in St. Paul thought that was very funny. But it wasna€™t. It was actually quite insulting to the army of community organizers who work in the most challenging places across the country and have such a tremendous impact on the every day lives of millions of people. I guess Sarah Palin and her fellow Republican delegates dona€™t know much about that. The a€oeactual responsibilitiesa€A of community organizers literally provide the practical support, collective strength, and hope for a better future that low-income families need to survive,

Community organizers are now most focused in the faith community, working with tens of thousands of pastors and laypeople in thousands of congregations around the country. Faith-based organizing is the critical factor in many low-income communities in the countrya€™s poorest urban and rural areas, and church leaders are often the biggest supporters of community organizers. And many of them felt deeply offended by Sarah Palin. Here are a few of their responses:

.::Read the responses at -> Huffington Post

This situation is a great example of the right proclaiming a position that is blatantly ignorant and then trying to explain it away through saying so-called "liberals" are outraged for no reason. It’s obvious to me that the talking point for the night’s speeches, "community organizer," was similar in its application to "flip flopper" as describing John Kerry. The only problem is that in this case it doesn’t work because it’s blatantly stupid. There are community organizers on both sides, including those ones that boycott soldiers’ funerals (cough evanrepubligelicals) and abortion clinics - to name a few in a narrow scope - and now they’re all offended.

If the Republicans really want to win this election they have a long way to go now in convincing people that they aren’t the party of the rich and that they have some limited grasp on reality. My friend from The Murder, Roach, told me that increasingly the Democrats are becoming (or have become) the party of the rich. I told him that 80 million some odd evangelicals in the Republican party was sincerely helping the cause (there are roughly as many voting evangelicals in the country as there are black people, man woman and child). Anyway, send her back to the ice. Alaska?? That doesn’t even TOUCH the rest of the US. That’s basically Canada.

"As filmmakers ourselves, we understand the desire, tenacity and attachment to complete a film and bring it to audiences. We believe we’re in a unique and lucky position to find homes for films as well as facilitate their movement into the marketplace of images in ways that make them stand out." indiewire
