Jesuit-Led Parish Asks Parishioners to Take Pledge Affirming ‘White Privilege’ Must End

Post by Doka » 09-05-2020 08:51 PM

These people are obsessed with Race.......As a means of Control.........Hey "Woke" Wake-Up!

My Thoughts Exactly! The "Morons" want to take Gods Place in your life....THEY will let you know if "Passed" or not.

No Human has Domain Over Another, Unless You Give Them Permission......Who would ever want to do That!? :shock:
From Comments:

I'd love to ask one of these obtuse morons what exactly constitutes "white privilege", because I'm white, and if I'm privileged, I sure as hell never knew it. Furthermore at 71 years old I don't have much time to get privileged either.


Jesuit-Led Parish Asks Parishioners to Take Pledge Affirming ‘White Privilege’ Must End

The pastor of a New York City, Jesuit-led Roman Catholic parish is asking his parishioners to recite a “pledge for racial justice” during Mass that affirms “white privilege and the culture of white supremacy must be dismantled.”

In the video below, Rev. Kenneth Boller, S.J., pastor of the Church of St. Francis Xavier, asks parishioners to recite the “pledge for racial justice” after communion:


The parish notes on its website the pledge came from the First Unitarian Church of Dallas, Texas, and was “revised” by St. Francis Xavier.
The pledge states the parish “joins with people throughout the world, in committing itself to racial justice” and asks parishioners to respond “yes” to these questions:

DO YOU SUPPORT justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.

DO YOU AFFIRM that white privilege is unfair and harmful to those who have it and to those who do not.

DO YOU AFFIRM that white privilege and the culture of white supremacy must be dismantled wherever it is present?

DO YOU SUPPORT racial equity, justice, and liberation for every person.

DO YOU AFFIRM the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

Therefore, from this day forward . . .

WILL YOU strive to understand more deeply the injustice and suffering white privilege and white supremacy cause?

WILL YOU COMMIT to help transform our church culture to one that is actively engaged in seeking racial justice and equity for everyone.

WILL YOU make a greater effort to treat all people with the same respect you expect to receive.

WILL YOU COMMIT to developing the courage to live your beliefs and values of racial justice and equality.

WILL YOU strive daily to eliminate racial prejudice from your thoughts and actions so that you can better promote the racial justice efforts of our church.

WILL YOU renew and honor this pledge daily, knowing that our church, our community, our nation, and our world will be better places because of my efforts.
The parish conducts a workshop titled, “Dismantling Racism,” one part of which is intended “for white people to better understand white privilege.”

Kara Dansky, a former senior counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and meditation instructor, leads the program.

In a statement sent to Breitbart News, Boller wrote St. Francis Xavier “has striven to be inclusive and respectful of all people in a conscious and purposeful way.”

He added:

Over the years this has led to the establishment of the Xavier Mission with its outreach to feeding, clothing and sheltering the homeless, establishing a strong program of spiritual direction to help parishioners deepen their prayer life, providing a spiritual home to members of the LBGTQ+ community and many other initiatives. All these initiatives emanate from our commitment to putting Catholic social teaching into practice through works of charity and acts of peace and justice.

Boller said his parish has been focused on the issue of racism for the past two years.

Ah those wacky Jesuits........

Of course, there is always a flip-side:

The Christian denomination in which I grew up was founded on the proposition that slavery could flourish alongside the gospel of Jesus Christ. Its founders believed that this arrangement was not just possible, but divinely mandated. Yet many white Christians, like myself, came of age in churches and communities where we seldom heard anything substantive or serious about the white-supremacist roots of our faith.

I was raised in a Southern Baptist family, participated actively in my Southern Baptist church, and graduated from Mississippi College, a Southern Baptist institution. But it wasn’t until I was a 20-year-old seminary student that I began to grasp the central role that my denomination, and white Christians generally, have played in sustaining and legitimizing white supremacy. I knew that there had been a split between Northern and Southern Baptists, but the narrative was vague. Baptists in the South, I was taught, were caught in larger cultural and political fights that were rending the country in the mid-1800s. And—just as I had learned from my Mississippi public-school education—the true causes of the Civil War were “complicated.” Slavery was not the central issue but merely one of many North-South conflicts precipitating the split. As the prominent Baptist historian Walter “Buddy” Shurden has pointed out, it wasn’t until the last quarter of the 20th century that white Baptist historians confronted the denomination’s pro-slavery, white-supremacist origins.

Funny, it's the first quarter of the 21st century: So, when is the Democrat party going to confront its own pro-slavery, white-supremacist origins? Or does projection count? "Hey, let's rewrite history!!" Yeah, that's the ticket.

Embrace anti-racism!! Black is beautiful. White ain't right. Dat is all da people need to know.

Well, one group's religious. The other's political.

I expect certain things from religious groups.

I gave up on politicians a long time ago.............

Is Politics The New Religion?

In general, I have expectations of politicians - Trouble is, not only for the most & all too long ain't we been getting good governance at every level, it's what all too many of them expect from all of US that's galling.

Ironically, you may have given up on politicians, but they haven't given up on you! Similarly, you may not help elect them, but that doesn't mean pols don't care about your welfare: Even the worst care, same as any leeches would. You can't get blood from a turnip, but you can from voters with a mind of a vegetable.

Ask not what a politician can do for you, ask what they might do TO you - Promise you heaven, put you through hell: All I know it's gonna be one helluva election & aftermath. In Mobs We Trust? God, I hope not.

There certainly are mobs 'a plenty Riddick. Both sides have been arming for a while now. Ain't gonna be pretty. This election with make Dubya v Gore look like kindergarten. Neither side expected to accept the results on their face, and with Roger Stone pushing Trump to just go straight to declaring martial law - and Trump aiming for president for life, this election season promises to be like no other

WOO! That's "news" to me! First I've heard of it - Sounds kinda like a checkout tabloid headline? - Please share details & sources of what you know about this if you'd like...

As for the story about Roger Stone's advice if the president loses, I can see how a "leap in logic" tying it to Trump's past allusions about the country considering reversing term limits someday MIGHT be made: That said, I'd put the odds of a "martial law" president for life ploy playing out favorably as low.

OTOH, in the case of a disputed outcome with no winner, If it comes to there's states that can't certify their results by the deadline, & no candidate gets at least 270 electoral votes to declare victory my understanding is there'll be a "contingent election" & as it stands, odds Trump wins there are strong.

We're in totally uncharted territory so making any bets is risky. BUT if I WAS gonna make any wagers, I'd go with there'll be no clear winner...

It boggles the mind, to see in writing, what trained "Hatred" can do to a said human. Obviously, it blots out "Reason" to a very high degree. It is amazing, how much influence, a Rachel Maddow has on the orphans of humanity. This is one of her favorite threats. Evidently stops anyone from pulling their head out of their butts for look around, and an inability to believe what "Other" things that the may see. Too afraid to , I would guess.

I can just about bet that this is the last thing Trump would want, unless he could keep "Building" Faster than the Demorats can destroy. It does drive them nuts when he suceeds with Peace Treaties and etc. Perhaps, all the "Haters" are War Mongers, sounds about, right, and we haven't started A war in the last four years, just Peace Treaties, what ever is the matter with Trump........Obamie had least 7 wars going in his 1st four years. Sorry , Rancid Warrors.

Rachel's just doing her job! And reporting real news ain't it. The MSM's raison d'etre today is to create "pulp horror"/"fear porn" stories & promote the spread of TDS. It doesn't take alot to drive some folks foaming-at-the-mouth crazy, yet even natural skeptics' resistance to infection falls with prolonged exposure & an accompanying erosion of critical thinking...

OMG! "He's not wearing a mask!" What else can be said about Tuesday's signing ceremony? If he can help bring off an Israel-Arab peace treaty, what more unspeakably deplorable qcts is he capable of?!? It's Orange Man Bad, non-stop 24/7/365. And it'll only end when the usual deep-state swamp-rat suspects get what they want, no matter what it takes.

Other things, like a hiding-in-plain-sight domestic "Color Revolution" mebbe? But what's to fear from that? If tearing the country apart's what it takes, SO BE IT: not only will the horror of Trump be behind us, most importantly - and FINALLY - America will have what it needs, a president with admirably hairy legs. To quote Biden Da Bomb:
"Cause if you could take care, if you were a quartermaster, you can sure in hell take care runnin' a, you know, a department store uh, thing, you know, where, in the second floor of the ladies department or whatever, you know what I mean?
AMEN bro! Who can argue with that? AND succinctly & eloquently put! Truer words were never spoken. JoeMala 2020!!
