Restoration & Reconciliation

Defending Equality: Skip Gates & Jimmy Carter

I stumbled up on a couple fascinating stories today regarding high-profile people defending equality:

Skip Gates found himself a victim and racial profiling and was arrested for ‘breaking into’ his own house.  Read the story and another take.

Jimmy Carter severed his ties with the Southern Baptists over their stance on women.

Sometimes I grow weary when people step back and let things remain status quo.  While I can understand the reluctance to fight such a big system, I also am struck by both of these men’s willingness to use their influence to highlight these injustices.
