The Huffpo article linked below, from Ryan Bell, is almost two years old but I ran across it today while doing research into the concept of Christian Privilege. Since reading the article in my local newspaper that I shared here a few days ago, I’ve been thinking a lot about the various “Privilege” issues that continue to plague America, and I’m motivated to be more active in doing my part to address them. And I feel strongly that my life experiences, education, and circumstances make me someone who can address and actively pursue how Christian Privilege affects our public life in America. Although my experiences are not entirely parallel to Bell’s, in this article he expresses a lot of things with which I deeply resonate. So I share this article here as a marker – a starting point on my journey to try to stand up and get involved in something I feel is deeply important to our future as American humans.
So, here we go.
