Hooray for you! Now Get Out!

Jesus said, "Accolades to you when you are despised and persecuted; and no place will be found, wherever you have been persecuted."  Gospel of Thomas 68

Those who follow the way of Jesus...and I mean those who truly live it-love the outcast.  They love those rejected by society, the downtrodden, those who smell, or who may not know social etiquette.  They speak truth to power for justice and that light within all humanity.  Martin Luther King did it.  So did Oscar Romero, Malcolm X, Dorothy Day, Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Marcus Garvey and so many others throughout history.  And yet they knew what it was to be rejected, to be despised at times.  They had fans who would turn on them at the drop of a hat....just like Jesus.  May we have the grace to stand for that of good in all people, and for the sake of the truth of all people, even if we stand alone.  Even if it hurts.
