2021 Reconsiderations

States to Avoid

After the 2016 Election, I took some heat for posting the “red” states that one might want to avoid. Since we have now lost four years of our lives, I have reconsidered that earlier warning and suggest that we only avoid those states that persisted being “red” in 2020. As was the 2016 alert, this is not a call for a boycott but rather an urging to support those states that have their priorities straight and to avoid those that don’t. Read my original thoughts and state list here.  Despite the calls for unity, we know that dedicated political and religious fundamentalists are more likely to respond to nonviolent pressure than to pleasantries. Republicans can understand and learn from and respond to Law and Order.

You may want to consider avoiding Republican-owned businesses. A close friend is now searching for a new chiropractor and massage therapist when she discovered that hers were T**** supporters who refused to wear masks. Another is looking for a new handyman when he discovered that his current worker refused to support Black Lives Matter. Some feel that all that matters is the quality of one’s work. As important as that is, we need to support workers and businesses that have a progressive, inclusive worldview; and avoid those that have a regressive, fundamentalist outlook.

Beyond Irony

Is anyone else amazed, even insulted, that Giving Tuesday comes AFTER Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday? So, if you have anything left after shopping, give a little on the needy. This seems to show blatantly our national priorities. Charity comes after the economy! Some may say that without a growing economy, we can’t afford charity. Wrong! It’s a matter of priorities. We’ll be just fine with a steady-state economy and have plenty to give away.

Post-Election Language

During the 2016 campaign, Hilary supporters made the mistake of calling T**** followers “despicables.” T****-ites took that as a badge of honor. I preferred to call them “gullibles.” Now after four years of despicable non-leadership and an election of unbelievable sedition, I think “gullibles” is far too mild.

The Biden-Harris team has called us to work together, to be united. I think some things must happen first. We who support the new team must admit our part in the Earth-killing and grieve and change ourselves.

And we must hold the T**** supporters accountable for their on-going support of such a man and such a party.

We must remember the “Triumvirate of Evil” — T****, McConnell and Paul Ryan — who brought us the Republican Tax Scam of 2017 that gave away billions to large corporations and the wealthy. We must work to reverse that immense inequality and instead to Tax the Rich!

We can pay for so many essential social programs by having a just redistribution of wealth.

Post-Election Thoughts

Shallow Patriotism

I’m disturbed by the use of the American flag for partisan political purposes. I call it shallow patriotism. Also disturbing is the use of fake flags — American flag with black stripes to show support for police or soldiers. These false flags show disregard for America,  not loyalty. The commercialization of the flag by using it for purses, clothing, etc. is an affront to the flag. As a child I was taught respect for the flag. not its abuse, manipulation or redesign. Avoid being drawn into “shallow patriotism.”

This is more than “flag etiquette,” such as taking the flag down at night or shining a light on it in the dark. It is illegal to desecrate the flag, to burn it or to make something of it that it is not.

Beware the Clinton Syndrome

I was there. I saw it happen. The Democrats were so happy to see Bill Clinton elected that they sat back, and instead of working for systemic change, said “Bill’ll handle it.” And he couldn’t because the Republicans under Newt Gingrich and his “Contract on America,” organized against him and took over the House two years later.

American progressives must not be apathetic! Joe won’t handle it. He’s a militarist and a corporatist. Despite his calls for unity, the Republicans with their really deep pockets are organizing against him. We must also organize to pressure him to do what’s best for the Earth, not the wealthy.

Can we liberate Christmas from its cultural captivity and rediscover the truly prophetic story that speaks to the crises of our world today?

Peace On Earth and the Politics of Christmas

Sat. 12/5, 10:30 am-12:30 pm EST

The celebration of Christmas is often wrapped in innocent, Hallmark-card imagery. But in fact the biblical texts describing the coming of Jesus are making powerful assertions about the politics of the Bible that speak very much to our contemporary global crises.  In this virtual class, we will reflect on the “nativity narratives” in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke to see how they express core biblical themes of justice and liberation.  We will try to “un-domesticate” these tales of liberation and reflect on how they are truly challenging us to a revolutionary discipleship.  A perfect event for Advent. 

Registration is required.  A $10 donation is requested (or whatever you can afford).

Register today!

The deadline for registration is November 30.

Questions? Contact Will O’Brien at (215) 842-1790 or willobrien59@gmail.com

The Alternative Seminary is a program of biblical and theological study and reflection designed to foster an authentic biblical witness in the modern world.
