Liberation theologian James Cone has said:

“It is ironic that America, with its history of injustice to the poor, especially the black man and the Indian, prides itself on being a Christian nation.”

So, what sense does a profoundly faithful black Christian woman make of America still mired in its many racial sins?   What can be said about a nation who remains at odds with itself in its resistance to the spiritual healing that it so desperately needs?

In this very personal conversation,  The Rev. Dr Fatimah Salleh mourns with me the brokenness that is in her nation and her church.

    Brilliant, Beautiful, and Devastating. Graduated many many years ago from high school with Rev. Dr. Fatimah Salleh – knew she was one we should all be listening to then and know she is still one to be listening to now. I too have left, know, and love the Mormon community – would love to see more move beyond and to see them dismantle racism and sexism within their religious communities.
