The question is asked, “Where are
the religious leaders today to speak
to our dismay?” Where are the Martin
Luthers, John Calvins, Martin Luther
King, Jr.s or the prophets of antiquity?
Is there none for posterity? There are
no voices today to speak to our dismay.
Have the voices silently slipped away,
compromised by the temporal, temporary
comfort provided by an economy that
seduces, gives and then threatens to
take away? For comfort and false
security, have we all sold our souls
to the capitalist devil and been
silenced along the way? Where are the
religious leaders with a commanding
presence to speak truth to power and
help us in our dismay come what may?
Ah, and there is the rub —
we all fear the “come what may.”
