Where Are the Religious Leaders Today?

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.”
