Kansas City Talks 'Liberation Theology' Amid The Era Of Prez Trump Tonight



This local conversation is worth consideration as Kansas City progressives commune with one another today and hope for the future.

Here's their note which hints at increased local activism:

Jesus The Liberator

Jesus was a person of color who was born under an oppressive Roman regime, and when Jesus launched his ministry at age 30, he started by declaring freedom for the captives! This message of liberation and hope has animated the church in poor and marginalized communities all over the world! This Advent season, we are continuing our series on race with a conversation about liberation theology and reading the Christmas story through the eyes of the oppressed. Father Turbo Qualls, Deacon of St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Christian Church, will be our guest teacher.

Today at 6:30 PM - 8 PM
The Open Table
318 E 55th St, Kansas City, Missouri 64113

He was Aramaic - like Hebrews and Phoenicians.

Implying that Jesus was just like Malcolm X, or Martin Luther King might play well in the media, but, it isn't true. Besides, Malcolm X was vary, very gay. NO disrespect, but, hey, he was gay as hell.

Jesus was a well known "Zealot" in the tradition of the Maccabees. His dramatic entrance into Jerusalem and subsequent "Bar Fight" with the money changers at the Temple resulted in his arrest and crucifixion.

His (Jesus) time as an Essene, close to where the discovery of the Nag Hammadi Scrolls were discovered are of great interest to those folks, interested in the Mysticism of Religions everywhere.

He spoke Aramaic, but was ethnically Semitic.

Nag Hammadi scrolls discovered in Egypt. Gnostic Christian if memory serves me.

There is no historical evidence that Jesus ever existed. The two known references are suspected of being forgeries.

They are making up religion as they go. Remember Christ,threw Hustlers,out of the Temple. He would throw them out as well.

I see some Kansas City Atheists are logging in with their bigoted remarks.

And displaying incredible ignorance of history.

How come the atheists get to run Hate Sites and get a pass?
