In July, our lead organizer wrote an opinion editorial through the CBC's editorial section. You can view it here.
Churches are burning. Others are sprayed in orange and red with the haunting words: "We were children."
But these are small losses compared to thousands of graves of children. What are a few buildings, when the church is losing its spiritual legitimacy? Who in their right mind would turn for spiritual hope to institutions that preach love but participated in and hid the abuse and deaths of thousands of children at residential schools in Canada?
I am a person of faith and a member of the clergy. I'm left with a harsh question: In the face of genocide, can the churches save their own soul?
