The Church has been complicit in so many crimes against humanity, in the name of their god.

It’s past time to face up to mistakes and to rectify these abuses. Time to be authentically engaged in sharing the genuine message of Jesus and His advocacy for social justice expressed in the Sermon on the Mount.

As atonement, the Seminary should aid in a lobbying effort for a comprehensive reparations program for black American descendants of persons enslaved in the United States.

Signing because Southern Seminary
Did not and does not lead by Christian
Example. Additionally, it’s known the current regime did not treat staff and and associates with respect and dignity when they took over. Even with differences of opinion there is a proper and Christian way
To treat others. They should be held to a higher standard.
In this case of acknowledging wrong doing regarding treatment of African Americans
Is just not enough. Showing remorse through Good deeds is a start.

Thanks for adding your voice.
