Do you hear the cries of the poor?

"If you shut your ear to the cry of the poor
You yourself will call and not be heard."

Proverbs 21:13

No health care.

Foreclosures.

Hunger in America.

Are the corporation bought politicians listening to the cries of the poor or the cries of the lobbyists who whine about their bottom lines?

As Unitarian Universalists we believe in things other than money. Things like justice, dignity, peace, equity, compassion, respect.

The problem is, the things we UUs believe in, there is no money in. Our voices dissipate in the hurricanes of greed and avarice.

Who will help the people?
