By Gregory Tomlin, The Christian Examiner. The Presbyterian Church (USA), which has been hemorrhaging members since it began pressing for gay clergy and same-sex marriage almost a decade ago, is now aligning itself with a radical “social justice” group which demands the government pay reparations to all blacks in the form of free education and income.
IPMN itself is a social justice organization. Its chief spokesman, Bob Ross, associate professor of global cultural studies at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has written on the growth of “U.S. Imperialism” in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington. He said IPMN endorsed MBL because the struggle blacks in America face is the same as the struggle the Palestinians face for liberation from Israel.
“These justice struggles are linked in that the people of Palestine are in solidarity with black people in America struggling for freedom, justice and equality,” Ross said. “The black struggle and the Palestinian struggle for justice are not just parallels, but they’re struggles where there is an exchange of ideas.”
