“At the cross God got justice and we got righteousness. So now, in the church, we who are righteous ought to be found fighting for justice. . . . How is it that for so long American Christianity has had its finger on parsing the language of righteousness but its feet far from fighting injustice? And now, today, we are witnessing the emergence of a new generation of Americans that are fascinated with justice but they haven’t met the Author of righteousness.” – Charlie Edward Dates, MLK50 Conference
