America has become the Catholic Church of five hundred years ago. Our culture has become arrogant and is characterized by shallowness, division and complacency. We talk at each other and seem wholly incapable of genuinely listening. We've seen the hope and change that our leaders promise, but their failure to follow through sickens us. The name-calling, pettiness, finger-pointing and hypocritical double standards are out of control.
As such, America is in need of its own Martin Luther, an individual who is humble yet courageous enough to stand up and speak out against the status quo. America is ripe for the kind of transformation that can only come when there is genuine courage marked by true humility.
