Truth is, African American pastors have been engaged in the real civil rights battle for decades, fighting to end violence and respect human dignity in their communities, while largely ignored by the media.

At the absolute core of arguments over abortion and same-sex marriage, at the heart of the matter before other points of contention are made one way or the other… the presumption that we either have person/body dualism or we do not. Philosophers and scholars and other intellectuals have been debating that point for a very long time. But with laws changing the way they are, it’s time to move it front and center.
