Denying the Resurrection

“Without equivocation or hesitation I fully and completely admit that I deny the resurrection of Christ.  This is something that anyone who knows me well could tell you, and I am not afraid to say it publicly, no matter what some people may think… I deny the resurrection of Christ every time I do not serve at the feet of the oppressed, each day that I turn my back on the poor; I deny the resurrection of Christ when I close my ears to the cries of the downtrodden and lend my support to an unjust and corrupt system. However there are moments when I affirm the resurrection, few and far between as they are.  I affirm it when I stand up for those who are forced to live on their knees, when I speak for those who have had their tongues torn out, when I cry for those who have no more tears left to shed.” – Peter Rollins

If you’re interested in hearing more from Rollins, you’re in luck! His “I believe in the Insurrection” tour is coming to Nashville Monday night, April 5th at the Flying Saucer. Doors open at 7pm and the event starts at 8pm.
