For those who stand in the prophetic and apostolic traditions of the Scriptures, no neutrality is in fact admissible. These people hear the groans of the suffering, take a stance, and act. . . The irreversible history of injustice weighs on the shoulders of the present. . .Justice demands not a perfect map of the existing world, but nothing less than the undoing of the world, past and present, and the creation of a new world.
