Real Love Between Us

Rev. William Barber joined assembled clergy at New York’s City Hall yesterday.

God made human beings, because animals couldn’t vote. The moon could not vote. The sun could not vote, because they didn’t have the human quality of reciprocity and response.

The Lord said, “I’ve got to me make something that has the capacity to say ‘Yes’ or ‘No,’ otherwise I cannot be sure that there’s real love between us.

Therefore God made human beings and said the one thing they gotta have, in order to really be human beings, is the capacity to say “Yay” or “Nay.” And anybody who goes to work to suppress that quality in human beings is fighting against the very God that made us.
