    Rev. Barber’s new book The Third Reconstruction was only an inkling when he gave this interview, but it gives you an idea of the historical framework that guides his activism today:

    Powerful piece! I do feel that this is another step of the concentrated NC effort turning into a national movement. I agree with Orville’s remarks, we need everyone on this journey, not just the religiously faithful. If this movement stays about morality in public policy and not just religious morality, the message is going to spread and will have wide appeal.

    Orville and George, I will forward your messages for Rev. Barber to the field director of the North Carolina NAACP, Laurel Ashton.

    Sir, Reverend Barber, I think Human Rights would be a vehicle to help everyone understand your message. Secular Ethics is essentially (in Spirit) also achieving the same goals. I feel the need to point out Humanism is the goal and religion is part of the journey, but not the only part… But Spirituality seems to be the point where all sciences, all tools, all beliefs find common ground. Thanks.

    Good morning, Reverend, Dr. Barber:

    I fully concur with your sermon concerning Equality Under the Law. Please consider and share your opinions regarding my recently written sonnet, viz.: THE AMERICAN DREAM

    By what laws and rights believed forbade, But fate of wrong and evil hate, By all they shun or hide in dread; But by innocence, truth, and good relate.

    Wholesome’s road’s at sometime curved and others slow; Along its course by blame, temptation, liars, greed or wrath, Waylaying; emptying honesty’s purse, to barter it back for woe: A toll of their bearers’ worth: enslaved, to walk that path.

    Opportunity’s promise—one’s own dream—is used as bait; Re-packaged to mask thieves’ boasts of freedom’s proffer: A debt-masquerade as gold (paid by queues behind who wait); For all who’d trade away everything their lives can offer.

    Thus, the rue thru naïveté’s dreamer’s pining: the quest of their lives’ ardent eying; But if perchance wakened; this nightmare too awaits: trading ayes for smoother blinding. ©Copyright George Thompson, Sr. 2014
