The woman who first used the phrase “black lives matter” and the woman who created the black lives matter hashtag ARE the same women who created the official BLM organization, which is very anti-male, anti-family, and against basic Christian teachings in many ways.
So, even though I did read the article, I heartily disagree with the bishop. Catholics should neither embrace nor repeat the BLM slogan with all of its history and baggage. Would you suggest we try to rehabilitate the hammer and sickle or swastika? Of course not; that would be absurd!
Aren’t black lives important? Of course they are! That’s why embracing this BLM slogan is dangerous…the organization sows division and promotes practices that the Church can NEVER condone; to top it off, they do nothing to help the black community.
So, time to come up with a new slogan.
