Rev. Dr. Bruce Wright of Refuge Ministries in St. Petersburg Florida believes in socialist revolution and that "right-wing teachings contradict Christ."
He recently wrote:
- 2019 must be a year of uprising and action. We must collectivly come together and take to the streets. We must organize, we must strategize, we must look at what must be done to change the tide of where things are going in this country and globally.
- The open growth and validation of White Power and White Supremacy has fueled all kinds of “isms”, Racism, Sexism, Classism, Homophobia, Ableism continues to growth. This current administration of the “Orange Julius Caesar” is the culmination of years of the Corporate parties of the Democrats and Republicans love affair with Greed, Capitalism, and Corporate money, as well as the War machine and it’s Imperial ventures around the globe
- Movements must emerge... But, they must be all inclusive and not anti-immigrant. They must be movement’s from the bottom up, led and informed by oppressed classes of people. We must unite with all oppressed classes of people and build a movement rooted and grounded in solidarity,We must dismantle Capitalism, Imperialism and all forms of bigotry by creating a shared community... Revolt is necessary and it must happen, there is no time left. Movements have always changed things, people uniting have always changed things. Revolution now! If not now, then when?
