Wherever there is a fight so hungry people can eat

Wherever there is a fight so hungry people can eat

Henry Fonda as Tom Joad in The Grapes of Wrath:


And speaking of Tom Joad, here’s Bruce Springsteen and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine signing about his ghost. A song that includes these lines:

He pulls his prayer book out of a sleepin’ bag

The preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag

He’s waitin’ for the time when the last shall be first and the first shall be last

In a cardboard box ‘neath the underpass

Tom Morello is a modern day prophet - a voice calling out in a world of unfettered vampire capitalism.

I love the Tom Joad speech! It is one of two passages from literature that I've reposted on Facebook with the preface " Tho Good News of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to . .

(The other passage was a line from James Joyce's Ulysses)

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
