Gary Clark Jr. - If Trouble Was Money
An Evangelical leader who found his calling in the Civil Rights movement? A Pentecostal pastor organizing against mass incarceration? Far from the monolith the media portrays, Evangelicals aren’t all right-wingers and fundamentalists. They are diverse, complex, and undergoing change. Many are fighting for justice.
Summits on Tenth, a new Internet video series produced by AlterNet and the Nathan Cummings Foundation, features conversations that blast through conventional thinking on pressing contemporary issues. The first episode, “Evangelicals Building a Just America,” brings you Reverend Dr. Joel C. Hunter and Pastor Michael McBride —two dynamic church leaders that defy the public image of Evangelicals.
Simon Greer, CEO of the Nathan Cummings Foundation, uses his skills as an experienced organizer and leader to bring out some surprising insights from the Reverend and the Pastor.
Check out excerpts and the full video on the Summits on Tenth YouTube channel. What these leaders had to say may surprise and inspire you; it did for us. Thank you in advance for watching and sharing. Please stay tuned for future Summits on Tenth episodes, which will tackle a variety of provocative topics, including the role and impact of fracking for natural gas in our energy debate.

During a debate between Senator Margaret Sitte & Dr. Kristen Cain about the abortion restriction bills in North Dakota, Sen. Sitte makes a litle slip.
She stumbles and admits that outside interests are behind the unconstitutional abortion bans in the state and are willing to spend MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to make sure that people in North Dakota won’t have the right to an abortion.
Watch when she’s called out on trying to lie her way out of it.
As if there was ever any doubt.
