BRAVO ON YOUR special issue on the church and labor ("Good Works," September-October 1998). One omission was any mention of the Labor Party, an alternative to the twin parties of big business. The slogan at the Labor Party's 1996 founding convention was, "The bosses have two parties. Now we have one of our own." For the first time in some 70 years, a party now exists that will fight for the rights of working women and men. For more information, contact the Labor Party at P.O. Box 53177, Washington, DC 20009.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
