Friday Links Round Up: The Simpsons. Ethnic Studies. Walter Brueggemann.

By Jeannie Choi 10-22-2010

The Simpsons. Ethnic Studies. Walter Brueggemann. Here's a little round up of links from around the web you may have missed this week:

  • The Vatican says The Simpsons are Catholic.
  • "I'm Undocumented": These young people are coming out "illegal" and challenging unjust laws.
  • "While God's gifts are welcome, in fact they do disrupt. God's gift of truth disrupts our systemic mendacity that denies our lethal social practices. God's gift of generosity contradicts our parsimonious selfishness. God's gift of mercy interrupts our hard-hearted indifference. God's gift of justice exposes our systemic injustice. God's gifts amount to an inconvenient reality among us; they remind us that what we have come to regard as 'normal' continues a deep abnormality in which we may have no complacency."
    --Walter Brueggemann, Living the Word.

Have a lovely weekend.
