Was MLK Funny?
Think how Jesus occasionally used mockery to get his point across.
Think how Martin poked fun at committees and institutionalized do-gooding in his sermon "The Three Dimensions of Life" (in the section about the Good Samaritan).
I would like to share stories of the way the civil rights leaders and activists used humor and outrage and mockery in their tactics, but I don't have enough evidence that they did. PeaceBangers, can you help me (and I'm heading to the bookstore later today)...?
I begin to realize that one of the things that most deeply disgusts me about the Bush Administration is how bloody seriously they take themselves. I want to lift up the saving grace of humor within the realistic response of outrage when we deal with oppression(s).
