Due to the most recent compassionless murder of George Floyd, many [cities] people in the country are agitated to the point of peaceful and destructive protest. The #blacklivesmatters movement has gained new momentum in the advocacy for human rights and affirmative action. 

The situation seems to have [arguably] sensitized many people across the globe. People from all races, nations, and cultures are unifying to stand against blatant disregard for the life and wellbeing of African American members of this nation. The situation seems to be yet another that will be classified as one that political and legal partisanship and understanding can cure. Tech Talking Religion begs to differ.

As believers that God is ultimately in control of all things, our position is that these (and many other) occurrences are part of God's plan of redemption and is primarily being dealt with by using the ineffective methods that are not only exacerbating the situation but miss the mark entirely.  

Where is the Christian church in all this? What are their responsibilities and what is their answer to the possible solution to this kind of injustice? Take a look at this YouTube video on the Dum Diversas. (A decree that basically lawfully allows the "said kingdom" to enslave and mistreat those considered "non Christian")

Today we'll have a frank - and hopefully - fruitful discussion concerning what, if any, responsibility the 17th-century church had in the perpetration and what the current church prescribes as the solution of this degradation of human society. We welcome your calls, text, comments.
