Father Louie Vitale, Pastor of St. Boniface Church

(Excerpt) I just want to say to those of you who are from maybe my background -- a Judeo-Christian tradition -- If you want to honor the scriptures we have that talk about loving your neighbor and bearing one another's burdens, then we better get off our duffs and do something, or put away our bibles and forget it.

We have to be outraged! And we have to get out and show our rage in non-violent and peaceful ways, and put a stop to this terrible, terrible racism that's going on and the abuse and oppression that destroying families and simply destroying lives.

Need technical help with viewing these videos?
