Quoted in the NY Times

I achieved a tiny measure of fame/notoriety over the weekend by being quoted in the Times. I referred to Trinity Church’s accommodation of “the marginal group of protestors” of Occupy Wall Street.

The word, “marginal” seems what is most likely to get me in trouble. The issue for church people: does this movement express the prophetic Gospel and speak truth to power or is it merely the media inflation of a ragtag collection of malcontents and publicity seekers?

As I have said before, there are many bad guys in the financial industry who have gotten away with high crimes and who should be punished. OWS, however, seems to have done little to bring them to justice. —J. Douglas Ousley
