9 - Time for some new statues and monuments!
Episode 9 (recorded 4 July 2020). Following President Trump's speech at Mount Rushmore on 3 July 2020, Bishop Jack Lumanog responds to the President's tone deaf rhetoric and his odd commitment to preserving "our" heroes, "our" values, "our" most sacred memorials. The Bishop discusses the history of Stone Mountain (outside of Atlanta) and proposes taking down every Confederate statue and monument and offers his suggestions for their replacements: General and 18th President Ulysses S. Grant, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, The Greensboro Four, The Little Rock 9 (especially depicting 15 year old Elizabeth Eckford), Rosa Parks, The Freedom Riders (especially Congressman John Lewis). Happy Independence Day, from Pod Bless Us with Bishop Jack Lumanog!
