  1. Note that the banner is a GCC/IBT union-made product (“Graphic Communications Conference/International Brotherhood of Teamsters”) so in addition to supporting Black Lives Matter, the church is supporting the Teamsters.

  2. No one goes to church anymore anyway, Phil, so who cares? Also a quick google search indicates that the Commonwealth is close to the least religious state in the US — so they are probably just trolling for business and hope that by appealing to the half witted and half baked they can fill the collection plate.

  3. How dare people express their desire to not be assholes. You’d be more at home with the Westboro Baptist Church no doubt.

    • They have a sincere desire to hang out with people of color in a diverse neighborhood. They just accidentally paid $1.5 million more for a similar house in a community where the nearest person of color is at least 20 minutes away via car. (Said community also successfully obstructed the extension of the metro system to their fair suburb on the grounds that it would bring urban undesirables into their midst.)

      This is clearly not relevant to anything. Not long ago you commented about a small Black Lives Matter poster at Lutheran Church near Harvard Square. You claimed that the small size bothered you so much that you used Google to look up the fact that there were high ranking officials in Nazi Germany who were Lutherans. Now the topic of great interest is a large banner, this time in a town with no black population. Clearly, the location or size of such banners and posters is not relevant to your concerns.

      Since you’re so fond of posing questions, look at it this way. If a person objects to the expression of a certain sentiment, what is the most like reason for that objection?

    • >> If a person objects to the expression of a certain sentiment,

      The most likely reason is definitely racism.
      Since Phil and Vince failed to agree on the sentiment expressed in this blog posting, at least one of them must be a racist!

  4. Another Massachusett resident here.

    The affluent town next to us occassionally brings in speakers from Black Lives Matter to give lectures and affirm their woke credentials. I did a search and the town has less than 0.10% Black residents. If they really believed what they say they do, you would think they would do something about that.

    I’m convinced that if you were to stick around after the BLM lectures you would see the local police escorting the speakers to the the town line after they have finished.

  5. Speaking of Black lives mattering, Jeremiah had some thoughts on teaching good to the wicked:

    Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil. [Jer. 13:23]

    • Not sure I follow, what does BLM have to do w/ people that are accustomed to do evil?

      Or you’re implying that police are naturally wicked ( ACAB ) so there’s no point in advocating against racial violence?
