Several bloggers I follow have been or will be doing the 30 Hour Famine (an excellent experiential opportunity for youth). Any time the issue of responding to world hunger comes up, I'm reminded of my favorite evangelical, Tony Campolo, and this priceless quote:
“I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.”
And for a further understanding of why I, a progessive Christian, would love to sit down and chat with Tony, see the video below.
