The 16th Street Baptist Church’s pastor stressed Sunday that all social issues could be solved with church.
Church could play a more important factor in ridding of social issues on Marquette University's campus. The Rev. Arthur Price Jr. stated that the church helped with school integration and civil rights.
The pastor said that with such practices as fundraising and listening to people within the community, today’s church members have just as much strength today, even without political help.
“(God) didn’t give my authority to donkeys and elephants,” the pastor said. “It is the church that gets folks off (etc.)”
And the pastor exhausted in his speech that people can't be helped by the Oprah Winfrey or Dr Phil’s Show. He says that with “power, love and a sound mind,” people had the power to defeat any oppression.”
“I got victory,” the pastor pointed his index finger to the ceiling. "Victory over (social issues).”
