Retweeted by Brian DukesNowadays I try and refuse to tackle or talk about an issue related to a certain people group without real relationship and deep listening.
Retweeted by Brian DukesAs a black man, I had to repent to my family & people of color as a zealous pro life advocate for assuming I knew something they didn't.
Retweeted by Brian DukesTo be pro life should mean: -Anti Death Penalty -Anti Mass Incarceration -Pro Adoption & supporting the poor Otherwise your just pro babies.
Retweeted by Brian DukesIt's easy & intellectually lazy 2 only say "vote 4 pro life candidates". That logic avoids the underlying problems & keeps u tied to 1 party
Retweeted by Brian DukesI finding out that the major factors in fueling abortions is poverty helped me reshape and realign how I talked about the subject.
Retweeted by Brian DukesI need to publicly repent of something: In my 20's I used to open advocate & say "only vote for pro life candidates" I was dead wrong.
Retweeted by Brian DukesSo when u say "don't complain if u don't vote" you're basically saying the only way to create change in this country is via voting.
Retweeted by Brian DukesRegardless if one votes or not, they are still impacted by these government institutions and have a right to express dissent if they chose.
Retweeted by Brian DukesThe idea that one can't complain if they don't vote rests on the faulty assumption that the only "logical" change comes via electoral system
