The Beattitudes

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
-- Matthew 5:3-10

Progressives: Doing God's work since 1517.

It really is amazing how Christian progressives are - although they seem to not be content with inheriting the Kingdom of God in death - they want to create the Kingdom here on earth.
