Culture Wars/Current Controversies

White NC Cops & Civilians Wash Black Protesters’, Faith Leaders’ Feet … Ask for Forgiveness

It’s not surprising this would happen in North Carolina. Footwashing is considered to be a sacrament (like Baptism or Eucharist) in some really, really low rent Protestant denominations (whose members are almost always poor whites or poor blacks). But it is interesting to see a practice that is often associated with extreme fundamentalism or low-brow evangelicalism being fused with “wokeness” culture. I’ve often said that “wokeness” is Christianity minus a Christ, and here it is. Although I suspect these folks also believe in actual Christianity as well. Not that I begrudge anyone their religious worship. “Woke” Christian cops and black activists can have their footwashing ritual and atheists can have their Sunday Assemblies.
