Sunday Night Miscellany: Christian Protest Strategies #Brazil #Merica

I'm going to share this on all social media, but I wanted to share it here first.

I have been following the Instagram account of @antoniocarloscosta, ever since I got back to the US. Since we left Brazil, the entire country has broken out in protests.

The burgeoning middle class has discovered it has rights, and it's beginning to exercise them.

Anyway, Pastor Antonio Carlos Costa leads a group called “Rio de Paz (river of peace).” His group has been organizing in the midst of all these protests – including protests along Copacabana Beach.

Above, you'll see Rio de Paz protesting at the base of “Christ the Redeemer.” For my money, it is one of the greatest protest images I've ever seen. And, it's organized by a Christian group.

The other photo is unfortunate. It's a Christian protesting in this country.

Note the difference.
