Rebellion Manifesto Author, "All Alone"

Stéphane Hessel
Despite evictions around the country, Occupy continues actions on a daily basis around the USA and the world. Religious organizations and spiritually-interested institutions are a part of Occupy,
but one thing I have noticed in New York City at Occupy Wall Street is the relative absence of Catholic pastoral workers and other Catholic-identified leaders.
I wonder if this is the case in other parts of the USA and around the world. This morning, for example, I was at a meeting of Occupy Faith NYC, a collection of leaders from many religious traditions and social justice organizations in support of Occupy Wall Street, and out of approximately 45 in attendance, there were just a few from Catholic churches or organizations.

More leftist nonsense from Tom B. Is he deliberately ignoring or obscuring the seediness of the occupy theater protests and encampments?
