In the Baptismal Covenant we are asked: “Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?” In a life dedicated to respecting and restoring dignity to others, we cannot help but be political, for human dignity is inseparable from adequate food, shelter, clean water, medical care, education, and respect, regardless of gender, orientation, race, religion or country of origin. And all of these are about the use, or abuse, of power.
