For some, the whole Soulforce Equality Ride that is coming to ACU is a subject they are sick and tired of hearing about. That's okay, we all have things that we just do not take interest in, or simply are just tired of all the talk being about it.
But, I find this topic still really interesting (maybe it is because I don't live in Abilene anymore, so I haven't "heard" as much about it as some), but whatever the case may be, for those who are still willing to lend me their ear, I would like to point you in the direction of Matthew's blog. Matthew is the individual who's blog I pretty much pointed you in the direction of last time I discussed this topic, but this time I want you to go take advantage of something he so graciously provided the non-chapel attending audiences with, and that is the actual recording of the Dr. Money chapel speech made in reference to Soulforce.
I am totally impressed by Matthew for two main reasons: 1.) He was able to link a sound track up to his blog for the public to listen too (yes, easily impressed, I know, but I LOVE it!), and 2.) (more importantly) He took the time and effort to make sure what he was putting on his blog could be backed up with the hard truth and how things really happened. He leaves the READER (or in this case, the LISTENER) up to drawing their own conclusions. I appreciate that!
I want to put more thoughts on this whole situation down, but I can't do them right now because, well honestly, I'm making for a REALLY long lunchbreak from work right now to write this blog...HA! But I do TOTALLY recommend for those of you who are not tired of this topic and who are as intrigued by it as I am, do take the time to give an ear to the chapel speech made by Dr. Money.
Matthew has two links on his blog to it. One being the short "controversial" clapping part, and one being the link to the entire speech by Dr. Money. Yes, the entire speech is longer (about 15 minutes or so), but I enjoyed it while I ate lunch, and I think it is a very well put speech by Dr. Money, so listen if you can get the time.
