A meditation on this holy week for Christians: Jesus was not killed by sex workers, or the houseless, or LGBTQ people, or by menial laborers, or immigrants, or women. He was ordered to be crucified by a political leader at the behest of an organized and powerful group of religious clerics. A public execution that was then carried out by soldiers and armed guards of the ruling court in a fashion that was designed to humiliate both the accused and those who loved the accused. All of them were powerful men of prestige and authority. This is an important reminder today because, sadly, when it comes to justice, little has changed in 2000 years.
