The little woke church on the hill
The New Culture, West Los Angeles, and Gavin Newsom's grin
The small West Los Angeles church defines itself as “open to interpretation.”
Members may pray or not pray. They may believe in God, some other entity, or no God. They may read from any scripture or no scripture at all.
The scene shifted yesterday, when a dozen or so climate activists marched on the church in protest of incense burning, which “contributes to global warming,” one protester claimed.
Shortly thereafter, a SWAT team arrived and put the activists in shackles for obstructing cars attempting to exit the parking lot.
Apparently, one of the arrested protesters, a transgender man, managed to call a friend, and within an hour, a hundred PRIDE members arrived at the church, only to be met by a group of anti-gay Muslims who live in the neighborhood.
