Along with dozens of faith organizations, Faith in Public Life helped organize the construction and delivery of the golden calf to New York.

It was a coming together both in prayer and in purpose.

Religious leaders from mosques, synagogues and churches in our area came to Zuccotti Park, they say not to support the Occupy Wall Street protesters, rather because they too are part of this movement.

“There can be no such thing as justice until there is economic justice,” Rev. Michael Ellick of Judson Memorial Church said.

Rev. Ellick led the procession.

The group carried a golden calf, they say a symbol of our spiritual poverty, a false idol.
