Seminarian Marches in "Occupy Wall St." Protest; Says Jesus Would Back 99 Percent of US Society

The Spero Forum website reports today (October 11, 2011) that Rix Thorsell -- a seminarian wearing a clerical collar -- has been marching with other members of Brooklyn's Greenpoint Reformed Church in an "Occupy Wall Street" protest that has captured national and international attention.

"Jesus stood with 99 percent (of society that is not wealthy)," said Thorsell -- a student at New York's Union Theological Seminary.

Thorsell -- along with members of his church and seminary -- are among people of faith who have joined the protests in lower Manhattan.

The protests are against what activists are calling "corporate greed" and growing economic inequity in the United States.
