The April issue is special in that the first half of the zine is the Haggadah for the Community Liberation Sedar that will be held at the Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center tomorrow evening. The Seder was organized by Jewish members of Mercy Junction’s worshiping community includes a vegan Passover meal while focusing on six forms of oppression from which we seek liberation. The six forms of oppression on which the Seder will focus are: Patriarchy, White Supremacy, Heterosexism, Xenophobia, Capitalism and Earth Destruction/Speciesism.
The Woven Dumpster artist Morgan Koch, creates each month’s front cover and designed the Our Lady of Holy Heretics as the logo for the zine. Holy Heretic editor Beth Foster describes Our Lady as a logo to “depict visually what we hope to create monthly in this little publication.”
Each month the zine’s goal is to inspire readers to create a more just world while seeking influence from faith traditions across time and around the world. Each issue of Holy Heretic includes a daily reading and center article around the monthly theme.
Holy Heretic collaborates with activists, people of faith, writers and artists to discuss issues of equality, justice and oppression around topics ranging from the economy, housing and food to the environment, animals and culture — all with a creative, sometimes snarky, sometimes provocative, always loving edge. The zine seeks to bring together the voices of individuals from different faith traditions, as well as those who are not religious, to comment on the calling of people of conscience to work toward justice.
