Last semester, Samuel Molik was studying church history at Oral Roberts University.
This semester, he has taken on a new challenge: helping organize and lead Occupy Tulsa.
Molik said his theological beliefs led directly to his desire to help organize the local protest movement.
“One of the primary lessons of Christian theology, the life of Jesus, the Gospel and the church, is to defend those who can’t defend themselves and to stand against injustice,” Molik said. “That means not just physical military violence, but also to stand against oppression no matter what form it takes, whether it be social or economic.”
