More pinching to check – wishful dream or real? This group (two groups – and more!) from inside America.
This is every bit as welcome news as is the stand taken by the Canadian Confederation of National Trade Unions (here).
Both the Canadian and American groups demonstrate INclusive, rather than exclusive, understanding of humanity. How long have we waited for these rising voices!!
A tough new bill targeting illegal immigrants in Indiana has several faith traditions speaking up in protest.
…”Signatories of the compact include Mennonites, representatives of local Catholic dioceses, the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church and the Jewish Community Relations Council, along with business representatives and other laypeople….”
From AOL, read full article at Mennonites, Presbyterians Oppose Indiana Immigration Bill (SB 590).
Are new leaders emerging, turning us toward human promise in the 21st Century? Are two news stories in two days a hint of more to come?
The groups of today’s story might closely match what I would want, or not. A few may have more ‘business’ interest as motivation than I would hope. But they certainly are headed in a most re-assuring direction. All humanity, all life, needs renewed vision, guided by inclusion!!
Deep gratitude to Mennonites and Presbyterians and all Indiana groups taking this stand!!
