Friends,

 

A new blog post titled “Rescuing Romans 13:1-7: How do we answer
authoritarian use of these words?” at
https://universalistfriends.org/weblog/rescuing-romans-131-7.

 

Amid the wide global turmoil stirred by America’s current flexing of
authoritarian nationalism, a deeper spiritual turmoil has been brought to
light by the current administration’s use of the apostle Paul’s Letter to
the Romans.

 

There is a willful blindness at work in this government and its supporters,
a steadfast unwillingness to acknowledge—or care—that the families fleeing
to the United States from Central America are refugees seeking asylum from
violence in their homelands.
