Draadje over wat de initiatiefnemers van de #NashvilleVerklaring volgens mij op het oog hebben. Volgens mij slaan veel analyses de plank enigszins mis, bv de RTL die spreekt over 'geradicaliseerde christenen' #Nashville
De Nashvilleverklaring is aan de ene kant weinig nieuws, de afwijzing van homorelaties in orthodox-protestantse kringen is zo oud als de weg naar Geneve (en vergeet niet dat dit een kleine rechterflank is van de kerken waar alleen mannen zoiets mogen ondertekenen).

#Midterms2018 : plus de 39 millions d’électeurs ont voté par anticipation. C'est un record historique : en 2014, ce chiffre était de 20,5 millions. v/@ElectProject electproject.org/early_2018

Thread: Some rare good immigration news came today. Last yr, as part of a deal to get Iraq off the list of countries in Muslim Ban 1.0, ICE began rounding up 100s of Iraqi nationals who had old, unexecuted deportation orders—nearly all of whom came as refugees. #NashvilleKurds /1
Nashville is home to the largest population of Kurds outside of #Kurdistan. At least 12 and as many as 20 #NashvilleKurds were targeted. amp.tennessean.com/amp/379582001 ICE sought to detain these men in far-flung, for-profit prisons and deport them without hearing to torture/death /2
