Dear God. READ. Situation under MPP where we are returning migrants to in places like Nuevo Laredo is untenable for them. Our Government is blatantly circumventing our own asylum laws to effectively deport migrants into chaos. Mexican govt is now assisting. The Wheel is grinding.
Bonhoeffer: “3 possible ways in which the church can act toward the state.” 1) “ask the state whether its actions are legitimate and in accordance with its character as state, i.e. it can throw the state back on its responsibilities.” blog.acton.org/archives/1321-…
2) “aid the victims of state action. The church has an unconditional obligation to the victims of any ordering of society, even if they do not belong to the Christian community.”
3) “not just to bandage the victims under the wheel, but to put a spoke in the wheel itself. Such action would be direct political action, and is only possible and desirable when the church sees the state fail in its function of creating law and order.” blog.acton.org/archives/1321-…
