NCC Condemns Obscene Remarks by President Trump

NCC Condemns Obscene Remarks by President Trump

President Trump’s obscene remarks, reported yesterday — in which he described Haiti, El Salvador, and African countries as “s***thole countries” — were deeply disturbing. The National Council of Churches unequivocally condemns these statements.

Further, President Trump’s stated preference for immigrants from nations such as Norway, combined with numerous other comments he has made over past years, reveals a deep-seated racism that is unacceptable.  These attitudes must be publicly rejected by all people of faith.  The very soul of our nation is at stake.

As Dr. King said, “A time comes when silence is betrayal.” We cannot remain silent at a time like this in the life of our nation

A note from Steve Davis, Board of Directors
Arizona Interfaith Power and Light

Three Great Loves: Children, Neighbor, Creation. It’s been my experience that one love at a time can sometimes be more than enough. Given the dismantling of environmental priorities and our nation’s administration exempting the U.S. from the international Paris Climate Accord, I offer my serenade for Love # 3: Love of Creation.

Spiritual Leaders Return from Bears Ears National Monument, Calling on Trump Administration to Respect Native American Heritage and Tribal Sovereignty

Spiritual Leaders Return from Bears Ears National Monument, Calling on Trump Administration to Respect Native American Heritage and Tribal Sovereignty

In the middle of Native American Heritage Month, nearly 30 spiritual leaders converged on a threatened Native American heritage landscape: Bears Ears National Monument.
