Northern California Bishop Beisner responds to President Trump’s Executive Order banning refugees

Dear Friends in Christ:

Rabbi Rick Jacobs, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, recently said that this executive order “will be remembered by history together with the Dred Scott decision and the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II as governmental actions most antithetical to American values. We will resist its implementation by any means available to us.”

To which I say, Amen. And in my judgment it is antithetical to Christian values also. I invite you to join me in opposing it, and in making your opposition known. I say this in the hope that together we might uphold core principles above mere politics.

Yours in Christ,

+Barry
