We at the United Church are greatly concerned about the rhetoric currently being offered by President Trump. In our view his recent comments such “as sending people back to where they came from” are clearly racist and simply unacceptable in today’s multicultural society. His message is at odds with our Christian Faith which teaches that we are all part of one family.
“We must all work harder to repair the fissures and polarization that are so prevalent in our societies today. We must nurture mutual understanding and invest in making diversity a success. And we must counter and reject political figures who exploit differences for electoral gain.” — UN Secretary-General António Guterres
