Breaking Through

by Rev. Sloan Letman IV 04-23-2021

“This moral crisis is bigger than one instance, one executive order. We have to take this to the macro level. We have to see the pattern, and we have to see how it fits into the whole story. And that means we have to acknowledge the value system that created this. We have to acknowledge that segregation inspired South African apartheid. The same value system that ripped children from their homes in Africa, and that ripped children from home in the plantations, and that ripped children from their families on Indian reservations, and ripped children from their homes and put them in foster care systems, is the same system that is ripping children away from their homes by ICE.”   

Preached at the Cathedral of the Beloved.
