Statement of Solidarity with our Muslim Neighbors
Jesus said, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength and you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30-31
As members of the United Church of Hinesburg Missions and Social Justice Committee, we share a responsibility to speak to important moral and ethical issues facing our community and the broader world.
We are saddened and deeply disturbed by the wave of anti-Muslim sentiment that has been intensifying in our nation and strongly repudiate action that divides our nation and excludes our Muslim neighbors. We uphold the mission of our church to welcome, affirm and reconcile religious difference; open our doors to those who flee from countries that experience terror, persecution and war; and understand that our differences make us stronger as a community and a country. This is the very fiber on which our federated church and this nation are built.
We pledge to challenge phobias of any kind and wish to extend our hands in friendship to Muslims in our community and around the world.
We will not remain silent as the morals that inform our faith are marginalized for capital or political gain. Bigotry and discrimination have no place here.
In this spirit, we wish to express our deepest commitment to racial and religious diversity and reaffirm our commitment to work for justice, inclusion and equality for all our neighbors, wherever and whoever they may be.
