In an ongoing national nightmare that got more terrifying in Minnesota, Louisiana and Texas, we can only call on the wisdom of our faith. Not all Oregonians or Americans share a devotion to Jesus, but surely “Love one another” and “Do not be afraid” are what everyone needs to hear now.
We also stand for love for Muslims. We stand for love for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered brothers and sisters. We stand for love for Latinos, Native Americans and all people of color. We stand for love for the incarcerated. We stand for love. Pure and simple.
