“Yesterday’s executive order targeting refugees and Muslims is an affront to the core values of the United States. Our country has always been a beacon of liberty, and we should not now close our doors to people fleeing violence, hate, oppression, or persecution. All of the world’s major religions affirm the moral imperative to welcome the stranger. Unitarian Universalist congregations welcome individuals of all backgrounds and beliefs. I mourn with all of those whose hopes of a better future have been dashed due to the actions of President Trump.” -The Rev. Peter Morales, President of the Unitarian Universalist Association
