REV. JAMES FORBES: “Let’s put it in historic context. The separation of children, for me, goes back all the way to the slavery process, by which the natural way to make slaves and to dehumanize people was to break their family bonds. All I can think of: Here it goes again. Whether or not it is separating by incarceration on trumped-up charges or trivialized assessment of criminal penalties, or whether or not it’s separation on the basis of economics, or whether it’s separation on the basis of gerrymandering, or whether it’s separation on border rights, every time families are torn apart, the fabric of humanity has been rent. That’s why I’m saying what’s happening in Texas is only a kind of, as it were, sort of snapshot of what is wrong in the body politic in general.”
Reverend James Forbes, distinguished senior minister emeritus of the Riverside Church in New York, speaking this week in Washington D.C. at the Poor People’s Campaign for a Moral Revival.
