I'm not on Facebook, but I can link you to this man's Facebook page. At least I hope that link is a permanent one. If not, the story is also at HuffPost. Like that story did, I want to highlight this part from that post:Man outside of a mosque in Texas this morning pic.twitter.com/bsbfW1PkA9— Charles Finch (@CharlesFinch) November 26, 2016
It wasn’t about demonstrating my outrage to right-wing drivers driving down Esters Road in front of the mosque. I can never, and will never, change any of the haters. It’s not about them. Not this time, and not here. This was about binding up the wounded. About showing compassion and empathy for the hurting and fearful among us. Or, in some Christian traditions, this was about washing my brother’s feet. This was about my religion, not theirs. And, it was about what I think I must do as an American when our way of life is threatened. Targeting people for their religion not only threatens our way of life, it is the polar opposite of our way of life.It's a fine message for Advent.
