Refugees are a major concern in Australia at the moment and I recently read an interesting perspective on this issue on the Bible Society web site with the following title: So you think it’s a good idea to welcome refugees? Excuse me while I burst your bubble. By way of explanation there is an amusing little footnote to the article: “The title of this blog is deliberately provocative. It’s called irony.” The gist of the article is that we actually ought to show compassion to refugees.
It is a thought provoking article about whether our words match our actions. It can be read here.
