SLATE: The Lawyers Showed Up
And because we still live in a country where the law matters, they won.
(Not completely, of course, but they're fighting back.)

VOX: Thousands of people are protesting Trump’s immigration order at airports across America


And here is the Pope, speaking in October:

Pope Francis: You can’t defend Christianity by being ‘against refugees and other religions’

I also found it especially apt that today's gospel was the Beatitudes. (Full readings here)

I want to quote everything, so go read...

OK, just the psalm:

The LORD keeps faith forever,
secures justice for the oppressed,
gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets captives free.

The LORD gives sight to the blind;
the LORD raises up those who were bowed down.
The LORD loves the just;
the LORD protects strangers.

The fatherless and the widow the LORD sustains,
but the way of the wicked he thwarts.
The LORD shall reign forever;
your God, O Zion, through all generations. Alleluia.

Ps 146, 6-10

If you want to cheer yourself up, sign this petition (if you're in the UK) and then sit back and watch the counter continually update:

Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.

At this moment of posting (9.39pm) it stands at 726,570 signatures.

I doubt it will have any effect on anything, but at least it's a good way to show that We The People are not on board with Theresa May's 'love-in'.
