Acadêmicos das áreas de estudos bíblicos e de estudos da religião estão se posicionando contra a polêmica ordem executiva de Trump conhecida como “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States”.
O Professor James F. McGrath está reunindo em seu blog declarações de pessoas e grupos contra tal medida.
Ele diz: "If it has been disheartening to see the actions of America’s president and his supporters, and the harmful effects on people that those actions have had on refugees and other extremely vulnerable constituencies, it has been encouraging to see so many people of different backgrounds being united in their outspokenness against these policies. I plan to share as many examples as I can of people and groups speaking out as I become aware of here on this blog, and in particular those from groups that I have either a direct or tangential connection with".
