Second Presbyterian votes to oppose English Only

secondpresThe governing body of the Second Presbyterian Church in Nashville has voted to oppose English Only.  From the Church’s statement published on Faith Leaders for All of Us:

The “English only” requirement does not acknowledge the linguistic diversity that has always characterized the U.S. (the result of many factors, including voluntary migration, conquest, employment policies, and compassion toward refugees) and continues today.

Furthermore it does not manifest the hospitality toward immigrants and refugees that we have every reason to expect in our public and private life.

We urge the citizens of Nashville to vote No on Amendment One.
