Speaking of the UK, there is a very good article in the current edition of The Tablet titled, The Only Thing That Matters, on the subject of the George Floyd killing written by Bryan N. Massingale. Massingale, a priest, is professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham, New York, and author of Racial Justice and the Catholic Church (Orbis). If you don’t have an account, you can register for free. As well, Massingale has pieces in both America magazine and National Catholic Reporter within the past few days. The protests that have expanded beyond the U.S include a component of self reflection on systemic racism in those countries, including law enforcement based racism. Canada, for example, like other countries that have roots in the British Empire, is a post colonial white settler society. Protesters in the UK have been very clear about systemic racism there as well.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
