Up to 10 Anglican churches around Australia are offering sanctuary to about 270 asylum-seeks at risk of being returned to Nauru in the wake of a failed High Court challenge.
Churchmen in Germany, however, are demanding fewer, having seen what it means to take in a million in a year:
“As a church we say that we need a reduction in the number of refugees,” Cardinal Reinhard Marx, chairman of the German Bishops’ Conference, told the Passauer Neue Presse daily.
Germany cannot “take in all the world’s needy,” Marx added.
The question of how to respond to the migrant crisis, he asserted, should not solely be a matter of “charity but also reason.”
