Like many other First World countries Australia struggles now to incorporate people who are refugees--immigrants of a sort, fleeing from economic, religious, or political persecution. We attended an Evensong in Melbourne in St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral.
Then in Adelaide at the Immigration Museum I was pleased to see a good deal of attention given to how immigrants from white Europe treated the native peoples here--those whom we call Aborigines. Lots of exhibits detailed exclusionary attempts and attempts to forcefully kidnap little kids and take them to missionary schools, often Anglican, to teach them how to be Brits. And this entailed separating them from their parents--often with violence. How tragic--people are still healing from it.
This is the Australian experience. It might help us think about how we do things in our own nation.
