WIT: On Racial Injustice, Education, and Thomas Aquinas

WIT. (Women in Theology). A blog that came across my desk through friend Bridget O’Brien at Notre Dame.

Excerpt: ‎”We have made an idol out of private property, forgetting that the earth belongs not to those who claim it as theirs and build walls and fences to keep others out but to God. Certainly, if we follow Aquinas’ reasoning, we will see that, because Ms. Williams-Bolar’s children have been unjustly denied the means of their own flourishing, she was more than justified in “breaking the rules” in this case.”
