School Desegregation: Statement and Supporting Documents.
Indiana Interreligious Commission on Human Equality, Indianapolis.
Racial segregation is contrary to the basic tenets of the Judaic Christian faith. When educational systems segregate children on the basis of race, a moral imperative exists to correct such situations. There is a need for churches and congregations to go beyond Constitutional and legal requirements and to address school desegregation as a moral imperative. There are theological and moral mandates for integration, but the Constitutional issues are also important. Both Constitutional and religious principles are violated so long as racial segregation is allowed to continue. Community leadership in desegregation is important. (GC)
