About This Issue

We have taken on religious subjects before, most recently Donald Wagner’s April-May 2016 Link “Protestantism’s    Liberal/Mainline Embrace of Zionism.”

To my knowledge, though, we have never taken on the    subject of God Himself —  or is that Herself?   Itself?
 
Already I’m in trouble.

To guide us through this minefield, we turned to one of our own board members Edward Dillon.  Ed is a priest of the Catholic diocese of Rochester, N.Y.  He holds a postgraduate degree in biblical studies from the Pontifical Biblical Institute of Rome.  Following years of teaching scripture, including 15 years of working with prisoners in the Philadelphia area, Ed now helps out at a parish in upstate New York, which encompasses five village churches and the state university of New York at Geneseo.

This is Ed’s third feature article for The Link.  His 1983 article focused on the plight of Palestinians in Israeli prisons; his 2010 article was about olive trees and the Palestinian farmers who cultivate them.  These, and all our articles going back to 1968 are available on our website: www.ameu.org.
