CWN Editor's Note: “Assuring order and prosperity in Europe at the cost of chaos on its external borders is incompatible with the ethical convictions on which the Europe we live in today was built,” the Catholic bishops and Lutheran leaders said in their statement. “Claiming to protect Christian values or communities by shutting out those who seek safe refuge from violence and suffering is unacceptable, undermines Christian witness in the world and raises up national borders as idols.”
