Chief Justice Gants’s Remarks to the Islamic Society of Boston

As a counterweight to the Trumpism that I decried in a recent post, I want to draw your attention to a speech that the Chief Justice of our Supreme Judicial Court, Ralph Gants, made at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. The Chief Justice reached out to the ISBCC and asked for the opportunity to address the congregation. His speech is short on flashiness and long on American (and Massachusetts) values—a great response to much of the nonsense we’ve had to hear recently on how the United States should treat its Muslim citizens. Well done, Chief Justice Gants!
