The Hobbits approve
There is a theological tension between God’s justice and God’s mercy.
Whether we prefer to emphasize God’s justice or God’s mercy has a lot to do with whether we recognize ourselves as victims or oppressors, as sinners or as those hurt by the sins of others.
The Los Angeles-based Annenberg Foundation has revealed it purchased a set of 24 Hopi and Apache masks at a controversial Paris auction and will return them to tribes in northeastern Arizona who had tried get the sale blocked.
After an unsuccessful law suit filed by lawyers for advocacy group Survival International, who argued the masks were the cultural property of the Hopi and San Carlos Apache tribes, the Annenberg Foundation swooped up twenty-four of the masks “for the sole purpose of returning them to their rightful owners,” it said on Wednesday.
The philanthropic organization paid $530,000 when the items went under the hammer on Monday.
