As sad as this seems to be, it is actually worse. Today there would be those in the crowd who would be heckling Jesus and accusing him of socialism, pandering to the poor for votes, and questioning both his ethics and his motives.
And the saddest part is that much (if not most) of this criticism would be coming from those claiming to follow him…right wing evangelicals.
I do not find this remarkable. I find it remarkably sad. I am deeply ashamed of the image our country now presents to the rest of the world. The acceptance of such corruption and the glorification of such immorality is just incomprehensible to me. The blind acceptance of the sheer brutishness of this man sickens me.
Defending actions that are obviously and inherently evil is not easy. The excuse of obeying the law does not fly. And blaming your actions on others also doesn’t work. Just ask all the Nazis who were tried for war crimes at Nuremburg at the end of World War II.
Every person in this corrupt administration who supports and defends the splitting up of asylum seeking families is guilty of evil. Creating internment camps for toddlers and infants is not defensible, period.
Call it crimes against humanity or anything else you want, But history will show that the actions taken on our border with Mexico will rank as another ugly, dark and evil episode in the history of the United States.
