Both the Jewish and the Christian faiths makes it clear that we are to welcome the stranger, and provide special care for the weak among us. The current polices of intentionally splitting up families, especially of those seeking asylum in our country, are profoundly wrong.
Regardless of the purpose of such policies, ripping children away from their parents and detaining them in mass incarceration centers cannot be justified. Where is the outrage from people of faith at such intentional trauma to innocents?
Far too much of evangelical Christianity has become a cult of blind praise and support of the current president’s golden calf racist policies. It is time to again ask WWJD. It certainly would not be to split children from their mothers and put them into kennels.
There are those who refuse to see. There are those that look the other way. There are those too busy to care. Then there are those who actively endorse and support this evil. In the final analysis…they are all the same. Silence in the face of evil is complicity.
Here is a person of faith that gets it. If only all white evangelicals could understand who they have strayed from the teachings of Jesus…
Truth is where you find it, right? When I saw this photo it stopped me cold. I would not ever allow a child or a grandchild of mine say the things or act the way the Liar-in-Chief speaks and acts.
I am confounded that a third of our country sees the man as a leader and a good role model. His gross immorality and blatant lack of ethical behavior is abhorrent. Yet, numerous white evangelical leaders continue to choose him over the message of the Gospel.
Tomorrow night is the State of the Union Address. For the first time in history we need to make sure we protect our children from watching.
