Immigration

34 The foreigner residing among you

must be treated as your native-born.

Love them as yourself, 

for you were foreigners in Egypt.

I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 19:34

 

19 And you are to love those who are foreigners,

for you yourselves were foreigners in Egypt.

Deuteronomy 10:19

 

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, 

for by so doing some people

have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

Hebrews 13:2



Political Commentary

In Response to Republicans refusing to help Syrian Refugees.


The Republican Party does not want to face the Syrian Refugee crisis with humanitarianism; Republicans just want to galvanize their base with fear-mongering, prejudice, and discrimination. These are Syrian refugees fleeing Isis, fleeing for their lives and the Republican Party wants to throw them to the lions. Imagine that all of these refugees are in a lifeboat. The Republicans would turn the boat around and would let the refugees drown; and with self-righteousness, pride and boasting would call themselves Christians. In their self-righteousness they propose a litmus test on who should live and who should die; that’s disgraceful!

Republicans want America to cower in fear; what America needs to do is to Step-Up to the problem with courage with steady, calm thinking (not what you could expect from a reactionary hot-head like Donald Trump!)

American can either be partners with genocide, turn our backs and let the refugees die, OR we can stop fighting one another and in unity fight Isis.

America is not naïve! Would terrorist try to infiltrate with Syrian refugees? YES! Republicans tell us that we cannot accept refugees because they preach that “government doesn’t work.” And in Republican hands, government doesn’t work! What is the Republican record: 2 government shut downs, budget crisis, the Sequester of severe financial cuts, dismantled provisions of the Civil Rights Act, fight responsible gun laws (background checks) defend the Confederate flag (the symbol of hate & slavery), the worst recession since the Great Depression, and gave America two of the longest wars in American history (When Bush LIED to America about WOMD)!

Republican cowardice to help refugees has Immoral Consequences. As Americans we should not make hasty decisions out of fear but with hearts of compassion!

Hebrews 13:2


 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear,

because fear has to do with punishment.

The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18

The entire law is summed up
in a single command:
"Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Galatians 5:14


If you really keep the royal law
found in Scripture,
“Love your neighbor as yourself,”
you are doing right.
James 2:8


"Love Your Neighbor"

is the Greatest Commandment given by Jesus Christ





While speaking at the Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson likened Syrian refugees fleeing the country’s bloody civil war and Islamic State violence to rabid dogs!

How IMMORAL has the Republican Party become?



What does Lady Liberty,
the Statue of Liberty Say?

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!


Republicans are NO longer saying,
'Give me your poor, your tired,
your huddled masses.'

The Republican Party Tearing Down
the Values of America!
