Christian Leaders Denounce Trump Travel Ban That Saves Christian Lives

THE WESTBORO BAPTIST CHURCH IS LOOKING PRETTY GOOD TODAY.

Today is Sunday, the Christian holy day. The Christian is no more safe from Muslims on Sunday than any other day, though. To be safe from the “religion of peace” requires separation. But Christian leaders want “inclusion,” because anything else would be racist, Islamophobic, bigoted, biased, cruel, mean, and just plain un-Christian, according to them.

And so now that meanie Donald Trump receives God’s curses from them.

New York Times

Over the last decade, Christians in the United States have grown increasingly alarmed about the persecution of other Christians overseas, especially in the Middle East. With each priest kidnapped in Syria, each Christian family attacked in Iraq or each Coptic church bombed in Egypt, the clamor for action rose.

During the campaign, President Trump picked up on these fears, speaking frequently of Christians who were refused entry to the United States and beheaded by terrorists of the Islamic State: “If you’re a Christian, you have no chance,” he said in Ohio in November.

Now Mr. Trump has followed through on his campaign promise to rescue Christians who are suffering. The executive order he signed on Friday gives preference to refugees who belong to a religious minority in their country, and have been persecuted for their religion. The president detailed his intentions during an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network on Friday, saying his administration is giving priority to Christians because they had suffered “more so” than others, “so we are going to help them.”

But if Mr. Trump had hoped for Christian leaders to break out in cheers, that is, for the most part, not what he has heard so far. A broad array of clergy members has strongly denounced Mr. Trump’s order as discriminatory, misguided and inhumane. Outrage has also come from some of the evangelical, Roman Catholic and mainline Protestant leaders who represent the churches most active in trying to aid persecuted Christians.

The so-called Christians protesting Trump’s order are fake Christians, whose highest value is virtue signaling to their social justice warrior colleagues. They would be among the first to convert to Islam if the West is Islamified. Call them wolves in sheep’s clothing.

These so-called leaders know how to twist logic into pretzel form.

By giving preference to Christians over Muslims, religious leaders have said the executive order pits one faith against another. By barring any refugees from entering the United States for nearly four months, it leaves people to suffer longer in camps, and prevents families from reuniting. Also, many religious leaders have said that putting an indefinite freeze on refugees from Syria, and cutting the total number of refugees admitted this year by 60,000, shuts the door to those most in need.

“We believe in assisting all, regardless of their religious beliefs,” said Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, the chairman of the committee on migration for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Jen Smyers, the director of policy and advocacy for the immigration and refugee program of Church World Service, a ministry affiliated with dozens of Christian denominations, called Friday a “shameful day” in America’s history.

It remains to be seen whether Mr. Trump’s executive order will find more support in the pews. During the campaign, Mr. Trump successfully mined many voters’ concern about national security and fear of Muslims. He earned the votes of four out of every five white evangelical Christians, and a majority of white Catholics, exit polls showed.

Christian leaders who defended Mr. Trump’s executive order were rare this weekend. One of the few was the Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham and the president of Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical aid organization. Mr. Graham has long denounced Islam as “evil,” and in July 2015 proposed a ban on Muslims entering the United States as a solution to domestic terrorism, months before Mr. Trump made his first call for the same.

In a statement on Saturday, Mr. Graham said of refugees: “We need to be sure their philosophies related to freedom and liberty are in line with ours.” He added that those who follow Sharia law — a set of beliefs at the core of Islam — hold notions “ultimately incompatible with the Constitution of this nation.”

Jim Jacobson, the president of Christian Freedom International, which advocates for persecuted Christians, applauded the executive order and said: “The Trump administration has given hope to persecuted Christians that their cases will finally be considered.”

Among the claims Mr. Trump made at his campaign rallies was that the Obama administration had denied refugee status to Christians, and had given preference to Muslims.

“How unfair is that? How bad is that?” he told supporters at a rally in St. Clairsville, Ohio, interlaced with boasts about his “tremendous evangelical support.”

The contention was consistent with the conspiracy theories held by some conservative Christians that Mr. Obama was secretly a Muslim, and that he was turning a blind eye to the suffering of Christians while using the reins of government to increase the Muslim population of the United States.

But the claim is simply untrue. In 2016, the United States admitted almost as many Christian refugees (37,521) as Muslim refugees (38,901), according to the Pew Research Center.

While only about one percent of the refugees from Syria resettled in the United States last year were Christian, the population of that country is 93 percent Muslim and only five percent Christian, according to Pew. And leaders of several refugee resettlement organizations said during interviews that it takes 18 months to three years for most refugees to go through the vetting process to get into the United States. Many Syrian Christians got into the pipeline more recently.

“We have no evidence that would support a belief that the Obama administration was discriminating against Christian populations, said the Rev. Scott Arbeiter, the president of World Relief, the humanitarian arm of National Association of Evangelicals.

His organization has resettled thousands of Muslim refugees, with the help of a network of 1,200 evangelical churches. Mr. Arbeiter said that World Relief is opposed to “any measure that would discriminate against the most vulnerable people in the world based on ethnicity, country of origin, religion, gender or gender identity. Our commitment is to serve vulnerable people without regard to those factors, or any others.”

He said that World Relief had already gathered 12,000 signatures from evangelical Christians for a petition opposing Mr. Trump’s executive order.

“We’re going to call out to our network, the 1,200 churches that are actively involved, he said, “and ask them to use their voices to change the narrative, to challenge the facts that drive the fear so high that people would accept this executive order.”

Fear? So now people have no right to be afraid of murderers?

Like I said, it’s twisting logic into a pretzel.

  2. Those people are taking Christ’s name in vain. They are supporting Baal worshipers who obey a p being who brought death that is seen. Jesus would want people who obey a bringer of death that Muslims bow to, to mix with people who obey God’s laws that Jesus kept? Muslims hate love works no ill law calling the bible corrupted that has that law in it. We should want people around who mentally spit on that law? Muslims Allah blew up what God made making many things to kill life. Muslims Allah made craters on the moon. That was Lucifer trying to obliterate what God made trying his best to make the sky to be starless. Image a starless sky. Muslims Allah wanted that for all of us. Allah made stars to explode. We cannot have people like that milling about. They will want people to look like rosy paint. They will make no go zones to justify doing exactly that.

  5. “A broad array of clergy members has strongly denounced Mr. Trump’s order as discriminatory, misguided and inhumane.

    You can’t help some people. Trump tries to save Christians who are not white and these white USA christian people are enraged. USA Christians prefer Muslims, who kill Christians and throw homos off buildings. Feminists and lezzos want more Muslim immigrants – who rape females. If this is all true then Christianity now has within it the seeds of its own destruction. Muslims will win and take over the world, especially via their fast breeder African termite nest.

    Australia has been actively but quietly preferring Christians in it’s refugee program. On average a Syrian Christian is much whiter than an Arab, who are niggers dressed in sheets. Often the Christians have British or French blood in them from the Colonial days. The best in most countries, maybe all, usually have the fairest skin, even in Africa – there is an inconvenient truth.

    In 1979 Australia (Conservative Govt!!) imported a huge number of Lebanese direct from their civil war – always a good idea to take combatants from war zones. They are always the best of the best who love working 9 to 5 and never ever do crimes of violence and never sponge on welfare or have too many dark skin kiddies. Both sides are victims and all the killing is someone elses fault. Guess which group runs a lot of organised crime in Sydney? Which same group rapes white women? Which group has so many members in jail that they have an exercise yard for Lebs only?

    I once met a leb who was a senior judge in NSW. Guess whether he was a Christian or a Muslim?

    • I now see why they say that Cuckstianity is the grandfather of Marxism/socialism. These sjw Christians make me sick!!! They are, to me, far more guilty in the degradation of the west, because at least atheists aren’t literally based on moral foundation. These assholes will let Muslims rape their grandmother, as long as they can virtue signal!

  6. Those figures from Pew are wrong. Ann Corcoran of Refugee Resettlement has been following this for years. She goes directly to the source…the government, posting the stats on her website. Only 2% of refugees that have come here during Obama’s term were Christians.

  7. It is unfair to expect Christian churches in Mecca.

    That’s like expecting a Mosque in the Vatican. Hang on, might have to check that first. You never know with the way things are now since Vatican II…

  8. I have found that Christians can be some of the biggest “haters”. These people will support muzzies invading our shores, yet will be extra judgmental when it comes to non-traditional family building within “white” communities:

    Interestingly, Obama opened up the embryo adoption industry while “Christians” tend towards more regulation.

    Christianity = Christ Insanity for whites.

    • Everyone needs someone to hate. It’s natural. Christians have decided to hate the white race. Sad! Scary too. Christians will die out and if the Christian God is real, he’ll leave for another universe and start all over.

      • If God joined FaceBook would he get as many followers as (((Zuckerbergenstein)))? Who would God follow?

  9. Wow! Lots of Christian haters here! While I agree many are misled, there are pro-White Christians at Amren, The Political Cesspool (James Edwards who has lots of Christian followers, quite a few from Europe), and at Daily Stormer. For all you Stormer followers, Anglin is Christian.

    Trump won the evangelical Christian vote, a good start! They don’t want Muslims here..

    Not all of us are dense.
