When a father is sent to prison for a DUI, he’s separated from his children.
When mom is sent to prison for her DUI, she’s separated from her children.
Nobody cared about parents and children being separated until it was discovered that an Obama policy of separating children from their illegal parents, whose border jumping is a crime, is being continued under the Trump administration.
It’s all political bullsh*t and it makes me extremely angry.
Now the faggot loving, un-Biblical United Methodist church has jumped in with more bullsh*t.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions is a United Methodist, and he is also the face of the Trump administration’s widely condemned policy of separating migrant children from their families at the border. In a Friday statement slamming the policy as “a shocking violation of the spirit of the Gospel,” the United Methodist Church registered its dissent to Sessions’ use of the Bible to defend the separations:
Jesus is our way, our truth, our life. The Christ we follow would have no part in ripping children from their mothers’ arms or shunning those fleeing violence. It is unimaginable that faith leaders even have to say that these policies are antithetical to the teachings of Christ.
Christian sacred texts should never be used to justify policies that oppress or harm children and families. [United Methodist Church]
The statement explicitly called out Sessions as a “fellow United Methodist,” asking him to reverse the decision to split up families. It noted that the close context of the passage Sessions cited, Romans 13, includes instructions for Christians to “extend hospitality to strangers” and to do “no wrong to a neighbor.”
Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families in April and May alone; some of these families crossed the border illegally, while others are legal asylum-seekers.
Asylum seekers are also illegals if they jump the border, contrary to the last sentence.
One more thing.
Don’t be fooled by the word asylum. Historically, asylum seekers were people persecuted by the Communists. Now, they’re just ordinary mestizos running away from their fuxated economies and equally fuxated countries. They’re gaming the system.
NBC quotes Jeff:
“Persons who violate the law of our nation are subject to prosecution … I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said. “Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves … and protect the weak and it protects the lawful.”
He called on religious leaders to “speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.”
Later Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders doubled down on Sessions’ comments, saying it is “very biblical to enforce the law.”
“That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible,” she said, responding to a question about Sessions’ comments about Scripture’s supporting the administration’s policies.
