I have to speak out today for the soul of our country. The majority of this country, both democrats and republicans are appalled by the Trump Administration Policy of separating families of immigrants, illegal or not at the border and holding the children in detention centers from former Walmart stores to tent cities.
On this Father’s Day I appeal to all parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, brothers, sisters, son, daughters, Christians, atheists, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Republicans, Democrats, independents, everyone to imagine your child or any child living in a tent city in Texas during the summer and winner. These are Children, the innocent in the eyes of the lord who Christ says to welcome in his name and what we do for the least of these we do for him. Is there any justification to treat a child this way? No, there is not. I know that by doing this we are in effect putting Christ in prison; so what will be his judgement on ours souls if we allow this to continue.
There is no place in Christ’s teachings that can be used to Justify the Trump Administration Policy of separating families and using the Children as political hostages for political purposes, this is worse than when Iran took US Embassy employees hostage for political purposes. While the children are being treated better than the Iranian hostages, for now, the principle is the same and this is not a fake moral equivalence.
We cannot as Christians condone or turn a blind eye to this policy which, on its face, is a crime against Children and therefore a crime against humanity according to international law. We cannot say Romans 13 says he have to stand for this because we must obey the government, governments can be wicked and we are not to support the wicked and Christ’s teachings in his own words, The Word, take precedence over anything else in the Bible written by a man, even apostles.
Do not let Christianity be used for evil, speak up and call for change because right now Trump is not bringing God back to America he is selling our souls and it is us that will have to pay the price.
I write this as a Christian but it applies to all because we are a measure of humanity and right now we are coming up short in that regard. This separation of families and detention of children is based on racism, hate. We must take action or we will lose ourselves and those with hate in their hearts will lead us down a path we do not want to go like the Nazis did to Germany and I don’t want the weight of one innocent life, let alone 6 million, hanging around my neck.
Not only do we have to stop this atrocity now but we must hold the authors of it accountable.
From Stephen Miller, John Kelly, Jeff Sessions, to Donald Trump need to be charged and tried with Crimes Against Humanity, and if convicted placed in prison. All involved should have to answer for this crime(s) because “I was just following orders” is no excuse when an order is known to violate human rights and therefore is an unlawful order.
