The bible is often used as justification when it comes to defending our actions.
Recently, Attorney General Jeff Sessions quoted the bible to defend the treatment of migrants at our Southern border.
He is not the only one who can pull quotes from the bible.
“The stranger who sojourns with you shall be as a native from among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God.” Leviticus 19:34
The quote that he is so easily referencing was also used to justify slavery in the United States.
There is also, the story of the three unknown men who approached the tent of Abraham and Sarah. Abraham could have sent them away, not knowing who they were or what their motives could have been. But instead, he welcomed these men into his home, treating them as honored guests.
When reporters asked Sarah Huckabee Sanders about this immoral treatment, she also referred to the bible.
I’m not a parent, but the sounds of these young kids crying for their parents absolutely breaks my heart. I’m not a biblical scholar by any stretch of the imagination, but even I know that there is nothing that states that children of migrants should be separated from their parents in such an egregious manner.
If there is any justice in this world, you know and his minions will pay for what they are doing to these families. Until then, I can only hope that there are enough reasonable minds in Congress to undo this beyond horrible injustice.
