When Christians start supporting white supremacists support a political party which supports separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border, one knows that something is deeply wrong.

Remember what the Bible states about the oppression of immigrants?

New International Version
“Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.”http://biblehub.com/exodus/23-9.htm

Okay, tell me what part of that verse you couldn’t understand.  Do not oppress.

It’s not all bad, thankfully, as The Washington Post quoted a Lutheran pastor, Constance Day, who said in her past Sunday sermon: “I don’t really want to get political in church, but when politicians use our holy book to justify evil acts … it’s appropriate for us to speak up and say that they are wrong. … It’s not hard to find the many admonitions in the Bible about treating foreigners fairly, and loving neighbors as oneself. It’s not hard to find the heart of the Bible, and the heart of God.” (source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/acts-of-faith/wp/2018/06/18/why-many-white-evangelical-christians-are-not-protesting-family-separations-on-the-u-s-border/?utm_term=.57c823e9764d).

As you have read from this columnist before, I truly don’t care if they come nor how many come, because whites stole this country and it’s simple payback-at least from this perspective; the old ‘do unto others’ applies in this case.

You know what they say about paybacks, so bend over.
