Separating Children From their Parents at the Border is Causing ‘Irreparable Harm’

NPR reports

In South Texas, pediatricians started sounding the alarm weeks ago as migrant shelters began filling up with younger children separated from their parents after they crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

The concerned pediatricians contacted Colleen Kraft, president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and she flew to Texas and visited a shelter for migrant children in the Rio Grande Valley. There, she saw a young girl in tears. “She couldn’t have been more than 2 years old,” Kraft says. “Just crying and pounding and having a huge, huge temper tantrum. This child was just screaming, and nobody could help her. And we know why she was crying. She didn’t have her mother. She didn’t have her parent who could soothe her and take care of her.”

The number of migrant children in U.S. government custody is soaring — partly the result of a policy decision by the Trump administration to separate children from their parents who are being prosecuted for unlawful entry. Hundreds of the children being held in shelters are under age 13.

Medical professionals, members of Congress and religious leaders are calling on the Trump administration to stop separating migrant families. They question whether these shelter facilities are appropriate for younger children.

Etc.  Is this who Americans are now?  How can it be allowed?  It is evil.

Job’s Friends Were Idiots

They should have said but two things to Job-

  • We love you
  • We are here for you

Anything beyond that; any attempt to explain the inscrutable Divine plan or purpose, is blasphemous utter folly.  That’s why the New Testament never attempts a theodicy.  Only fools make that effort.

It’s Time For Christians To Break Some Laws

Angelina Grimké when she became one of the very few white southern women to openly support the cause of abolition. In her “Appeal to Christian Women of the South” written in 1836, she states: “If a law commands me to sin I will break it …The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians.” – Via Kurt Richardson on Facebook.

It’s time for Christians to refuse to follow the dictates of ICE and other government agencies doing evil.  It is a sin to treat people cruelly.  It is time for Christians to break some laws.

If this is ok with you, you are not a Christian.

I Don’t Care What Your Politics Are…

If you’re ok with this child being taken from his father in the name of ‘security’, you, sir or madam, are a godless monster and you deserve every eternal moment of torment you’ll receive.

Harvard is a Racist Dump

Harvard consistently rated Asian-American applicants lower than others on traits like “positive personality,” likability, courage, kindness and being “widely respected,” according to an analysis of more than 160,000 student records filed Friday by a group representing Asian-American students in a lawsuit against the university.

Etc.

Racist dump.  Hey, Yankees, Harvard is in your hood.  Racists.
