Ran across these in blog land (and elsewhere) and thought I’d share:
“rautakyy” asked the following question (slightly edited for clarity and spelling) on violetwisp’s blog:
[W]hat is wrong with people who find it perfectly acceptable that the allegedly all-mighty god can help them find jobs, parking spaces, or even cure their cancer — while at the same time this same entity seems totally unable (or worse, unwilling) to help people in refugee camps, war zones, or in natural catastrophes.
Here’s a couples of messages from “Jesus Christ”:
- “Many Of You Need To Stop Believing In Me,” by Jesus Christ
- A Message From Jesus Christ On The Targeted Killings
Something that many people miss or are not aware of …
It’s simply ridiculous for congress (mostly Republicans) to deny the Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. (or delaying their entry) when there are such strict screening processes. I mean, c’mon. The U.S. Government is the one that put these processes in place to begin with! Don’t these politicians know their own laws? Of course they do, but it’s more than obvious that public opinion rules … as it does in so many cases.
From Zoe’s blog:
I fear for refugees that do get into western countries because when I think of how we have treated one another (Christian to Christian) under the banner of Christian love, I shudder at how they will be treated if and when after years of assimilating most won’t convert to the chosen religion and as a result will still be feared and looked down upon.
