I didn't catch the man's name but he was interviewed earlier today on Public Radio and self-identified as an Evangelical Christian... he sounded like a TRUE follower of Christ.
Using the parable of The Good Samaritan, this man took the stance that Syrians must be let in. That we are judged by what we do for others... particularly those in need.
I would love to see a cartoon in a Christian magazine that catered to this more enlightened ilk where the image is that of an individual hoping to pass through heaven's gates. While waiting for the verdict... this individual, having served as a politician in the early 21st century (like Ebenezer Scrooge) is prompted to look at his own behavior in the form of shutting the door on so many desperate refugees. These refugees were placed into that status at least partially on account of his nation's policies, ones he was instrumental in enacting.
"For as you do unto others, so shall it be done unto you."
And it's almost Christmas, and here this battery of representatives together don't demonstrate a modicum of charity for those in need.
Shame on them!
