Scribes, Pharisees, Hypocrites on Immigration
Franklin Graham has joined Pope Francis and a host of wolves in pastors' clothing who declare there is no defense of of any immigration policy that results in the separation of children from their parents. I wonder if the obvious moral reasoning is too difficult for such people to follow:
If the parents of children commit a crime, such as murder, armed robbery, or the illegal invasion of another country, they may find themselves arrested and imprisoned for a time. The fault in all such cases does not lie with the legal system or with the victims of the crime, whether that victim is the person who is murdered or the people who will have to pay for the medical care, education, welfare, and criminal activity of the illegal invaders.
Christian pastors and leaders throughout history have often been stupid, ignorant, and corrupt, always eager to twist the Faith to fit whatever opinions are fashionable, but the current generation of vipers is really the limit. Which set is worse these days, the corrupt leftists in the Vatican or the cynical Gantrys in the Southern Baptist Convention. I know we are all supposed to take up our cross and carry it, but does it have to be weighted down by this Ship of Fools?
PS I know his father had family reasons for naming his son "Franklin," but I am sure there were Jewish families in which Adolf was a not uncommon name. I still cannot understand why the Rev. Billy picked a name that exemplifes atheism, hedonism, and Free Masonry.
