Did I Miss…
Did I miss the part in the bible where Jesus was scared of threats of unjust violence?
Did I miss the part in the bible where Christian moral obligation stopped at the border?
Did I miss the part where Christianity started when a Middle Eastern couple was denied refuge?
Did I miss the United States removing the following words from the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty that was given to us by the French:
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” ?
Did I miss the new strategy on the war terror where the United States shows that it is not accepting of Muslims, is Islamophobic, and allows innocents to die in order to push moderate Muslims towards being radicals?
Did I miss the part of United States history where the country wasn’t built on the backs of refugees and immigrants?
Did I miss the part where Americans are so scared of terrorists that we believe that terrorists are capable of beating the CIA, FBI, NSA, Department of State and military vetting process?
