Christian Ethics And The Refugee Problem

The selective moral outrage of Leftist is self-elevating, fake moral outrage used as means of control and shaming.

Interesting article.

America is in the midst of an ideological civil war.  The division is deep and wide, and the refugee problem is the latest iteration of the chasm.  Emotional arguments can generate justifications that are extremely hypocritical.  The hypocrisy in this particular debate is that those who want an open-door refugee policy are appealing to Christian morality, calling it unchristian not to let them all in.

When the left starts appealing to Christian morality, it is worth taking note.

These are the people who want to banish Christianity from every aspect of American culture.  Their leader and former president, Barack Obama, famously said, “We are not a Christian nation.”  Suddenly, his liberal cohorts are asserting Christianity to buttress their position.  Nice try, but there is no biblical case for opening the floodgates to refugees infiltrated by Islamic terrorists.

Some Americans are making the dangerous mistake of applying biblical principles of personal morality to matters of national security.  This is one of the passages being quoted in support of an open door refugee policy: “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels” (Hebrews 13:2).  That verse imposes a moral obligation on individuals to be hospitable.  Governmental policies are quite another matter.  When these texts were written, cities were surrounded by walls and secured behind gates.

The highest moral obligation of the president of the United States is to protect our citizens.  You cannot apply the personal ethic of turning the other cheek to national security any more than you can to the security of your spouse or child.  No sane human being would say to a loved one under attack, “Turn the other cheek so that you may be attacked again.”  Just as it is your moral duty to protect and defend your loved ones, the president is under a sacred oath to protect and defend America.
