Re: Should muslims be banned from entering the USA

"If you know a Christian or are one, chances are you've heard or said the following: “The loving or ‘Christ-like’ thing to do is to let immigrants in, welcome them with open arms, and open our borders. We just need to love people.”

I’m all for love - but that’s not all I’m for - which puts me at odds with a large swath of American Christians and other religious folks in the United States. I'm talking about those who think that merely adopting “a loving posture” toward immigrants is a magic elixir for what ails us (and them).

This is shallow thinking at best."

nec timor nec temeritas (neither fear nor foolhardiness.)
