La La How The Life Goes On

Strangers In a Strange Land

I had a whole post ready to go about the Syrian refugee crisis and the shameful reactions of some American governors toward it in light of the Paris attack.

I was going to point out the particular kind of cruelty that insinuates refugees are likely part of the evil forces they are trying to escape.

I was going to point out that most parents don’t put their children in a dinghy and traverse rough waters risking death in order to become a sleeper cell in Nowhere, Texas.

I was going to point out the rich irony of people simultaneously claiming persecution because Starbucks won’t put Jesus on a paper cup and refusing to acknowledge actual, real, horrific persecution when it is indisputable.  All the people who can spot religious persecution when it involves a coffee cup but can’t spot it when it’s a sea of desperate humans running for their lives.

Instead, I’ll just post these photos with some thoughts, both for Christians and Jews.  The US has been on the wrong side of such a refugee situation before. Let’s be on the right side of history this time.
