Anything that has happened in America’s past does not negate the responsibility of America speaking out on the genocides going on in the world today, and doing all that is in their power to act against that genocide.
That is the minimal response for an American declaration of genocide.
America is not engaged in a genocide against Muslims. That kind of insinuation is a lie.
Islamists on the other hand are engaged in a genocide against the Christians of the Middle East. The House was acting in good faith in pushing this as a critical issue, and John Kerry was correct in following the lead of the House.
Christians are all sinners, even egregious sinners, and that includes American Christians. Christians are also a people redeemed from sin by the blood of Christ. Therefore, the inertia of guilt is not an option to give Daesh a pass in their genocide against the Christians of the ME.
At this point of time, even for those who reject war against Daesh as an option, it is critical that Christians of the region have access to points of refuge. The refugee camps that exist are involved in the genocide against them, and therefore are not safe for them.
This is a pressing issue.
