On social media outlets
There have been some folks on social media that have said worse in fact.
The American left as in who? Is it Obama and those who voted for Obama.
You won’t see me being critical of the so called left or right, fwiw I don’t use terms like the left or right. I supported GWB and I support Obama. The last US Presidential election I voted for Gary Johnson. I’m glad Johnson has announced his Candidacy for the 2016 US Presidential election, Ill probably vote Johnson for POTUS.
Here are some numbers, we have taken in 750K refugees since 2001. I would not have an open door policy, as in let in anyone. I support security, but there is no need for example for a separation wall to be built along the Mexican border. I find that over a 10 year period, we can take in 1 million Syrian refugees. The folks who handle immigrants have the best technology in the world to work with. We are not at war with Syrians, we are at war with ISIL, ISIL is a terrorist group made up of Euros, Arabs, Kurds, Asians, Americans, Euros, the list goes on.
If your saying Excommunication is a serious thing, I agree. I find that it might go against Church policy in a major way if I was to say that we should allow in no refugees, or for example say that I support the Muslim ban. Vatican two makes it pretty clear IMO when it comes to refugees,
*“Therefore, the Church reproves, as foreign to the mind of Christ, any discrimination against people or any harassment of them on the basis of their race, color, condition in life or religion. Accordingly, following the footsteps of the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, the sacred Council earnestly begs the Christian faithful to ‘conduct themselves well among the Gentiles’ (1P 2:12) and if possible, as far as depends on them, to be at peace with all men (cf. Rm 12:18), and in that way to be true sons of the Father who is in heaven (cf. Mt 5:45).” *
SuperLuigi, I would be against blocking all refugees from entering our country, do you think this is a fair viewpoint? We ought to take in some # of Syrian refugees IMO. After all Pope Francis has preached to Christians to help the refugees.
