Before I get into this...let me say one thing to my French viewers. In French...so pardon my French if it's bad....
France, vous êtes belle.
Okay, so we have something awesome coming from France, in the words of President
That after the terrorist attack upon France, the President of France still says that he will keep his borders open to Syrian refugees.
Whereas in my country, that is United States of America...the very country that France gifted the Statue of Liberty to with the lines of "Give us your tired, your poor, your hungry"...we've got Jeb Bush pretty much saying that the United States should only let in Syrian refugees if they are Christian.
I'll just go ahead put White-Protestant-Straight Man up because you know you're thinking it.
So, I have to say, France, we need to give you back that wonderful gift you gave us.
Because we do not deserve it. We don't. You deserve it more.
That symbol of American Freedom gifted by France...and now France is doing something that is MORE American than America is doing...at least what the Republicans are doing.
And well, we've got Trump saying that Muslims need to be put in interment camps like we did to the Japanese in World War II.
So...yeah, we are being very un-American here. Extremely so.
So...France, here's your statue back. Je vous remercie, mais nous ne le méritons pas.
And I don't need to say how very un-Christian Jeb Bush is right now.
Any Christian should ask themselves what Jesus would do. And then remind themselves of the Good Samaritan story. Go back and read it. Read the story. And then ask yourself, would Jesus still let in a needy person regardless to whether or not Jesus might get hurt?
The answer is YES. He would let that person in his home. Because he's Jesus. And that's what Jesus does.
And it takes a non-Christian to remind Christians of what being a Christian is all about.
I am more Christian than Jeb Bush or Donald Trump. And I don't even believe in the divinity of Jesus. But I do believe in his ideals. I believe in what he teaches when it comes to not being an asshole to other people. ESPECIALLY to people who need help.
And honestly, if we Americans are that insecure about our own safety from a bunch of needy people, then again...we don't need to have Lady Liberty shining upon our eastern shore. We don't.
I would like to also add a small bit here. Um, guys like Donald Trump and Jeb Bush pretty much state why they want only Christian Syrians in. Because they believe that Christians cannot be terrorists. And that's a fucking lie and you know it.
The Spanish Inquisition comes to mind of Christian terrorism. Anti-abortionists who will bomb clinics comes to mind of what Christian terrorism is. And well, there's the Klu Klux Klan. And what do they burn? Is it a Star of David? Or a crescent moon? Nope, it's a Cross!
Well, then I have these Christians who like to say: "Well, those people aren't representative of my religion, They are not being Christian. They do not speak for Christianity."
You know what guys? The Muslims can say the same thing about ISIS and any other terrorists that does the shit they do. They can say: "Those terrorists do not speak for Islam."
But many so-called Christians like Jeb Bush are pretty much saying that ALL Muslims should be responsible and be pretty much punished for a few douchebag members of their religion.
Well, now you kinda see why I have this attitude of "I'm not a fan of Christians." Because I too share a similar belief that Jeb Bush has. But it's not towards Muslims, it's towards Christians.
Funny how that works out. Huh?
And that's my 2 cents. Which I've found out 2 pennies isn't really worth much at all.
