    Sessions Cites Bible To Defend Separating Immigrant Families GTSA

    From The Associated Press

    The Associated Press wrote:
    Sessions Cites Bible To Defend Separating Immigrant Families AAyF5ce

    WASHINGTON — Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited the Bible on Thursday in his defense of his border policy that is resulting in hundreds of immigrant children being separated from their parents after they enter the U.S. illegally.

    Sessions, speaking in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on immigration, pushed back against criticism he had received over the policy. On Wednesday, a cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church said that separating mothers from their babies was "immoral."

    Sessions said many of the recent criticisms were not "fair or logical and some are contrary to law."

    "I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained them for the purpose of order," he said. "Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful."

    Last month, the attorney general announced a "zero tolerance" policy that any adult who enters the country illegally is criminally prosecuted. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.

    According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, more than 650 children were separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border during a two-week period in May.

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that she hadn't seen Sessions' comments but affirmed that the Bible did back up the administration's actions.

    "I can say that it is very biblical to enforce the law. That is actually repeated a number of times throughout the Bible," she said. "It's a moral policy to follow and enforce the law."

    In an unusually tense series of exchanges in the White House briefing room, Sanders wrongly blamed Democrats for the policy separating children from parents and insisted the administration had made no changes in increasing the use. Until the policy was announced in April, such families were usually referred for civil deportation proceedings, not requiring separation.

    "The separation of illegal alien families is the product of the same legal loopholes that Democrats refuse to close, and these laws are the same that have been on the books for over a decade, and the president is simply enforcing them," she said.

    "We don't want this to be a problem," she said.

    Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the archbishop of Galveston-Houston, told the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Wednesday that he was joining other religious leaders in opposing the government's border policy.

    "Our government has the discretion in our laws to ensure that young children are not separated from their parents and exposed to irreparable harm and trauma," DiNardo said in a statement.

    If find it funny how people use The Bible to justify the things they do know it's wrong.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions cited Romans 13.  Let me bring it back around for you all:

    Romans 13-7 NKJV wrote:1 Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.  2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.  3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil.  Do you want to be unafraid of the authority?  Do good what is good and you will have praise from the same.  4 For he is God's minister to you for good.  But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute the wrath on him who practices evil.  5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience' sake.  6  For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God's ministers attending continually to this very thing.  7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.
    Nowhere in that very piece of scripture did it say anything or make mention of separating children from their parents, or family members from other family members.

    For this administration to justify themselves as "doing God's work" by separating these children from their parents, whether they are illegal immigrants or not, that is not biblical.  In fact it goes against the one ordinance that was ordained by God Himself, and that ordinance is FAMILY!

    Just saying!
