Church Takes Stand Against Trump’s Immigration Policy in the Most Foul, Disgusting Way

Published

on

A church from Indianapolis that decided to take a stand against President Trump’s immigration policies caught a lot of flack initially for protesting in a way that many found to be blasphemous.

The church, led by the Rev. Stephen Carlsen, put Christ in a cage to draw attention to the separation and supposed persecution of immigrant families under Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, which has been the talk of the town thanks to children being taken from their parents at the border.

Well, they’ve now decided that probably wasn’t the right way to go about things. They would be correct in that assessment. However, their response was to swap out Jesus for a mirror with the hashtag #EveryFamilyIsHoly.

So apparently you can just ignore the laws of the land and do whatever your heart desires and still be considered holy. That must be nice.

A tall mirror with the phrase #EveryFamilyIsHoly now sits inside a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire on the grounds of Christ Church Cathedral.

For most of the month, that space along Monument Circle was occupied by nativity statues of the baby Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

The Rev. Stephen Carlsen, dean and rector of the church, explained Thursday that the change was made so that visitors can envision themselves enduring the pain felt by detained and separated families.

“The original image was about how God loves us and then how we should love others based on that. This is about how we should love our neighbors as ourselves. That’s the core foundation of all ethics and morality,” said Carlsen. “Can you imagine what it’s like to come to this country seeking safety for your family, and if you did, how would you want to be treated? What would it be like for you to be detained and in a cage?”

The Rev. Canon Lee Curtis, who came up with the original idea that made its debut July 3, said the statues depict a family of refugees seeking asylum in Egypt after Jesus’ birth.

For him, the overwhelming response was encouraging, but there is still much work to be done.

“I was really happy to see the response, and I think that is proof to us the power of these icons and these images, and that’s part of the reason for the change. To be able to allow folks to situate themselves clearly with the plight of those who are detained and separated,” said Curtis. “Growing from the power of that original icon and that original statement, we are now making a very personal invitation to self-reflect … to really seeing yourself in those who are detained and separated.”

Secured borders are a part of biblical law. You can’t have a country without borders. That’s not how reality works. God knows this and that’s why he gave us the example of Israel and discussed this issue within the Bible.

It’s not wrong to send folks back to their home country who violate the laws of your nation. Now, does that mean injustices aren’t committed in the enforcement of these laws? No. Of course bad things sometimes happen during the enforcement of immigration policy.

Children should not be separated from their parents. That’s a flaw in our system that needs to be fixed. However, it’s also wrong, morally speaking, to disobey the law knowing there could be severe consequences for doing so, as in the case of those crossing over illegally.

There’s a lot of work that needs to be done on both sides of this, and that’s okay. However, advocating against immigration policies in favor of open borders is pure insanity.

Here Is A List Of President Joe Biden’s Day 1 Executive Orders

And it begins…

President Joe Biden. Vice President Kamala Harris. Both titles have a certain ugliness when put in front of those two names. My goodness, America. What have we done? From The Daily Wire: Future White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain released a memo Saturday detailing President-elect Joe Biden’s plans to make good on his campaign promises in the first few hours of his presidency. The memo, sent to incoming senior staff and obtained by The New York Times, states that Biden will address the “four crises” facing the nation: Covid-19, the economy, the climate and racial inequity. The actions expand on the Biden campaign’s message of “build back better” and claim to “reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration” while moving the country forward. CONTINUED: On Inauguration Day, Biden will sign twelve executive orders that directly respond to these four “crises,” with additional directives spread out over a ten-day period. Included in this group are plans to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement, reverse the so-called “Muslim Ban” restricting travel from certain countries, extend the pause on student loan payments and continue current restrictions on foreclosures and evictions. The first day of Biden’s presidency will also mark the beginning of the “100 Day Masking Challenge,” with a mask mandate taking effect for people traveling between states and visiting federal property.

McConnell to Trump: If You Pardon Julian Assange, We’re ‘More Likely to Convict You’ [Report]

He said what!?

As soon as it was learned that President Trump had no chance of being re-elected, Mitch McConnell started bashing POTUS pretty hard. Heck, the Kentucky Republican even blamed Trump for the Capitol riot. But if what Tucker Carlson is saying is true, it goes to show that the Senate Majority Leader was never really in Trump’s corner to begin with. WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351704268563075072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351707348373557253%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351707348373557253 https://twitter.com/adamgoldmanNYT/status/1351721466803445762?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351721466803445762%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F Despite everything POTUS accomplished in just four years, Trump still gets little to no respect from members of his own party. From Fox News: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. CONTINUED: One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. Sounds like things are shaking up to be a little crazy before Trump leaves office. The guy can’t have a moment of peace. History will remember everything the Trump Administration accomplished in a positive light, though. Disagree?
