On Refugees, Christian Duty, and Moral High Horses

I don’t have time to write my own thoughts about the Syrian Refugee crisis. Other duties demand my attention for the next couple of weeks. But my friend Richard Nelson, who I have previously co-authored with, does an excellent job of summarizing my stand here. The uncharitable behavior I have seen on Facebook in recent days aimed by Christians at other Christians is disappointing to say the least. Funny how those who advocate for compassion towards refugees, seem a bit short on that compassion for their fellow American Christian brethren who may hold a different opinion on the efficacy of the screening process and of the magnitude of the security risk. Also, since when is bringing the refugees to America the only option available to us? There is much more we can do to provide aid and relief to these people who we all agree have great needs other than that.
