This guy is something else, if only because he calls himself a Christian and does such unchristian-like things. Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton decided he needed to leap down from his high perch of self-righteousness and write a new bill to make sure we treat those who carry crosses better than we treat Muslim Syrian refugees and their children.
Yes, Jesus loves you, but only if you are Christian. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…if the neighbors are Christian, and if you are Cotton.
So, the good senator decided it would be a good idea to build a law that makes is far easier for Christians to leave the horror of ISIS and come to the U.S. In an interview with radio’s host Kevin Miller Tuesday, Cotton talked about his moral legislating:
‘I think the U.S. has a moral imperative to try and save these Christians and the other small minority groups. So I would create a special kind of visa program that wouldn’t take any access away from anyone else in the United States, but would recognize that Christians — like Jews in the Soviet Union — are being singled out for persecution and elimination. That’s in our interest, as it is in combating the Islamic State.’
Cotton has opposed all of President Obama’s efforts to allow Syrian refugees into our country. But when Secretary of State John Kerry spoke out about the genocide that ISIS is carrying out against Arab Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities in Syria, Cotton’s ears perked up.
Then, terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium really got Cotton’s blood stirring. Oh sure, Republicans on the hill have been trying to decide whether to forbid any or all Muslim refugees that would come here. But Cotton always manages to come out less Christian-like than any of them, especially when he can pile on after a terrorist attack.
Did it ever occur to him, that if someone was really determined to come into the country and do damage, they would just skate in through the Visa program which is filled with holes? Did he think to question how long and how difficult the process for entry into our country is, a country which says, “Give me your tired, give me poor, give me your huddled masses yearning to be free?”
Is it possible that a so-called Christian refugee could be of so dubious a character as Cotton? After all, Christians do make mistakes. That was the whole purpose of Jesus, and He must be working overtime with Cotton.
This Christian man is afraid of little children running away from the Central American drug violence, so violent that their mothers would send them alone with murky characters into a total unknown rather than stay at home. They must have been so desperate.
Republicans found ways to justify blocking the children’s buses, just so that none of these scary little kids would find food or shelter. Now, Cotton has found a new “other” to persecute, the little not-Christian children fleeing ISIS.
